Tot School

Hunter is 18.5 months old.

It’s been a few weeks since I have done a Tot School post.  We have been so busy enjoying summer that I just haven’t had time.  So, here are some of the things we have been working on over the last few weeks.

Fourth of July Watercolor Activity

For the 4th of July we made some cute pictures, using glue to create stars that resisted water colors when the kids painted.  See the full post here.

July 4th Utensil Holder Craft

Hailey and Hunter worked really hard and made some utensil holders that we used at our July 4th party- they turned out super cute and you can see them here.

July 4th Craft

This was my favorite 4th of July activity- we made candle jars and they turned out so cute.  You can see the finished project here.  They were perfect for decorations at our July 4th party.

Sea Creature Craft

This week we started an ocean/beach theme and here Hunter is working on a spiny sea creature.

Rainbow Fish Craft

Hunter also worked on making a super cute Rainbow Fish- you can see the whole post here.

Tot School

The color Hunter is learning is purple, so he made a purple suncatcher to add to our collection.

July 4th Utensil Holder

This fun craft is a perfect decoration for your 4th of July picnic!

July 4th Utensil Holder Craft

You will need 3 empty containers, I used the 1/2 gallon cardboard containers of juice.  We don’t usually drink those, but they were on sale for $1, so they were perfect.  You also need red, white and blue paint, something to put the paint in and something to paint with, craft sticks, star shaped sponge and some glue.

July 4th Utensil Holder Craft

Hailey and Hunter painted the craft sticks red, white and blue.

Once the paint is dry, glue your craft sticks to the cardboard container.  I used Mod Podge glue.  (I did this step myself.)

Hailey added some white star shapes, using the sponge on the blue sections.
