It has rained here every day for more than a week now. That has really limited our outside playtime and is giving M and I both cabin fever!
This was week two of our apple theme. First, we did a sensory activity where I placed an apple, an orange, a ball and a potato inside a bag. M had to try and draw the apple (or whatever I asked for that turn) out without looking. At first, she was selecting based on shape and had trouble getting the right one. Gradually she learned how each one felt and was able to get them all by the end!
We also filled M's water table with fall leaves for a fun sensory activity this week.
We finished several projects we had started last week. Our handprint apple tree (similar to the one we did for Chicka Chicka week) was fun as M always love painting her hands. We made the apples by dipping a pencil eraser in our paint and dabbing with it.
Next, we cut open an apple crosswise, looked at the star inside, and then made apple prints.
We made a paper bag apple (this idea came from Cider and Faun via The Crafty Crow). M loved painting the bag on this one, and took a long time to try and get it all red. (I did give her a wide brush to use.)
We also counted apple seeds, bobbed for apple slices, and taste tested three different types of apples, but I didn't get photos of those activities this week.
M and Daddy made some playdough shapes this week.
J took M onto the laptop to play on Starfall for the first time. She loved it!
That was our week in Tot School. To see what other's are doing in Tot School, go to 1+1+1=1.
