Tot School ~ Love is in the Air!

~Krash is currently 45 months old~

 Learning Toys

Krash chose to make the birthday cake with his Discovery Toys pattern blocks.  The best part was when we sang Happy Birthday and he “blew” out the candle and I snuck and grabbed the yellow triangle “flame” when he blew it out.  We did this SOO many times!IMG_0414We made sorting towers too… IMG_0425He had a blast all week playing with his Busy Bugs and the Oreo Matching cookies.  He chose to pair these two toys together and was so creative with them!IMG_0280

The best was when the bugs ate the cookies…IMG_0284

Theme

We began our month of LOVE and Krash had fun!  One of the favorite activities was the little mailboxes I got for each of the boys from the $1 section at Target.  I gave them old valentine’s cards and stickers and they wrote notes to each other and played mailman for quite awhile with their mailboxes!  IMG_0322

One of my favorite activities and probably his least favorite {I had to force him to finish}.  I made his name in hearts and he had to match it up.  IMG_0277

Tot Trays

Tot Trays this week also went along with our LOVE theme, since I found a lot of heart items to use!  He had fun poking little foam heart beads onto his wooden heart stick (both from Dollar Tree).

He used his mini tongs (from a bug kit last summer at Target) to put heart shaped erasers into a heart shaped ice cube tray.  I was surprised that he sorted the heart erasers by style on his won!IMG_0234 He sorted red, pink, and white foam hearts…IMG_0237 His only non-themed tray and his favorite!!!  Poking stirring sticks into an empty Greenworks wipes container.  The hole is small so he really had to concentrate and push! {don’t you love his shin guards?}IMG_0271

 

Post SubTitles ABC

We finished!!!!  His final letter project, Zz for zebra!  I am so excited to put these all in a notebook for him to keep!  We will begin with a whole new set of ABC projects next week!

Tiny Tot School Ladybug is all out of sorts right now, probably cutting some major teeth.  She hasn’t been as go-with-the-flow as usual so hasn’t just sat near us for school time ;-).  She has been exploring her block basket a LOT, and loving the many balls and blocks we have (all the Fisher Price baby kind).

Life School

One night when Daddy was gone working, we played games together.  Pac and I taught Krash how to play Gobblet Gobblers {one of our new very favorite games!}…

We also played a little Uno Spin, which was awesome for Krash.  he helps me by finding the color or number match and he is the official spinner! IMG_0266

A little Laurie Berkner action with Ladybug as the centerpiece.  “I’m gonna catch you, you better run…..” IMG_0328

 

 

Moms Favorite

We got over 2 feet of snow and the boys had a blast playing in it!  We’re supposed to get even more this week!  I just love my little man all bundled up!!!IMG_0438fb
