Emily is 33 months old.
Emily and Juliette are playing together more and more! Emily was so excited when Daddy put together the excersaucer for Juliette. Juliette LOVED it too!
More of Emily playing with Juliette! She is interacting with her more and more.
Emily enjoyed working with Play-Doh. We used the shapes from a shape sorting toy as cookie cutters.
Emily and I played Oh Rats, a great color matching puzzle game my mom had from when she sold Discovery Toys. Juliette enjoyed watching. Emily’s favorite part was saying “Oh Rats” when we got a color that was already on our puzzle. It made missing a turn not so bad!
For our stART project we made Toilet Paper Tube Turkeys after reading The Turkey Ball, by David Steinberg.
Emily really enjoyed this great fine motor skills practice. She used her training chopsticks to transfer pom poms from one suction cup fish to the other. I got the suction cup fish at Dollar Tree they are the things you would put in the tub to prevent slipping. I was amazed with how much she enjoyed this activity!
We finished our week with Art Group at our house. Emily had two of her friends over to play with play dough, paint with homemade puff paint and make coffee filter turkeys. We also learned a cute new turkey finger play.
