Tot School ~ Letter Pp

~Ladybug is currently 28 months old~

Still off of official school around here, we officially start back on Sept 12, after our kick off the school year trip to the beach with my parents the week before!


Tot School Printables P is for Pencil

Letter: Pp

Object: Pencil

Vocabulary Development Theme: School Tools

You can find the printables for this unit here on the Tot School Printables webpage.

Ladybug has not been as into her Tot School Printables as she used to be, so we don’t spend the hours at the table these days.  Totally fine with me, I love her learning any way she chooses at this stage!  I still offer her the printables and she lets me know what she wants to do.  We aren’t doing everything and that’s fine!

Here we used play doh to make her Pps and used a pencil to poke into the dough.



She wanted me to color her Pp objects, as she told me which ones to color.  She proudly displayed “her” work when I was done.IMG_1228


She wanted to cut her tracing page this week.  Hey…whatever floats your boat girlfriend.  She was whining at me for taking her picture {he he}.IMG_1230


I also colored her pencils and we matched up the markers and happily knocked them all down!IMG_1232


We put painters tape on a white paper and had fun dot painting it like crazy!IMG_1075

The boys wanted to help too!  After it was done we let it dry and then peeled off the tape for the letter P, she liked this!IMG_1079

We made all sorts of things with our pop beadsIMG_1254


She loves our new Magnetic Matching Rings toy, it is more for Krash, but she is LOVING it!  This is a really neat toy, if you have a 2-5 year old I definitely recommend adding this to your wish list!IMG_1259

ThemeWe had our schoolroom decked out for our camping theme this week, complete with our mini tent, ladybug sleeping bag, lanterns, flashlights and camping chair!  Most of the camping school work that was done was from the Camping Preschool Pack and the Camping Pack…for Krash.  But Ladybug enjoyed the many props we had out!IMG_1051

We spent TONS of time roll playing and enjoyed an official camp-out morning.  We made fire wood out of tubes and put our electric flickering candles underneath for the fire.  We also roasted wadded up paper marshmallows.IMG_1066

We even had a fake crackling fire running on the iPad!IMG_1069

We are going to a camp for our summer staff retreat next week, so the timing was perfect!  I have lots more to share about our camping fun, coming soon!  You can see my collection of camping ideas I found here on Pinterest!


tub of funI bought the kids a Mighty World Camping set to play with and they loved it more than I thought they would!  It is really tiny so perfect for a sensory bin.  Add it to some beans = hours of fun!IMG_1202

Ladybug was quite possessive and would take the tent and campers and go play by herself sometimes!IMG_1203


Life School

I caught her reading in our bean bag chair, which she often does.  I love reading photos and will grab my camera if it’s close by.IMG_1244

This is her “no-pichers momma” look.IMG_1248
