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.

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.

Continuing with our farm theme, we made a cow this week.
We used a paper plate, various pieces to glue onto the cow and a glue stick. I drew eyes onto the plate ahead of time.
I let Hunter check out the plate, which he thought was a lot of fun.
I put glue on the back of the spots and then let Hunter put them onto the plate. He seemed to like the stickiness.
Then he added the nose/mouth. I added the ears and horns.

Hunter has been learning all about one of his favorite things- farm animals. So today we made a cute little sheep.
Here’s what you’ll need: paper plate, cotton, glue and cut outs for head, legs, tail and eyes.
I let Hunter explore and play with the cotton for a little while. He loved it!
Hailey was off from school for MLK day and so Hunter was showing her his cotton balls. He had so much fun playing with them and of course, throwing them on the floor.
Next I put glue all over the paper plate (I used a glue stick so it wouldn’t be too messy) and I let Hunter check that out. He wasn’t too sure about his hands sticking to the plate.
I showed him how to stick the cotton balls onto the paper plate and then he copied me. He would put a piece on and then use 2 of his fingers to pat it down. It was too cute.
He was having so much fun! I didn’t get a picture, but I put the sheep’s face together and then put glue on the back and let Hunter put it where he wanted it on his plate.
Hailey wanted to make one too, so here she is working on the face for her sheep.
