Oh, it is SO nice to be back to regular school, I am loving it!!  Ladybug is so much more go-with-the-flow now.  Even a big change since just the weeks before we went to the beach.  She is definitely still very opinionated and dramatic but she hangs out and plays so much better these days!

Here’s a peek at which Letter Q activities she wanted to do…

Gluing shapes…IMG_2862

Stamping lettersIMG_2912Dot painting lettersIMG_2813Coloring her queens, for a little while,IMG_3002Then watching as Krash finished them for her…IMG_3010Dot painting letters on the queen…IMG_3021more dot painting {she chose orange every time!}IMG_3031

We put tape on our white paper to dot paint a Q but she was way more interested in stacking the dot-paint tops.IMG_3132

Squeezing the play doh that I had planned to make Q’s out of.  IMG_3134

Instead we rolled snakes to lay on her tracing page.IMG_3139

Poking the snakes…IMG_3141

I decided to try to lay her work out on trays like this, along with her toys and other items.  She didn’t seem to care one way or the other, but it helped me see what she hadn’t done.  I am lucky-she doesn’t mess with them unless it is school time.IMG_2711

By FAR, the most played with toy this week was our foam blocks.IMG_2909

They came out every day.IMG_2717

Many times per day.IMG_2756

She built by herself more than ever, and told me all about her buildings! I got the tongs you see while we were at the beach.  There is a mid size and also a tiny pair, I couldn’t find them online, but check Kitchen Collection or The Gourmet Chef if you have either near you.  They are so cool!  She used them so much and I caught her cleaning up the blocks with them!

Knowing how much the kids were enjoying them, I made up a quick game for them.  I set up the cylinders on the steps and assigned Krash 2 color and Ladybug one color.IMG_3082

They had to hold the block in their tongs and run to set it upright on the stool in the back.  The giggles  were AWESOME!!!  You can see Pac in the background doing his schoolwork, he loved sneaking a peek at them!

Ladybug was so good at the game, it shows me how “old” she is!  It was so much fun to watch, I am sure we will be playing the tong game again soon!

The 2nd most played with toy this week was the drawer full of Mr. Potato Heads.  Ladybug built SO many funny creatures!IMG_2805

Magneatos were out several times…IMG_2878


Theme_thumb3We had our schoolroom decked out for our pirate theme this week!  Ladybug enjoyed the many props we had out ~ although the theme was specifically for Krash! Her favorite part of pirate week has definitely been the pirate books, and the pirate sensory bin.



tub-of-fun_thumb2The pirate sensory bin was out every day and we used the contents to work on various activities.IMG_2745

Ladybug loved the little black marbles and gathered them all…IMG_2747
