TOT SCHOOL - WEEK EIGHTEEN 34 Months

Tot School

We started off our week with Music Class....did a lot of baking...the Letter N... and lots of other fun projects... Unfortunately toward the end of the week both kids got sick....so we had to miss Art Group and Dance Class....


This week: Back by popular demand...by the Mommies... the Yummy Yums... this time I will include the recipe so that others my share in the yumminess of it all.... Heat oven to 400 degrees... meanwhile... unroll Pillsbury pie crust... sprinkle with sugar & cinnamon & a touch of brown sugar....lightly fold up the crust.....place on a baking tray...pinch the ends so that the yumminess does not escape...bake for 20-25 minutes...when the dough starts getting to a light golden brown...take them out...let them cool for a bit...enjoy with coffee or tea .... or juice if you decide to share with your child :)

Ryleigh spooning some sugar onto the crust
Folding up the dough....

This week for Letter N...we did N is for Names. The girls glued their friends and siblings names onto the Letter N...so cute...

Also with the N theme, I printed out the paint dot page from Confessions of a Homeschooler and the girls painted with the bingo markers...
The girls also did some bead lacing...on lanyard. I think they enjoyed it.
It was a great fine motor activity...
The babies waiting for their sisters to be done "playing projects"...
To continue with our N theme, we downloaded from this Nn matching activity from Confessions of a Homeschooler. To add to this activity we cut strips of construction paper, glued it to the Nest page and had the kids sort and glue the appropriate N or n onto each strip.

When Ryleigh was born one of my friends gave me a whole bunch of adorable foam shapes that she had made for bath time. I have re-purposed them for lacing practice. I hole punched them and then we attached lanyard to them...and now they are great lacing practice.
This week was Michelle's Birthday (Happy Birthday Michelle!!!) To help celebrate I had the girls bake Chocolate Cupcakes.
Here the girls are beating the eggs (in the mugs)
Enjoying the cupcakes... YUM!
I had Ryleigh put stickers on a shamrock that I drew...great fine motor practice... she did very well putting them all in order.
Ryleigh, Marc and Braeden fixing household items with their tools....
Braeden practicing his crawling....he didn't go anywhere...
but he did get a chance to show off his thighs... :)

Braeden has been sitting up and has really started enjoying his toys....
it is really cute to watch him interact with his sister.

Braeden playing the piano...one of his favorites!
Recently, Ryleigh planted Forget Me Knots and Strawberries from the Target Dollar Spot...I was surprised to see that they are actually growing... Here she is using a pipet to water them.....Might as well get some fine motor practice in while doing a science activity....
I have been putting some workbook activities in page protectors so that Ryleigh can reuse them over again. I have her use dry erase markers...conveniently the ones that have the eraser attached to the top.. here she is matching colors.
Ryleigh sorting gigantic multi colored and multi shaped buttons by shape
Braeden...helping Marc sort laundry...I'm not sure why only my socks ended up on his head....
