Summer Preschool Fun

As our summer comes to a close I wanted to wrap up with a post sharing some of the fun activities Ladybug enjoyed this summer.  I threw out any type of homeschooling plan for her and just focused on fun.  We were so busy and going everywhere so having a plan would have stressed me out anyway!  I tried to pull out intentional activities for the kids, here are many Ladybug really enjoyed! We did way more than this, but I went through my photos from the past month or so and this was what I found!

She really enjoyed K’s Cat cards and played with them a lot!  I think she liked them more than he did!

Marble painting {she would do this everyday if I’d let her}…

Which then turned to finger painting

Finally remembered to get the water beads out again, I think she played at the table at least 2-3 hours the first day they were back out! These photos were taken at the beginning, she loves to sit with them as they grow!

She chose many learning activities on her own, I love seeing what she gravitates towards naturally.  Here she was working on ABC order totally spontaneously with the magnetic fish from this set. You can see a little video of her singing ABCs here on Instagram!

I discovered her new favorite hobby, Perler Bead Crafts!  I randomly got them out when I was reorganizing some stuff and she saw them.  I thought she’d last about 5 minutes.  Man, was I WRONG.  She made 4 full crafts in one sitting all by herself!

Begged to do them again the next day and worked for about 2 hours straight!

Saw this idea on Pinterest here and thought it was worth a try!  I got those cute bins at Dollar Tree recently and grabbed some sponges and cut them up.  Add water and she’s happy for an hour {at least}!  Even her biggest brother sat and played with her for almost that long!

It has been a busy summer and I am really ready for a routine to get back in place.  I can tell the kids are too.  I am a bit off my rocker when we are all over the place running around.  I like the peace that homeschooling brings, I enjoy being at home mostly. Looking forward to a new year with my preschooler!
