What We Did This Week

Pinky is 5 years, Chaos is 35 months, Wild One is 14 months

The kids were all sort of under the weather this week so we took it easy on activities. Here are a few of the highlights of what we did.

Surprise Buckets
I put surprise objects in 3 tupperware containers and lightly placed the lids on top. Wild One had a good time taking off the lids and discovering what was inside (a taggie blanket, a stuffed frog, and an egg shaker). She repeated the game over and over, stacked the containers and eventually started putting her own things inside.

Pipe Cleaner Manipulative
I found this great idea on The Imagination Tree. With just a few pipe cleaners and our colander all the kids spent a good deal of time rearranging and working on their fine motor skills (and wearing it as a hat too!).

Wikki Stix
We also played with Wikki Stix this week. I printed out some of the play doh alphabet and spelling mats from Homeschool Creations for the kids to use. I put each printed sheet in a page protector so that we could get a lot of use out of them. The kids had fun both using the sheets and making their own creations. (Don't be afraid to cut your Wikki Stix into different sizes - it makes for more interesting building and creating!)

We had a lot more planned, but with the kids being sick, we spent a lot of time just snuggling and watching movies together.

Can you guess what we have in store for next week though? (I'll give you a hint...March 2nd is the birthday of a great author...)

We will also be focusing on Dr. Seuss next week! I'm really excited for some Seuss inspired crafts and a Seuss inspired tot pack I just created focusing on shapes, colors, numbers and matching! Check us out at BeeSchool. I'm very interested to look through your blog and see some of the other things you've done. : )

I've been eyeing those Wikki Stix, but haven't bought any yet. Maybe I'll have to try them out finally.
