Our Week Having Fun Learning Together!!!
Emily is 47 months old and Juliette is 18 months old
This week we played a lot of games. Both Emily and Juliette are still enjoying all the new toys that we received for Christmas. Juliette is joining in on a lot of the activities we do now. She loves reading books and playing with Emily and we are able to do a lot more now.
Emily and Juliette worked on an Open Ended Silver and Blue Collages during our Art Group
I put glue on the paper for Juliette and she covered it with the different collage pieces. Emily worked on her collage all by herself. She really liked these Crayola Twistables Slick Stix. They are really creamy and glide across the paper.
Our Winter Sensory Tub has been a big hit all week. There had been a lot of practice tonging, scooping, filling and dumping.
Emily working on her Care Bear workbook. She matched the opposites, circled which had fewer and which had more. She also practiced listening to directions.
We also had a lot of fun dancing around with them. Check this post for the fun action song we sang!
Juliette loves pushing the pegs out of the Melissa & Doug Sort and Snap Color Match . She puts the pieces in and then flips it over and pushes them out.
Emily and Juliette both love playing Zingo . We have played it almost every day this week. I was shocked when I realized that Juliette is actually playing the game. I originally had her on my lap and figured I would just let her help me put the tiles on the card. To my surprise, when a tile came out that I needed she grabbed it before me! You would think it was a coincidence, but she continued to do it. She would get so excited when a tile came out that she needed. It was even more amazing that she does not even seem to be looking at her card and studying it. I love that we have a game that all 4 of us can really play together!!
We got our nephew a remote control car for his birthday and Emily, Juliette and Daddy had a great time playing with it. (Yes, that is my nephew in the bottom right hand corner playing with Emily’s Camera, while the girls take over his car!)
Emily and her cousin played Trouble. This game is great for number recognition, counting and one-to-one correspondence. Both kids really enjoyed playing it…the pop-o-matic bubble definitely makes it a lot of fun to play!
