Learning Toys…

We were sent this awesome toy(Guidecraft Shape Sorter) for review (and upcoming giveaway) and Krash loves it!!! It’s an awesome Tot School tool!

He still loves his sound puzzles, even though they are way too easy for him now! (in the Amazon carousel below I added one that is similar to ours, as I couldn’t find our exact puzzle)

He always loves when the eggs and spoons come out. We have so much fun with these when we play with them!

A little bit of lacing fun…


Theme…Dinosaurs!!!

I have been planning our dino theme for awhile now in honor of our new favorite show, Dinosaur Train. Both boys LOVE it, so it was time to learn a bit more! K was thrilled to see brand new dinosaur puppets on his trays when he came down for Tot School last Monday morning! My mom got them for him at Costco (recently), just for dino week! We also read a Creation book to talk about how God made dinosaurs. We discussed which day God made them, and talked about this more and more throughout the week.

I got him a dino coloring book from the Dollar Tree, he thought that was cool too ;)

Of course we had tons of cool dino books, his favorites form the week are below in the Amazon carousel. Here he is reading his absolute favorite, Dinosaur, Dinosaur. He loved this book!

He also loved this stereo book (also from Costco recently). The written facts are off in the book (as most are in dino books), but we didn’t read those words ;). He loved pushing the numbers to hear sounds, and we learned the names of all of the dinos. It is a book more for older kids (on one page there’s a dino eating a dead dino), but Krash is into stuff like that so he liked it a lot!

Of course I made him a dinosaur Tot Pack, which will be available for you soon ;), he loved these color matching cards…

We put the colors in a row like a train, he had to find the right “seat” for each character. Then he got his own seat (Ladybug’s Bumbo), and hopped on the train!

He loved spelling his name…

We worked on size sequencing, and 1:1 counting as he fed each dino a pom pom ball ;)

A little Heads n Tails matching (they were hungry too)

He loved the dino felt set/book my mom also got for him!!!


Fall Fun!!

We love talking about Jesus being the light inside of us during the month of October. Therefore we have tons of Jack O Lanterns around. We focus entirely on the idea of God scooping out our yuckies and putting His light inside of us to glow for the world to see. We played a few games with one of our pumpkins…

We had fun talking about body parts as we stuffed pom poms in his face!!!


Life School/Mommy’s Favorites ;)

I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite, so all of his life school pics are my favs this week! They were just all so sweet and bring back great memories from the week! Here Pac Man was reading to Ladybug and K walked up to join in. What a precious sight to a momma, huh?!

As if the above wasn’t sweet enough, here he’s reading the Bible to Ladybug…
you know, upside down. My kid is a genius, yes he is.

Below are shots from my fun day alone with Krash, I played and played with my sweet boy. No housework, no computer, no interruptions…just me, my little guy, and a few people…
yup, just a few ;)
