Hunter is 16 1/2 months old.
Our focus for Tot School was space and the color orange.
Hunter made an orange tissue paper flower to add to our collection of sun catchers.

We made some simple rocket ships that practiced shapes.

We made some fun aliens.
They turned out cute. (See the full post here.)
My favorite project of all of our space activities was this one. I love how it turned out!! See the full post here and see how great these turned out.
And of course, we made a Mother’s Day craft
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
Sometimes you just need a really easy craft… and this is one of those
All you need is construction paper, scissors and glue.
Cut out some various shapes.
Glue the shapes together
Our completed rocket ships.
Our letter of the week last week was the letter P. Here are some of the activities we did:
We looked through fliers and found things that started with the letter P and Hailey cut them out.
Hailey colored letter P word cards, cut the pictures out and then glued them onto index cards.
We do these for every letter. When it’s all dry I staple it together and make a little book.
I saw a cute P is for Peacock over at No Time for Flashcards. Hailey used her Do-a-Dot markers to decorate the feathers.
The completed P is for Peacock.
Hailey practiced writing the letter P and circled words that started with P.
We made a piano- Hailey drew some lines on a white piece of paper.
She cut some black strips of paper and glued those on.
The completed P is for piano.
We added the letter P to our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree.
Hailey practiced her shapes on this pizza coloring paper.
Then we made a pretend pizza- Hailey painted a paper plate red then added all sorts of toppings.
The finished pizza.
