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.
Hunter checking out his orange sensory bin.
He wanted to wear this orange hat.
He kept his hat on and practiced throwing the football into a bowl.
This is Hunter working on making a moon rock. You can see the full post here, to see how we made them.
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.
We also made paper bag aliens. Hunter loved using the do-a-dot markers to decorate his.
Hailey showing the completed aliens. (Full post here.)
We also made UFOs. (Full post here.)
Here are the completed UFOs, hanging from our chandelier.
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
We are having so much fun with our space theme! There are so many ideas out there to try. Our latest project was to make a UFO.
You’ll need 2 paper plates, a paper bowl, glue and anything else you want to use to decorate your UFO.
Hunter and Hailey painting their paper plates.
After painting his bowl, Hunter added some sequence.
Hailey added some glitter.
Once the bowls were dry, I used a brad to attach a string so that we would be able to hang up our UFOs.
I glued the plates together and then glued the bowl on top.

As we continue our ocean theme we learned about crabs today and made a crab. It turned out really cute.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper, tissue paper, glue, wiggly eyes, 2 paper bowls and something to brush the glue on with.
Hailey did a great job tearing up the red tissue paper.
In one bowl mix a little bit of water in with some glue and brush it onto the bottom and sides of the other bowl.
Cover the bottom and sides of the bowl with red tissue paper. You can also do this with paint instead of tissue paper if you’d like to.
While Hailey was busy covering her bowl with tissue paper I cut out a mouth and some legs. There are 8 regular legs and 2 legs with claws. I also cut out some seaweed from the green tissue paper which I forgot to take a picture of.
Glue on the seaweed.
Add the legs.
Turn the bowl covered in tissue paper right side up and put glue all over the rim.
Add eyes and a mouth and you have your finished crab. (Hailey used so much glue that when I took this picture 5 hours after we made the crab- the glue was still wet!)
