COLORING ROCKS WITH CHALK


On an autumn day, the LO and I would have been painting leaves.  Not today because its winter and there's not a lot of leaves laying around.  So instead, we colored rocks!  

Here she is gathering her rocks (with the Sunshine all covered with chalk!):

And off she goes to color them: 


I wish there were more days like this.

DIY: THANKSGIVING BOOK


This Thanksgiving, I am introducing a new tradition to the LO.  My personal belief is that children remember routine and structure and I want to start a Thanksgiving book that my girls will eventually do every year with the family.  I want this book to teach the LO and her sister about gratitude and being thankful for God's blessings.

TISSUE ROLL CUTTING


Is this not the cutest idea ever? I saw this on pinterest and I just had to do it.  The LO has been working on using scissors for a while now and she is learning how to close and open.

SENSORY BOXES AS A TEACHING TOOL


I love playing sensory boxes with the LO. It's simple to make, super engaging and provides a number of learning opportunities.  For this sensory box, I have uncooked elbow pasta, but you can use anything... sand, salt, pompoms, etc.  Whatever you like really.
