You can tell it was a popular one because it’s well loved (lots of taped pages). 😉 And it was no different for A. He loves this book! That got me to thinking about the fun felt pages I made to go with The Very Hungry Caterpillar. What if we made some felt snowmen? So I got to work…
Spring break is over & I’ve hardly done any sort of school with Boozle since January. Honestly, I don’t know what happened in that car accident, it’s just been hard to get back into my groove. ANY ways, it’s not like we did “school”. We just made gloop. And he was SO happy. 🙂
He wanted to dump all of his bears & sea creatures in there right away. And yes, he asked me to tint it pink. 🙂
Pure joy as he watches the gloop drizzle off one of the bears. Can you tell he helped mixed the gloop?
There’s no specific recipe for gloop: 1 part water, 1 part corn starch. I kept adding corn starch until it was the consistency that I wanted. So simple, yet so fun.
I’m not the only one who’s been crazy busy, right? It’s been so hard to attempt blogging with the busyness of the season. But, I have some time right now so I want to share with you some things that we have been doing. And such fun stuff this time of year! Again… lots of pictures. 🙂
We are back with another Invitation to Play from our home. I’m amazed at the amount of skills you can work on with one Invitation to Play tray. And these are skills that I did not plan ahead of time. I simply looked at things that I thought would be fun to set out for my little guy to play with. And he sure did have fun this time. Here’s the tray…
I know I’ve said this before, but I love invitations to play. I just love seeing what a child will come up with when presented with a chosen handful of things to play with. I love seeing how their brains work without my example of how you should play with said items. Explore, create, learn… love it. 🙂
It all started with this blog post. A saw me looking at it and said he wanted to do that. However, I couldn’t find any golf tees around the house. That’s not true. I found one. Needless to say, the activity had to wait until I could go get some.
And the Styrofoam? I actually couldn’t imagine what it would be like to have to listen to him poking golf tees into it. It makes my teeth ache just thinking about it. WHY IS THAT??? ANYONE??? So instead of Styrofoam I went for…
Play dough! Actually, A asked me to make some play dough. And don’t think I’m all that, it’s super easy to make your own. (Recipe to follow.)
Here’s the tray I set out… (Be forewarned that there are a lot of pictures.) 😉
I believe that someone is missing his brothers this week. He had them home for 2 weeks & tried to monopolize as much of their time as he could. Now he’s stuck with me. 😉 His sister’s here, but she has a lot more school work this year than she had last year. However, we have plenty of things to keep him busy.
Aaron & I have really been enjoying some sensory play during the days. So when I came across this pin on Pinterest, I knew we had to give it a try.
The problem was that he saw me looking at the pin & wanted to play before I could check to see if we had ingredients to make it! I had exactly one envelope of Knox Gelatin in my cupboard & lots of Kool Aid. So I mixed the Gelatin with 1 cup of really hot tap water, added the Kool Aid & mixed in another cup & a half of water. Then we put it in the fridge & waited expectantly to see if it would turn out. It did!
