Hunter is 17.5 months old.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I have really been slacking on my blogging. These next few weeks are going to be super busy too! This time of year always seems like there is just so much going on.
Our theme for Tot School was dinosaurs and the color orange.
We made an orange discovery bottle. It’s filled with lots of fun stuff, and as long as I make sure to include some beads so that it makes noise when he shakes it, Hunter is happy.
Hunter used his dinosaurs to make some orange foot prints.
Hunter loved using the dinosaur stamps.
He made an erupting volcano (original post here.)
He enjoyed making dinosaur footprints in some model magic (original post here). This kept his attention for a very long time!
We played a game with some vocabulary words for Hailey. Hunter loved jumping from one dinosaur footprint to another.
Hailey read Hunter some dinosaur books.
One evening while my parents were babysitting they made a ramp out of a pizza box. Hunter thought it was great to drive his cars down the ramp.
One of the reasons I was busy- we went to the ocean… so here is some “real life” tot school:
Hunter experiencing the ocean for the first time.
He loved playing with the sand.
He thought the waves were fun too, as long as they didn’t splash him too much. He called the ocean “bubbles.”
We had a great time and made lots of wonderful memories!!
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.
I know that summer is coming to an end, but I just had to review some of our favorite beach crafts that we did. We had a lot of fun doing a beach theme and here are 2 of the crafts that Hailey made:
A fun seahorse
And this cute hermit crab.
Hailey attended another VBS and I had to share this adorable craft. So cute and fun!!
We finished up our ocean theme by making this cute seahorse.
Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper, tissue paper, glue, shells, glitter, wiggly eye.
Tear the tissue paper into little pieces and then crumple it up.
While your child is busy tearing and crumpling the tissue paper, cut out a seahorse and fin from the construction paper and seaweed from the tissue paper.
Glue on the seaweed and the seahorse.
Add the wiggly eye and the tissue paper to the seahorse.
Outline the fin with glue and then sprinkle with glitter.
Our finished seahorse.
