Sorry I’ve been gone so long. It’s been so busy around here. Also, my computer was down for a couple of weeks, so I had to share with dh. We have done a lot of fun learning activities but only a few pictures to document. Still, I thought I’d share…
We’ve spent a lot of time at the park. Zhana is such an outdoors kid and I’m loving it. We don’t have a swing set at our home but recently we did hang up a single swing on our back porch and she has a little slide. She goes out there every chance she gets. I’m hoping to make her a sandbox soon. What are your favorite out door items that you have for your little ones? I’ve been considering one of those one-person teeter tots. I feel like it is good for kiddos to be outside a lot when it is warm so I’m very interested to know what is in your backyards.
Also, I have to admit that one of the greatest benefits of park play is that she gets completely worn out. My daughters “goes” from the second her foot hits to ground in the morning until very late at night when she finally gives in and passes out. She rarely takes naps willingly, so I enjoy a day at the park for this secondary benefit…
You'll need :
Place the paint into muffin tins. Drop your marble in the paint. Lay the paper in a shoebox. Roll marble by moving box from side to side. We both enjoyed it because it was different from our usual painting.
We’ve been playing dress up, making masks, and so on…
We worked on the letter C. We now have 3 of our wooden blocks completed. A is decorated in apples, B like a bee, and C similar to cow. I highly recommend this activity. You can get the wooden letters for $1 then simply paint them a theme corresponding to the letter. It makes a cute little room decoration, learning, art, and helps them to remember what they’ve learned. When people visit, she always shows them because she’s quite proud of them.
We made handprint Leprechauns for St. Patrick’s Day. I got this idea from another blog Ramblings of a Crazy Woman. We both loved this and made several!
We did aluminum foil painting that I read about at the Teachingtinytots blog.
We’ve done much more that I just haven’t documented well but here’s a start to well starting again, lol.
