Our week in TOTSchool

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!


For Open Ended Art Emily created with Feathers, Glue and Paint. Her favorite color is Green so that is the color that she picked to paint with.


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.

Our favorite books from this week:

  • The Turkey Ball ~ David Steinberg
  • Rabbit’s Pajama Party ~ Stuart J. Murphy
  • Let’s Go to the Zoo Little People Board Book ~ Readers Digest
  • Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? ~ Bill Martin Jr.

Hi Michelle

Your weeks are always fun filled and so creative.

It is so sweet to see pictures of Emily and Juliette interacting and enjoying each others company so much.

The Oh Rats game sounds like something that would appeal to my little girl. Sounds like fun.

The suction cup activity is a great idea. And i loved when it eas time to get the saucer out for my kids :)

I agree with everyone that the suction cup idea is so cool. We have some from Walmart that D plays with in the bath. Thanks for the idea for repurposing them. Love it!

I love the picture of Emily and Juliette together. They probably will be best friends as they get older.

I love the idea of using shapes from a shape sorter as a cookie cutter. We might just have to do that this week! Thanks for sharing :-)

OH MY GOSH, Juliette is growing so fast! She looks absolutely precious too. I am trying to hold and enjoy Jesse's baby phase as much as I can b/c it will be gone in a blink! Some days I feel sad about it and other days just so very happy to watch him--does this make sense?

I love your TP turkey!! Emily is such a smart girl and crafty too. You are a wonderful mom and do so many great things with her!
