which God prepared in advance for
us to do.

Color changing

I took a Ziploc bag and put blue finger paint on one side and yellow paint on the other side. I sealed it good and gave H a Q~tip to move the paint around. She used her hand as well. We talked about what we thought would happen to the colors when they mixed. Once it was mixed she started to use her fingers and Q~tip to draw and to write letters. she loved practicing writing letters in the bag. We made hand prints and pictures in the bag. Then we talked about if you could see through the bag and if it was translucent, transparent or opaque.Then we talked about examples of things that were all of the different types. She has asked me to do this project over and over.

Painting Fairy Maska

For some fun summer projects I got a couple of crafts at Micheal's. H had a lot of fun painting the fairy. At first she was really focusing on staying in the lines and then she started mixing colors and telling me about the new colors she was making on her fairy. All in all she had a ton of fun and it kept her busy for almost an hour

Making voids

For art/science experiment we took a few objects we found around the house. We used two sponges, and a glove (in the future if I do this again I will not pick objects that absorb water lesson learn by mommy)it still worked but not as nice as I would have liked it too. I added food coloring to water and let her spray the paper. then we removed the objects to see the shape on the paper. before we started we talked about what she thought would happen when she sprayed it, and if the paper would change and how. when she was finished she used to squirt bottle to see how far she could squirt the water. H would stand in one place and squirt the water and try to hit the deck then she would back up to see if she could still hit the deck.

Muffin Tin Monday: the letter B

We did MTM on Sunday night due to a really busy Monday. This week we are going to be focusing on the letter B. My best friend is having a baby boy this week as well so there will be lots of B's this week. For Muffin Tin Monday we had blueberries, teddy grahams 'bears', bananas, buns on our burgers, and broccoli, and all the utensils where blue. I wrote the word of each food item above or below the food so she could see the word that starts with the letter B.

Dance recital

H had her first dance recital this past weekend. It was so adorable. She did so good! for being one of the youngest in the class we were so proud to say she was one of the best. They danced to munchkin land from Wizard of Oz.

Tracing shapes

I recently made a tracing folder for H. I just used clear protector pages and but a dashed line picture of different shapes and the word of the shape under it for word recognition. I let her use a washable marker to trace the shapes and letters of the word that way I can reuse the page over and over. I just learned that tracing is a skill needed for kindergarten so I thought if would be fun to practice.

todays lunch

Today for lunch we had apple sauce, strawberries and quesadilla. H really loved the lunch today so I thought I would share.
