And a Happy Easter to all!
We've finally been unpacking our family photos, so I put our crafts on a different wall this month. I still put a few up high, but he's started requesting they be lower. I've agreed, though I do often have to remind him not to remove them from the wall. Here's the new craft wall.
this blog. We read the book Green Eggs and Ham while eating these green eggs. Now, my son is allergic to real eggs, so we couldn't make a green egg breakfast. What I did was melt white chocolate chips and place dollops of it on waxed paper, and then had my son place green m&ms in the middle for the yolks. He resisted this project at first, but then had a blast and requested Green Eggs and Ham for a bedtime story for several days--and "green eggs" for dessert for, well, he still asks for them, even though they're all gone!
Sela. We used a balloon and gray paint to paint an elephant, with the idea that the balloon would leave a wrinkled pattern resembling elephant skin. It sort of worked (though the wrinkles flattened out as it dried.)
online, which is made entirely of hearts. My son decided to swap the ears and feet, though, so it looks a little strange.
online and hadn't decided whether I wanted to use it for Easter or save it for the letter N, but after we read an Easter book () in which a bunny gives up his basket for a robin to use as a nest, my son declared he wanted to make a nest. So we did, using strips of paper and watered-down glue. Messy!
Sela (I love that my son is old enough to do some projects from her archives) we made sheep from a handprint, cotton balls, and googly eyes.
We also did a new Easter themed sensory bin.
Next week we're going to do the letter "B," which will lead us into lots of baby projects to help our son get used to the idea of a baby coming. Seven weeks and counting!!
Once again I'm linking up at Tot School.
