Hunter is 29 months.
I can’t believe we are almost done with the alphabet! We will be going through the alphabet again in the fall when we start preschool… well that is the plan at least. We will see how it goes with a newborn in the house
Letter U activities:
Hunter used water colors to paint his letter U paper.
Hunter loves these pages- he is getting better about stamping the marker in the circles.
He really enjoyed stamping it hard enough to make the ink splatter (and smear all over his arms).
U is for Umbrella
Our shape this week was the square.
Hunter put square pieces of tissue paper onto a square piece of contact paper, that we made into a sun catcher.
Hunter had some square crackers for a snack.
Hunter played with these foam insect creatures in his sensory bin.
Another day I put these rocks meant for a fish tank in his sensory bin. He was playing with them so nicely that I left the room for a minute to put a load of laundry in the dryer. Soon, I heard Hailey yelling. When I came back to see what was going on, Hunter was pouring these little rocks down the back of her shirt.
When we came home from Disney World I decided it was time to get down to the potty training business. So, Hunter put on some underwear and did an excited dance around the living room to celebrate. He did really well and only had a couple of accidents. For the most part he went on the toilet and even told me once when he had to go. He was so excited! The next morning when he woke up he said, “Today I want to wear my Minnie and Mickey diapers.” And he has not wanted anything to do with the underwear again.
We have been having fun learning all about worms and at the end of our worm unit, we made dirt pudding with worms (chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos and gummy worms). Hunter loved it!
We learned how important worms are to the earth, so when we finished observing our worms, we let them go in our garden.

Hunter loves books!! I love how he goes and finds a book and lays down to read it!
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
Sorry that we disappeared all week! We were enjoying family from out of town at the beginning of the week and then on Wednesday we finally had our closing for our new house- so we’ve been a bit busy! We probably won’t be around a whole lot next week either while we get settled in. But we did have time to do one activity this week- our letter of the week was the letter U. I showed Hailey some choices for a craft we could do and she picked to make the Unicorn U that we saw at No Time for Flash Cards.
Here’s what you’ll need: a U and a horse shape in a color of your choice, a horn for the unicorn, another piece of construction paper, paint, glue and something to paint with. We used silver glitter paint- it dries very sparkly looking.
Paint the letter U.
Paint the horse. (By the way- my mom drew this horse for us since I have no artistic ability! Thanks mom!)
Glue everything together- and here is your Unicorn U.
