Learning Toys/Trays…

I was shocked and amazed when Krash asked to do Perler Beads and proceeded to complete the entire heart by himself (with a few *fixed* by Mommy). It is now waiting to be wrapped up as a wonderful hand made Christmas gift for some special family member! IMG_6006 copy

He continues to love his latches board…IMG_5756 copy

This awesome shape truck is from Ikea, he loves it!IMG_5759 copy

Fun with our letter puzzles (cheap-o from Ross last year)… IMG_5774 copy

Krash chose these markers (both sets) from the weekly treat basket (a part of Accountable Kids ~ which I am trying to find time to write a post about, but in short we love it), he drew TONS this week…IMG_5754 copy


Of course Jolanthe visiting was a HUGE excitement for Krash, he LOVED her! She showed him patterns on his Unifex cubes…IMG_5779 copy

…and sang songs with him while he played with his instruments. I believe the wipers are going swish-swish-swish IMG_5768 copyIMG_5781 copy

He noticed me working on this puzzle with Pac Man and insisted in doing it too. It took a tad bit longer to do it with Krash 😉IMG_5869 copy

Pac Man took an impromptu trip to the library with Daddy and came home with a few surprise books for K, I caught him like this as he read to himself…IMG_5972 copy

Noah’s Ark continues to be a big deal around here, he LOVES this hand made toy and has played with it for hours this week!IMG_5986 copy




Our letter was Tt, so we made trains, inspired from here.IMG_5882 copy

He also dot-painted a T is for Turtle, which we got from Confessions of a Homeschooler!IMG_5763 copy


iTouch Learning Fun…

We love Shape Builder! Krash plays this one a lot and I love it too, it is great for visual discrimination, fine motor skills, and also teaches great vocabulary! He is given a white shape with random puzzle pieces to drag to the correct spot. Once the pieces are all in, the image appears (see photo on right for the letter I for insect). It then says the word and often *does* something cute. You can see this and other apps we love here on our website!

Life {FUN} School…

Krash got to make some new friends and explore the great outdoors all in one day! He absolutely LOVED Miss Jill’s house and all of her children! He got to do many of his favorite things, like play hide n seek…4116343870_4688c209f0_o copy4123527066_e2e83fb33b_b copy
