We made the umbrella out of a coffee filter that they "painted" with food coloring in a bit of water. For the rain they ripped blue tissue paper and crumpled it up.. Totally easy!
Then we made a rainbow rabbit... and it took the nose with pipe cleaners several applications of glue and several DAYS to dry... If I had known it was going to take that long I would have left out the pipe cleaners!
And for our last project of the week we made a Rocket.
This week I added in numbers... We started with number 1 today!
And on a totally random note... I got a huge box of random goodies from my grandmother. Tons of cake decorating items that I can not wait to try out!
She sent a BUNCH of sprinkles which is really awesome because I have a spice rack that I am in LOVE with, but I rarely ever use for spices... In fact the spices in them had gotten old so I tossed them around Christmas with the thought that I would fill the jars up with different sprinkles. Well I never got around to buying more that one package of rainbow colored jimmies and my spice rack just looked sad.. Now that it is mostly full it is a much happier thing!
Makes me want to have a cupcake decorating party now!
She also sent the most awesome cake pan ever!
An orange, pineapple upside down cake pan! yay!
So of course this weekend I HAD to make pineapple upside down cake
Last week we worked on the letter Ss here. So First off we started with
Seeds (I was bad last week and didn't take any pictures of them planting them but just one week later and our flowers are sprouting ) First the girls painted the pots then they got to play with dirt and plant the seeds!
Then a Snake
And last but not least we did some fun finger painting and gluing to make a Shamrock
Because we took advantage of it! We walked over to the playground and spent a good 2 hours there. I love this playground because there is a track right next to it so while the kids got to run around I walked 2 miles on the track! Woohoo :).
I also happened to get some pretty cute pictures!
By the way, maybe it wasn't my smartest decision to go to the park with no jackets, it was 60 degrees out but the wind was pretty chilly.
They had a good day regardless
You've gotta love watching a big brother play with his sister <3
And you are never to big to play on the playground
Trying to get a group shot of 4 kids is always fun!
I do happen to love just how much you can tell they were having fun.
But I did manage to get just one picture of them all looking at the camera.. It's not a perfect picture, but it is fun and shows (I think) that they had a great day!
Yup those are my wild and crazy kids, And like I said I am really glad that yesterday was a good day because today is raining and gross with no signs of letting up!
