It's a Plane!

11
Mar

We have been learning all about transportation and today we made an airplane.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: toilet paper roll, paint, something to paint with, small pieces of cardboard for the wings and (not pictured) black construction paper.  Cut slits in the toilet paper roll and insert the wings.

Paint your airplane.

Add some windows by cutting little circles from the black construction paper.  I had Hailey just stick them to the wet paint so we could skip the whole gluing step.

Fly the airplane.  (Please excuse the mess in the background.)

We are still finishing up our transportation theme.  I was really excited the other day because Hailey brought one of her fire trucks to me and said, “This is for transportation.”  So I was excited that she really understood what the word transportation meant.

Our latest transportation project was to make a train, which Hailey has been begging to do.  I got the idea for this on another website and I can not remember now where it was.  If anyone knows please tell me so I can give credit to the other site.

Here is what you’ll need: toilet paper roll or paper towel rolls, 6 index cards, construction paper, yarn, glue, tape, scissors, something to color with.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Have your child color the index cards.

While your child is busy coloring you can cut out some black circles for the wheels and then some other shapes for decorating the train.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Glue the wheels onto your index cards- put 2 on each of 4 of the index cards.

Add some other shapes for the windows.

For the engine- cut a toilet paper roll into 2 pieces- one 2/3′s long and the other 1/3 long.  And cut out some more black circles.

Here’s a view of the finished train from the front.  I used tape to put most of it together.

And a view from the back of the train.

Hailey loved making this.  When she saw it all coming together her face just lit up with excitement.

Letter of the Week- Letter L

09
Mar

Sorry that I have disappeared for the last week- we have been really busy! We are in the midst of selling our house and that can be a pretty time consuming process. I am going to try to post more regularly- but I just can’t promise that I will be able to.

Our letter of the week this week is the letter L.  We made a Letter L with Lines on it.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need:  letter L on a piece of construction paper, another piece of construction paper, paint and Q-Tips.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Paint some lines on your letter L.  I showed Hailey how to make a line and then she took over.  She did pretty well making some lines and then asked me to help her finish.

Here is our finished Lined Letter L.

Tot School- Week in Review

01
Mar

Hailey is currently 28 months old.

Tot School

Last Sunday we were busy enjoying my parents visiting us and I never got around to putting up our Tot School post.  So, this week I am covering the last two weeks.  Since we are in the process of selling our house I have cut back a bit on the amount of activities we have been doing.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things 

Our letter of the week during the first week was J and since Hailey love The Veggie Tales we made a Junior J.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Our theme for the week was transportation and we started our week out by making this Shape Truck.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey sorted these different vehicles from smallest to largest.  She surprised me when she was able to do it without any help.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey really enjoyed wheel painting.  She was so excited to see the tracks she was leaving on the paper.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We also worked on retelling “The Little Engine That Could” and did this sequencing activity.

During week two we focused on the letter K and we continued with our transportation theme.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We made a King K.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey loved making this fun sail boat.

Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots did last week.
