Hunter is 14.5 months old
We missed a week of Tot School because Hunter was sick He had a cold that turned into an ear infection and he was just miserable. So, we took it easy for a week. We were back to work this week though and had a fun week.
Our theme was transportation and we were still focusing on the color red.
Hunter worked on a transportation puzzle. When he put the piece in the correct spot he got to hear the sound that the vehicle mades. He loved it!
He had to stop working for a minute to suck on his toe
Hunter also has this toy, when he matches up the vehicle it makes the sound of the vehicle. He usually needs help matching them up, but he gets so excited when he hears the sound.
We also read some books about transportation. This is one of his Lego books, where we can look at the pictures and build the vehicles.
The airplane and the car we made with Legos.
Hunter also tried out the train he got for Christmas.
He’s still not quite ready for it He prefers to just take it apart.
Hunter loved this parking garage. He had a lot of fun with all of his vehicles on the ramp.
Hailey wanted to make a picture using a car too. You can see Hunter in the background eating the paint off of his car.
Hunter used the d0-a-dot markers for the first time. He LOVED it!! He was not happy when it was time to put it away.

Hailey and Hunter made these in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots have been up to this week.
Hailey and Hunter made this cute Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft that I saw at Seusstastic Classroom.
Hailey did this printable I also found at Seusstastic Classroom. She wrote, “I would tell the to please cause trouble.” She said she would tell them that because they always do the opposite.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss
On our last day of celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday we read There’s a Wocket in My Pocket. After we read the story we talked about rhyming. Hailey had to make up a word that rhymed with Wocket and then we would create whatever character she made up. She decided to go with a Locket.
Hailey picked out all the colors to make her Locket character and cut out all of the body parts.
She glued everything together.
We made a pocket which Hailey cut out.
Here is the finished Locket.
The Locket in the Pocket.
As we continue celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday this week we read Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss. And what fun would it be to read that book and not make some Oobleck? So, that’s what we did.
To make the Oobleck you will need:
1 cup of water
2 cups of corn starch
green food coloring
Mix it all together and then have fun:
Ooblek is a Non-Newtonian fluid. When you pour it, it’s like a liquid…
when you squeeze it, it oozes out of your hands…
when you push on it, it’s like a solid.
It is so fascinating to play with!
