Shapes & Colors:
Our shape this week was the rectangle- Hunter worked hard at stamping some rectangles onto his paper.
Hunter knows all of his colors, but he really enjoys doing these printables, so we keep using these. He doesn’t need any help– he looks at the color word and finds the right marker to color the picture.
One day Hunter played with shaving cream in his sensory bin. It was a huge mess, but he had a great time.
We practiced counting by putting a number on the paper and then counting out the correct number of pieces.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
We are almost done with the alphabet! We aren’t doing a lot of crafts as we are busy enjoying the little bit of summer that is left. We are going on vacation in a couple of weeks and when we get back we’re going to get back into our routine of doing more crafts and learning activities.
Anyhoo- this week I showed Hailey 2 choices for the letter X over at No Time for Flashcards and she wanted to make the “X is for X-Ray” choice. We did ours a little bit differently, but we got our idea from there.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper- black and white, scissors, crayons, glue and saran wrap.
Cut out two bones and a boarder. If your child is a bit older you can have your child help with the cutting. Since Hailey is almost 3 she is going to start doing a lot more cutting for our projects.
Color the black paper- we used white and silver.
Glue the bones on to look like an X.
Take a piece of saran wrap and lay it on the table, stretched out nice and flat.
Put the black paper face down on the saran wrap and then tape the extra to the back of the black paper.
Flip it over and glue on the boarder.
The finished X is for X-ray.
