Here’s what we did manage to do:
We spent an early morning watching the cement trucks pouring the driveway and sidewalk at the new house across the street. The most interesting part was DEFINITELY when the cement truck got stuck in the mud – tires spinning, mud flying, and another cement truck showing up to tow him out of the mud.
Alex took this picture once the truck was out of the mud. Not bad for a 2 year old!
This was K is for Kite week. Don’t expect much, though – we didn’t accomplish much on our theme this week :(
LeapFrog puzzle about opposites (has a kite on it…what a weak tie-in to our theme, lol!)
Sick Day spent watching countless hours of Curious George and tractor movies
St. Patrick’s Day Fun!
This really was an exciting day for Alex!
We sorted M&Ms by color – and tried really hard not to eat them!
We used the M&Ms to make rainbows with a pot of gold
(from Making Learning Fun)
When our rainbows were complete, we ATE them!
We fingerpainted Paper Plate Shamrocks
We matched Shamrock Letters (Help! I can’t remember what website this is from – maybe Childcareland?!)
We sorted shamrocks by size from Making Learning Fun. (We skipped the medium ones, as Alex really doesn’t care too much for size-sorting.)
We enjoyed Shamrock Shakes
We went on a treasure hunt for leprechaun gold…over and over and over again…
We read LOTS of books, including kite books, leprechaun books, and Gail Gibbons’ St Patricks Day book – which tells the TRUE story of St. Patrick’s missionary work
We took LOTS of walks & enjoyed the beautiful weather!
