Having Fun Learning

Having Fun Learning Together This Week!!!

Emily is 4.5 years old and Juliette is 27months old

Emily and Juliette are really enjoying helping me watch their cousin who is 12 weeks old.  He fits right in with them and both Emily and Juliette look forward to having him come over.  The girls have been keeping busy with lots of different activities while I am with the baby.  They play nicely together and so far it has been working out really well.

The girls liked coloring in a different spot.  I let them bring their papers and markers onto the floor in the living room, the change of location made this activity a little different and they thought it was fun.IMG_0447

Juliette has enjoyed having some quiet time in her room, when I went to check on her she was quietly “reading” her books.  I often find this bookcase completely empty after she has “read” through all of them and left them in a huge pile on the floor!  She is such little bookworm, just like Emily :)

Emily enjoyed dressing up her Snap 'N Style Doll and making up stories to go with them.  This doll is getting ready to be in a wedding!IMG_0454 The highlight of  Emily’s week would have to be getting to use the peeler to help me peel carrots for dinner.IMG_0455

The girls with Grandpa playing Sequence for Kids .  This game is a fun strategy game.  Emily loves playing to block other people, she will block them before putting down her own winning piece.

 IMG_0459 Emily relaxing on the couch working on her Lauri Toys Dot-2-Dot Lacing Enchanted Kingdom cards.  These are lacing cards that have numbers on them like a connect the dots puzzle.  She has to begin at #1 and lace through to the last number in order.

Juliette has really enjoyed building with Duplos she has been creating some really great structures.  Usually she just fills the whole board with one layer, now she is building up to make some tall towers.IMG_0464

After making our Water Color Leaves for our stART project the girls had fun exploring with the liquid watercolors and diffuser paper a little more.

Juliette played Perfection .  She requests this game a couple of times a week.  She does it without the timer and then when she is finished we push the board down set the timer and wait for it to pop up.IMG_0510

Juliette is amazing at Zingo , she has been playing this bingo game almost a year now and every time we play I am amazed at how she seems to barely look at her card yet know exactly what she needs and what I need when we play.  Her favorite part is moving the tile dispenser to show the new tiles.

Hi, I'm visiting from your link on Tot School. We played Zingo this week as well, such a fun game. But I totally forgot about Perfection! I love that game, can't wait to introduce it to my kids :) Thanks!

Looks like a great week! I love when changing a location increases interest (or renews interest) in an activity!
