But first she had a new outfit . . .
a dolphin balloon . . .
a few surprises . . .
and made everyone wear party hats.
The whole project took me about 10 minutes to do, and I think we are going to have a lot of fun with them. M was already asking to play with them when they were on the counter drying, so I know they have captured her interest as well.
This week in Tot School we finished up our western theme. We spent the last three weeks working on cowgirls, horses and cows since M was enjoying it so much. You can see my previous post here for other activities we did.
M used a wrapping paper tube, a horse head cut out of paper and some brown yarn to make a stick horse. She rode it around the house, and we had "barrel races" around the furniture as well. (It has been pouring rain the last two weeks so we had lots of indoor play.)
We colored a cowgirl hat, attached it to a paper headband, and M was a cowgirl. Of course, she dictated it be purple and pink.
We also took a family field trip to the Dallas World Aquarium since Daddy had Monday off of work. The aquarium is set up like a rainforest, and so has birds, monkeys, jaguars and other rainforest animals as well as the fish, manatees, alligators and otters.
