Having Fun Learning

Our Week Having Fun Learning together!

We started the week with Aunt Patty’s Bridal Shower which we hosted at our house.  Both girls were so well behaved and had such a great time.  Emily enjoyed herself so much she asked me “When can I have a Bridal Shower?”  multiple times throughout the week.  It always made me smile how cute is that :0)  We also went to music, which both girls are now participating in.  Daddy was home during the week to do a special project in the backyard which we are all looking forward to being able to use as the weather gets nicer.

Emily and Daddy made some yummy coleslaw.  Emily loved dumping the ingredients in and mixing everything together!


Aunt Jennifer came over and did some tissue paper art with Emily.  They turned it into a game seeing who could get the tissue into the “sneaky spot” (the corners) first.  It was so cute to hear them both giggling as they were working on this project together.



Emily helped Daddy build our new raised vegetable garden beds.  Now I can’t wait to fill them up with lots of yummy vegetables and herbs!!

We went to Sarah’s house to work on some activities with our friends. IMG_3028

Working on patterns with the big felt board.  Emily did much better with this that the last time we did patterns.  I am excited to try some more activities to practice patterns now.  The felt board was a big hit!!


Sarah made these pintables for the girls to work on.  Here Emily is matching the numbers with the correct number of hearts.


Emily is working on tracing shapes.  Emily identified the shape and then traced them.


I made this roll and color printable for the girls to work on.  It was great practice counting and identifying numerals.


Emily LOVES this duck game.  This is also great practice counting and 1-1 correspondence, plus it is cute and really simple so it is perfect for a 3 year old to be able to play without much frustration.


Emily made a parade with her little people and then was so excited to lay in the middle of it. 


I printed out this bunny letter activity and then put  lowercase letter tiles in a tray and Emily picked a tile and then found the matching uppercase letter on the bunny.  Then she used the bingo marker to stamp it.  She loved this and did all 26 letters and then wanted another one!  She also decided that she wanted to cut it out too.


We made homemade butter, the girls each took turns shaking the heavy cream until it got really thick.  The mommies helped too :0)


Emily loved having the homemade butter on crackers!


We made the letter Rr for Rabbit.


Sarah made some great letter search printables.  Here Emily was pointing out the R


And then she covered it with the bingo dauber.


For our stART project we read Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms and made a Hand Print Blossom Tree.  Emily has been pointing out blossoms everywhere we go it is so cute how excited she get when she sees them.

Juliette is 9 months old.  Right now she is learning all about the world around her by exploring everything she can.  She loves climbing, crawling and cruising around the house and touching EVERYTHING!   She also had her first library class this Friday.  She enjoyed seeing all the other children and listening to different songs and fingerplays.  I loved the one on one time with her too.


Juliette had fun investigating all of Aunt Patty’s Bridal Shower presents. 

IMG_3029Juliette and Braeden are interacting so much more.  They make each other smile and they look for each other when they are on the floor together.   

 IMG_2913 Juliette’s favorite spot is under the dining room table!  She climbs over this bar and slides onto the pillow I put down.  She is so fast it is almost impossible to get a good picture!  I can’t believe how big she is getting :0)

Great week - I especially loved the picture of Emily in the middle of her impressive Little People parade. Anna plays with her Playmobil people a lot now, and it's fun to listen to her stories. The picture of Juliette checking out presents is super cute too.

You have such a great week especailly with all of the activities that you do with your tot school friends!

Thanks so much for linking up to your printables. My little one has been all about the color green just like your daughter and anything having to do with frogs. She wont quite be able to color by number, but I know she will love dotting the numbers!
