Tot School Tuesday - Letters A-D and Bug Review

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!

Caterpillar Craft:
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.

What a great way to reuse those split balls! I'll have to remember to save ours....they split all the time.
