Tot School

Tot School

Hunter is 19.5 months old.

Well, several weeks have gotten away from me again without a Tot School post.  That’s what summer vacation will do to ya!  Anyway, here is what Hunter did over the last few weeks.

Tot School

 Our color for the month of July was purple, so Hunter got to use the do-a-dot markers and make a purple picture.  I definitely slacked in the color teaching department though and we didn’t do very many purple related activities.

Our theme during the month of July was ocean/beach.  Here are some of the projects we made:

Whale Craft

Hunter painted a whale.

The whales turned out cute!  You can see the whole post here.

Popsicle Stick Fish

He painted some popsicle sticks to make a fish.

Next we made jellyfish, and Hunter had fun painting his paper bowl.

I turned around for a few seconds…

and Hunter had fun painting his face.

I guess he wanted to make sure I knew how the paint got there.

Jellyfish Craft

Our completed Jellyfish- see the whole post here.

Dolphin Unit Snack

We made a fish craft snack, which Hunter ate before I could take a picture of it :-)

Here are the ones that Hailey and I made- they were cute and yummy.

Dolphin Unit Craft

Hunter loves when we do activities and crafts.  When he sees me getting things out, preparing to make something, he has to look and see what I’m doing.  Then he’ll say, “Paint” and “Coat,” which is what he calls his smock.

Dolphin Unit Craft

Fish Aquarium Craft

Hunter loved feeling the stickiness of the contact paper for our Fish Aquariums.

Bee Crafty Kids- Jellyfish Craft

26
Jul

Welcome back to the Bee Crafty Kids link up that I am co-hosting with To The Moon and Back, Look! We’re Learning and Monster’s Ed Homeschooling Academy.

I can not believe that it’s already Friday again.  We have been so busy the last couple of weeks that we haven’t done very many activities, which is why I haven’t been posting much.  But here it is Friday again, so here is what we made for Bee Crafty Kids this week.

Jellyfish Craft

We are still learning about the ocean, so we made some jellyfish.

Jellyfish Craft

Here’s what you’ll need:
paper bowls
paint
something to paint with
tissue paper
double sided tape
fishing line

Jellyfish Craft

Paint the paper bowls- Hailey decided to mix her colored paint with white paint to lighten up the colors.

Jellyfish Craft

Hunter took the painting very seriously.

Jellyfish Craft

Once the paint is dry, add some spots.

Then I turned away for a few seconds and turned back to see this:

Jellyfish Craft

You can’t see it very well, but there is paint on his other cheek too.

Jellyfish Craft

Once the paint is dry, put some fishing line through the center of the bowl.  I tied a knot and used tape to reinforce it.

Jellyfish Craft

Cut the tissue paper into strips, then use the the double sided tape to stick them to the inside of the bowl.

Tot School

Hunter is 16 1/2 months old.

These weeks need to stop flying by so quickly, it seems like I just did a Tot School post, but here I am again doing another one.  This week we started a new color- orange, and continued our space theme.

Tot School

He wanted to wear this orange hat.

He kept his hat on and practiced throwing the football into a bowl.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

This is Hunter working on making a moon rock.  You can see the full post here, to see how we made them.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Our completed moon rocks, which I think turned out really great!  Hunter has enjoyed playing with his rock all week.  It didn’t hold up too well when he put it in his water table, but the water certainly looked nice and glittery.

Alien Puppet

We also made paper bag aliens.  Hunter loved using the do-a-dot markers to decorate his.
