Tot School

Tot School
C is 22 Months

I definitely could not have done this week's activities without the help of my sister who spent most of her Spring Break with us. Little Miss J has decided she doesn't like the Moby wrap anymore, so my hands weren't always free.

It also looks like we did way more than we actually got accomplished. And I had way more planned that we never got to.

This week we learned about the Letter R - I was going to focus on rainbows (and the colors in the rainbow) and rabbits. This is what I got to...

I got out the mini pony tail holder for C to sort on her fingers. 
and on her toes :)

We tried to find all the red toys we could and put them in her tub

She wanted to play with all the sandbox letters
(I was going to put these in some rice, but we didn't have any rice and I never made it to the store)
Painted using a cookie cutter letter R using rainbow colors

Put rainbow and rabbit stickers on the letter R

played the heads and tails matching game from the Brown Bear Tot Pack

I colored a rainbow and put a piece of clear contact paper, sticky side up, over the top. C had to put tissue paper that matched the colors. She did the red mostly by herself, but I helped with the rest. 
It is displayed in our kitchen window where C has a perfect view of it from her high chair. She says all the colors while she eats :)

A favorite from this week was working on the round puzzles
(i got them at a garage sale for 25 cents a few years ago!)
