Whew...glad the week is over. My youngest son is going through some kind of growth phase and doesn't want to let me out of his sight or reach! But, I still managed to get some crafts done with my older son this week. There isn't any particular theme to them, just fun learning, hands-on activities.
First, we made felt animals. For the fish, I attached it to a plastic ring, tied string to it and then tied it to a pencil. That's his new fishing pole. You could also attach the felt animals to some cardboard with a little stand behind them, like a picture frame. I'll probably make more animals each week to add to the collection.
We also made a fall tree using a toilet-paper roll and paper-punched leaves. My son really enjoys his tree and carries it around with him.
Also, I'm just beginning to introduce him to letter recognition. We brought out our alphabet-train puzzle by Melissa and Doug and we matched up letter cookies to the letter on the train. Of course, he had to match up the letters before getting to eat any cookies! It's kind of hard to see, but there are some cookies on the train in this pic.
We did a few other printable sheets emphasizing circles that I found on Kid Zone's website. And that was our week!
