The best part of summer is being outdoors and we have really been taking advantage of the cooler weather. Mommy and Daddy’s electric bill is saying “thank you” to mother nature as well! For some sensory fun the girls enjoyed playing in the dry pool with 175 colorful balls (I don’t know what Santa was thinking sending these our way last Christmas!!)
F0r a cool sensory treat we enjoyed some Dip’N’Dots at the local Zoo these were a big hit and very refreshing after walking around for hours.
Our most recent school highlight was the “Butterfly Release Party” thanks Andi for letting us join in on the fun!! We enjoyed meeting up with our friends each week to watch the caterpillars change form. Some of the books we enjoyed along the way ; The Very Hungry Catepillar, Angelina and the Butterfly (Angelina Ballerina), and Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly.
Pumpkin still has no interest in learning her letters although I have found she does know more of them than once thought. She has really taken a liking to writing and we are working on this daily now. The excitement when she does it correctly is priceless.
We have also started working with some of our Mailbox kits. If you are not familiar with these be sure to check them out…..Pumpkin does really well with them!! A bit more challenging than some file folder games., but learning through play none the less!! Well worth the $$ we got ours at a local teacher store going out of business.
Thanks for visiting out “school” and be sure to check out others doing the same at “Tot-School“.
