School Daze... we have made it to Zz!

Ryleigh is 47 Months and Braeden is 20 Months

This week both classes dyed Easter Eggs... here are some other highlights from the week:

Last weekend we bought a second hand train table...which came with some tracks and a few Thomas trains...best.investment.ever..... kids of all ages love this table...and Braeden and Ryleigh play with it for hours every day...(granted it is still "new" to them)...
I had the kids color their eggs with crayons before dipping them in the dye...to create some fun designs... surprisingly...there were NO incidents with this project...(in either class)...

Braeden....wondering why I want him to draw on an egg... he spent the rest of the day trying to get into the refrigerator to color more...
TSB finished eggs...so pretty!!!
The girls took turns finding the alphabet bean bags in order....
....and creating an alphabet train with them...
With white crayon, I drew Easter pictures on cardstock...then had the girls use watercolors to uncover the "message"...
Ryleigh was so diligent in painting the whole page...she loves when we do these types of projects...and finding out what the "secret" message is...
Ryleigh working on her alpha book...
This week we listened to the Easter story while using resurrection eggs....
The girls loved opening the eggs to see what was inside...
I made these color by number flower printables...(and the April Showers one too)
The girls worked on some graphing while their eggs colored....
Ryleigh's finished egg....I love these bunny egg spoon things...they totally cut down on the mess...and make it much easier for the kids to use...
More train table fun.... hopefully this table holds its appeal on week 2.... because week 1 has been amazing!
We did "z" is for zoo! ....
