Tot School

Tot School

Hunter is 16 months old.

We had another fun week!  We are still focusing on the color yellow and Earth Day.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

We dyed some rice yellow.  I used food coloring mixed with a little vinegar and mixed it up in a ziploc bag with some help from Hunter.  The rice looked mostly orange though and I didn’t have enough to cover all of the rice:-(  I added some yellow water color and that turned the rest of the rice yellow.

We ended up with an interesting colorful mixture.

I decided that rice is an outdoor activity so Hunter enjoyed playing with it on the deck.

We also made a yellow discovery bottle.  You can’t really tell from the picture, but there’s lots of stuff in there- and as long as it makes noise Hunter loves it.  So I made sure we included yellow beads so it would rattle when he shook it.  Hunter put everything in the bottle- he did really good putting each piece in, his fine motor skills have improved a lot.

Success- he loved it!
