Hunter is 27 months old.
We’ve had a kind of crazy 2 weeks with the stomach bug going around our family. It took us 2 weeks to do 1 weeks worth of activities, but we are finally all on the mend and back to normal (I hope).
Letter O Activities:
I used several printables from 1+1+1=1. Hunter always starts out by coloring his letter of the week paper. Some weeks he puts a few scribbles on the paper and says he is done. Other times he spends a very long time coloring every part of the paper.
He tried his first lacing activity, and he did pretty well (with some help).
Putting together the letter O puzzle
Pointing out an O on the ostrich.
Hunter glued foam letter Os onto the ostrich.
We made an O is for Octopus. Hunter spent a while using his do-a-dot markers to decorate the O.
The finished octopus.
After we sang the alphabet I asked Hunter to point to the letter O on his ABC board. I expected him to (possibly) find the O flashcard. Instead he pointed to an O on the boarder. I was excited that he really recognized the letter O.
Hunter is just loving his blocks lately!
Working on a puzzle.
More building with the blocks.
Practicing his cutting with playdough.
The only sensory bin we did this week was with foam letters.
Painting with water colors… maybe all the other moms already know this, but I found a great way to do water colors with a toddler. Before Hunter started painting, I took an eye dropper and dropped a few little drops of water into each color. After a few minutes, the paint was all ready to use without Hunter having to remember to dip his brush in the water before the paint.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
Our letter this week is the letter O and we made a fun Octopus.
Here’s what you’ll need: paper with a large letter O, 8 strips of tissue paper for the arms, 2 wiggle eyes, paint dobbers and glue.
Use the paint dobbers to decorate the O.
Glue the tissue paper onto the back of the letter O and then add the eyes.
