Hunter is 14 months old
We had a fun week at Tot School this week! Here’s a peek at some of the things we did:
We made a Valentine’s Day sensory bin that included pictures of our family on heart shaped card stock and some fake rose petals.
Hunter loved seeing the pictures of our family! (See original post here.)
Hunter used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make some heart prints. (Original post here.)
Hunter made this cute Valentine that says “I love you to pieces.” (Original post here.)
Hunter is also learning the color red, so we had a red sensory bin. (Original post here.)
I made this so Hunter could practice his fine motor skills. I just put a little hole in the bottom of each spot on the egg carton and put red pipe cleaner through each hole.
He’s not ready to try to put the pipe cleaner in through the holes yet. That was too hard and just made him frustrated. He handed it to me and wanted me to do it.
He did like pulling the pieces out though and worked on it for several minutes (which is a long time in toddler time).
Hunter also colored for the first time this week. He seemed to enjoy it and was very proud of himself once he finally figured out how to do it. (Original post here.)
Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots have been up to this last week.
Hunter made this cute little Valentine’s Day heart:
I ripped up red, pink and purple paper. Then I put glue on the heart and he stuck the pieces on. He really liked doing it and seemed to really understand what he was supposed to do. He was a little upset that he couldn’t be in charge of the glue stick, but other than that he had a lot of fun.
Hunter stuck the “I love you to pieces” heart on and then I brushed mod podge glue over the whole thing to make sure the construction paper would stay on.
Super easy and perfect for the Valentine of his choice
I saw this cute Valentine’s Day Bumble Bee craft over at A Cupcake for the Teacher.
Hailey glued black stripes onto a yellow piece of paper. Once she was done adding the stripes we cut out the oval to make the bumble bee.
Hailey added a face.
She also added arms, legs and wings.
Then she added two hearts that say “Bee mine.”
Hailey also drew this Valentine’s Day cupcake and wrote, “My cupcake has alien eyes and Rudolph’s nose and sprinkles on it.”
We used red paint, a heart shaped cookie cutter, a paper plate and a piece of paper.
I put a very small amount of paint on the paper plate and then stamped the cookie cutter in the paint.
Hunter stamped the cookie cutter onto the paper.
He had to see what it felt like.
Then he wondered what he had all over his hands.
Since Hunter was sitting in his chair at the table, after a few minutes he assumed it was time to eat. This is how he signs for “more.” So, we were done painting and it was time for some lunch.
