Last week was a rainy yucky mess, Yay Spring! :)
So we worked on Rr for the week
First we made Rain.
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.
Every morning they write their names thanks to This page at Kidzone.com.
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!
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
Lets just say it didn't last very long!!!
Thank you Grandma!!
