Tot School- Week in Review

24
May

Hailey is 31 months old.

Tot School

We had another great week of Tot School.  Our letter this week was the letter N and our theme was spring.  Here are the activities that we did this week with links to the activities that I posted about during the week.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Our letter of the week was the letter N, so we made this Numbers N.

Our theme this week was spring- here is what worked on:

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We made a book about How to Plant a Seed.

Then we planted some grass seed in a cup and we have been watching it all week.

Then we talked about how trees look different in the winter versus the spring and made a really pretty spring tree.

Hailey worked on sorting umbrellas by color.

We painted outside with water.

Hailey practiced pouring some bubble solution.

And, of course, she loved playing with her bubbles.

We pretended to make a garden and Hailey decided that she would plant some cucumber seeds  in her garden.

We made a spring counting book- here is one of the pages from the book- after Hailey colored I gave her three pieces of orange felt to glue on.

This is another page from Hailey’s spring counting book- we used a red stamp pad for this page and used Hailey’s finger to make prints for the ladybugs.  Then I used a black marker to make them look like ladybugs.

We also made some yummy brownies.

We had a fun and busy week.  Check out what the other tots have been up to over at 1+1+1=1.

Spring Counting Book

22
May

For the last day of our spring theme we made a cute spring counting book.  Rather than show all of the materials in one large group I am going to show you how we made each page of the book.  This is something I found in a Mailbox magazine and printed out but you could easily make this yourself.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

First Hailey cut the pages apart.  She did an excellent job cutting and staying pretty close to the black line!

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

For the first page- Hailey colored the word blue and then added a little blue square of construction paper to represent the sky.  We also glued each page onto a piece of construction paper for durability and to make it easier to staple everything together at the end to make it into a book.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey colored the word yellow and then added two circles of tissue paper for the suns.

After Hailey did some coloring I gave her three pieces of orange felt to make the kites.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey colored everything brown and then added the wiggle eyes.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey glued on some little cotton balls for the bunnies tails.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We added purple pom poms to this page for the flowers after Hailey colored everything purple.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

This was Hailey’s favorite page- she put her finger onto a red stamp pad (a “washable” stamp pad).  The she stamped her finger onto the paper.  I added some lines and dots to make it look like ladybugs.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Hailey glued on 8 pieces of green yarn for this page.

Once everything was dry I added a title page (“It Must Be Spring Time!”) and stapled everything together to make it into a book.  It turned out really cute- and it was a fun to tie our spring theme together with colors and counting.

I Will Plant…

For our next spring project we made a picture of what Hailey wanted to plant in her garden.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: paper to draw what you want to plant in your garden (mine is from one of my Mailbox magazines, but you could easily make your own), glue, colored pencils, seeds.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Color the picture.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Open the seeds- Hailey decided she wanted to plant cucumber seeds “like Larry” (from the Veggie Tales).

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Put some glue on the paper and add your seeds.
