Tot School: Camping

Tot School 
The Bug is 27 months old

This past week our theme was camping.  We were still working on the color green, a diamond shape, the letter A and counting 1 to 10.  Our Bible concept was God Created All Things.

We read Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and then The Bug did a sort for day and night animals.  This was his first sort of this kind, and he really enjoyed it!  I printed the sorting page from here.

We did several items from the forest tot book at 2 Teaching Mommies.  The Bug colored several forest scenes in specific colors,

did an animal matching game,

matched heads and tails of animals together,

and dot stamped a letter T for Tent.  He really likes these, and is very careful to make sure each circle gets colored.

We read Duck Tents by Lynne Berry and then we had a pretend campout using his sister's tent and our forest animal puppets.  Finally, he used glue and Qtips to make a picture.  This doesn't relate at all to camping, but they were supplies his sister had out when he woke up from a nap one day.

I had planned to make smores, but couldn't find any gluten-free ones for The Bug to eat.


  1. This looks like a very fun theme! I noticed you have a lefty :)

    He is so adorable! I know it's not the same, but you can dip marshmellows in melted chocolate kind of like having S'MORES.

  2. Thank you for your nice comment! He is my only lefty, so we are learning how to do things the left-handed way together. I will try the marshmallows in chocolate, he would probably love that. Thanks for the idea!

  3. how fun! We started our year with a camping theme and the kids *loved* it.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it!
