Tot School

Tot School

C is 23 months
This is her last week as a 1 year old!

This week we learned about the letter V
I thought I would introduce an eye dropper activity. I gave her colored water to transfer in to different sized Vases. She didn't really get it, she tried to use it like a spoon. So maybe will try this again in a few months.  She still thought it was neat when I did it though.

Wore her Vest (for a short time which was odd since she usually loves wearing it) while sipping a Very Berry Smoothie

I helped her find Vegetables in a seed catalog and I cut them out. We worked together to glue them on paper and I cut out the letter V shape.

We also :
Picked tulips to put in a Vase
Read many, many books. C & J were given some new books last weekend from my BIL's girlfriend as a gift and 2 happened to go along with the "V" theme. Violet's House and If I were a Giraffe (one page says "my ears would be Velvety"). We also checked out It's V! from the library. We also read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the Very Busy Spider.

I realize now that we didn't do an art project to hang on her ABC project wall. Maybe we will do one like the 2nd idea on this site later this week

Earth Day
I helped her glue pieces of tissue paper on an old Danimals bottle to make a Vase. I put on a coat of Mod Podge to finish it. 

Later we went out to collect "flowers" to put in the vase.
She colored a coffee filter with blue and green markers. Then we took a water spray bottle and sprayed water on it and let the colors spread to make an Earth. I don't have a final picture of it.

Other Acitivities
Painted with watercolors
I found these foam numbers in my collection and she really wanted to play with them. She had fun naming them and sorting by either color or number.


  1. Look how sweet she is arranging the flowers in her vase. Precious!
