In other news, summer is upon us and I am wracking my brain to come up with ideas to keep the kids occupied. I came across some things on Pinterest that I have started with the kiddos. Z will be starting Kindergarten in August and, knowing how quickly they can forget things if kids don't keep practising, we continue to work on our letters. I was inspired by this site first which has several art projects centering around letters. We started there. I also came across this site which I actually kind of like better because it's a little easier to navigate in, in my opinion.
Mainly Z and I work on this while little brother is napping but I have actually been able to do some with him too. He is just now becoming interested in doing art projects, where before he could care less (as his preschool teachers can attest). I'll usually let him do some things on the computer while Sister does her letter, then switch.
Fisher Price has some good toddler games here.
Mainly what I have is paper, markers, and glue.
When do kids learn that they don't have to use great gobs of glue??
I am hanging these on the kids doors, at least until I run out of room. Here's Z modeling her letter's. We have the rest of summer to finish.
The round thing above her head is an apple she made from a plate (so, 299 left).
She did this project all by herself.
He also got an apple (298 left).
So, that's what we've been doing with our time. Please share any projects you may be doing! I dug my scrapbooking stuff out so I hope to be able to get that done. And, let me know if you have any suggestions for my dress dilemma!!
