Tot School ~ Letter M

~Ladybug is currently 37.5 months old~


The items are all available here on the Animal ABCs webpage. {files are released for free when they are posted on the Totally Tots blog for the ABC feature, letter M is not free yet, but it will be once it is posted on Totally Tots!}.

Here are some Letter M and Mouse ideas for you…


She requested finger paint again…IMG_7211


After painting, she requested glitterIMG_7216

Then she asked for colored paint…IMG_7223




She worked with me to make the letter craft, which is basically an open ended project that you can do whatever you want with!  This week I gave her big and little Mm stamps, and she LOVED stamping with me-we took turns!IMG_7197

She tried to cut her letter out by herself!  She eventually gave it to me to finish, but I was thrilled with her determination and desire!IMG_7201

She glues everything by herself now, however she wants!IMG_7208

Special Note: Please read my post about Following the Child’s Lead if you have a tot and need info about this.  All tots are different and what Ladybug is doing may not be appropriate for your child, even if s/he is the same age!


Mickey Mouse Printables

In honor of M is for Mouse week, I made her a Mickey Mouse Printable Pack! I gathered all of her Mickey toys & books and brought them to the schoolroom too!  Notice the kitty hidden in the picture. Winking smile  Silly Stella.IMG_7192

She loved the Mickey Mouse stuff and dove right in and started coloring as soon as she found her notebook! {her purple tray is here, but get it at Michaels if you can, it’s only 4.99 or less with a coupon!}IMG_7108

She loves the graphing game and totally gets it now!IMG_7109

She wanted to color her shapes…IMG_7111


Working on the letter maze…IMG_7240


Tracing letters…IMG_7261


Stacking and nesting cylindersIMG_7119

She told me the skinny ones were her candles and that I needed to sing Happy Birthday to her, so I did.IMG_7126

She played with Perfection multiple times {with the timer off, it scares her!}…IMG_7232

She used the cards from our Design and Drill and laid the screws upside down to make the patterns on the cards.  I was amazed with her patience, she did this a few different times!IMG_7251

Playing with the marble tracks {these are called Frigits, I couldn’t find the set we have on Amazon} her brothers made for her…IMG_7258

Sorting gems in our Mancala game…IMG_7253

Life School

We had a few hot days and enjoyed our {last-summer, popped and a bit dirty} pool! She LOVES to swim and could have cared less about the pool imperfections or the chilly water!IMG_7166

Remember the popsicle she snagged from her biggest brother? She hit her Daddy up too and got over half of his!  Little stinker!IMG_7081  IMG_7085


Here she was playing Alpha Tots-one of our all time favorites.IMG_7239
