We took a week to review our Letters A, B, C, and D and to do some fun bug activities that we did not get to in the past couple of weeks.
I surprised "M" with these Rag Quilt Letters. She had so much fun hanging them on the rope with her "pretty" clothespins. Now I need to get busy making the rest of the alphabet!!!
Band-Aid Butterflies (or Dragonflies):
I saw this somewhere and cannot remember where or find it again, so if you blogged about this craft before please leave a comment giving yourself credit!
We have had a whole bunch of balls from our ball pit split in half. I have been saving them trying to think of a way to reuse them, and finally came up with this craft. I cut a hole in the center of each half so they could be strung on a rope. I then cut up toilet paper rolls (into approx. 1/2 inch circles) to use as spacers. They alternated stringing a ball half and spacers until their caterpillar reached the length they wanted, and then I tied in the rope to finish it off. These caterpillars have provided for hours of fun. "Boo" even has her own little caterpillar.
