This weekend we finished up our unit on Letter A. A few fun things we did this weekend:
Libby used a magnetic board and magnets to form letters, shapes, and patterns. She really liked this! I know my picture is blurry, she was moving excitedly.
We had a few friends coming over for fondue Saturday night so Ian and I whipped up a sponge cake while Libby worked with the magnets (magnets and a boy who loves to put small things in his mouth do not mix!). We both enjoyed baking it, don’t mind the batter on my chin 😉
Sunday afternoon we did an Apple craft where we used an apple cut in half as a stamp for painting.
Libby decided to use her fingers and finger paint after stamping with the apple; she enjoyed mixing the colors. Libby really loves to paint, it is one of her favorite things right now. Ian was only interested for a few minutes. I purchased a new kids CD called “Kids in Motion” and Ian is really loving it. I put it on for them to listen to while painting today, and Ian couldn’t sit still, and eventually he abandoned painting to get down and dance.
