So, here I am today. All the kiddos are napping except Vann. He's playing Super Mario...surprise, surprise! I just downloaded my pics from the past couple of days and I have a lot to share with you. Are you ready??
Our theme last week and this week is Once Upon a Time. We've been reading all kinds of classic stories...Little Red Riding Hood, Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, all of those fun books.
|Yesterday we talked about Humpty Dumpty. So, our craft was to decorate an egg, cut it into a puzzle and put it back together. Here's Vann gluing his puzzle back together.|
|Chayce got this fun little game for Christmas. It's called Think Fun Bug Trails. It's just like dominoes, but with fun colored bugs instead.|
|Chayce, Vann, Mia and I played a game first.|
|Then, the boys played a game by themselves.|
|Today we read the Three Little Pigs. Our craft was to make a house just like the pigs. But I changed it up a bit. Instead of having the kids glue on either straw, sticks or draw bricks on...I let them paint their pigs house. Sounded way more fun!|
|Vann wanted to paint the inside of his cup too.|
|Finishing up the outside. |
After nap we'll put the finishing touches on the pigs houses...a roof, a door and of course you can't forget the pigs!
|Chayce was dying to get his little hands in the paint once he finished his house.|
|Look at that cuteness!|
|Vann was excited about it too!|
|Vann's making his handprints|
When all the kids went down for a nap, Vann and I pulled out this fun little game he got for Christmas. It's called Kanoodle. It starts out easy and gets more difficult as you work through the book.
|You follow the picture in the book. He's doing a level 3 here so, it tells him where to put 9 of the pieces. Then he has to figure out where the other 3 pieces go.|
|This one was pretty easy for him.|
|Onto level 4. Now he places 8 pieces by following the book and then has to figure out where the final 4 go. This one took him a bit longer to figure out.|
|But he got it!|
|And it also has pyramid puzzles...these are a bit tricky.|
|But after some fiddling with the pieces, he figured it out!|
Alrighty, I need to get ready for the kiddos to wake up. Oh, and I need to take some meat out for dinner...oops! Should've done that this morning. Hope you're having a great day!
