Back in October, Hailey had her 9th birthday. 9 sounds so very grown up to me… Anyway, she wanted to have a spa/slumber party for her birthday.
Rich hung up some lights in our family room, and I hung up some spa decorations.
This is actually a table, made to look like a bed for all of the junk food and goodies at the party.
The yummy cupcakes
This was a Pinterest idea that didn’t quite turn out… hahaha… We used marshmallows and tootsie rolls- it was supposed to look like bottles of nail polish, which I suppose it does. Just not quite the same as what we saw on Pinterest.
Hailey all ready for her party, waiting for her guests to arrive.
One of the crafts the girls did- they painted and decorated their initial. The little purses on the table were their favor bags.
It was a super fun night full of nail polish, make up, mud masks, movie watching, giggling, eating junk food, and staying up very late!
We had a fun New Years Eve celebration at home. My parents came for the party and we ate lots of food and played games.
The evening started out with 3 wide awake kids, ready for a fun filled evening.
But who would still be awake at midnight…
Around 8:30 it was just Hunter and Hailey left.
They both made it until midnight, although Hunter just barely made it.
Happy New Year!
Back in October, during Fire Safety, week we did a unit all about fire safety and the letter F.
We used this book, No Dragons for Tea by Jean Pendziwol. I had never read this book before and we loved it! It was such a perfect story to teach about fire safety and what to do if there is a fire.
Hunter loves using these do-a-dot markers, so we usually do one of these letter worksheets with each letter.
Hunter glued red, yellow, and orange pieces of paper onto a letter F to look like fire.
Hunter colored firetrucks different colors, according to the color word.
Hunter worked in a Fireman counting book- he counted the different items and then circled the number that corresponded.
We learned about Stop, Drop, and Roll and then Hunter colored a paper about it.
I made some pretend flames and laminated them. I also wrote numbers on them to practice identifying numbers. Then I covered a spray bottle with red tape and made it look like a fire extinguisher. Hunter loved spraying the flames!
Hunter made a little fireman hat.
I made this cute firetruck with our co-op preschool class. This is Hunter’s firetruck.
Hunter mixed together yellow and red paint on a flame shaped paper. He was very impressed to see it turn orange.
Then we practiced saying- Don’t hide! Go outside!
And of course, we went on a field trip to a fire station.
It was super fun week!
