Rainbows Return

We had one of our favorite themes again! Rainbows!  I love finding the rainbow crafts. Gives me one more reason to hang out on Pinterest.  

We got this idea on Pinterest from Live Learn Love 226.  I cut everything and Adelyn practiced gluing them.   I put my finger on each spot to show her where to put the glue. 

This was the book we focused on, What Makes a Rainbow 

We got this idea from Child-Development-Guide.  Just tape 6 cue tips together and put paint for each color of the rainbow in a straight line. Dip and paint! 

We did rainbow cookies again! This idea we first saw from our great friend Mollie.  This one sure is a lot of work but we had fun.

Llama Llama Misses Mama- Going to School

Llama Llama Misses Mama

During the week that Adelyn began her new school year in September we read books about school and making new friends. Adelyn fell in love with Anna Dewdney's Llama Llama book about Llama feeling very uncomfortable about being in a new place.  The author also has a great website with activities, puppet characters and coloring pages at this address:

Adelyn and I decided to act out the book with her animals. We happen to have the Llama stuffed animal.  Our Hop on Pop character played Mama and Sylvester the cat was the school teacher. Adelyn loved repeating some of her favorite lines in the book while playing.
