We did a few art projects this week too - always a favorite with the boys! They love playing with glue and paint, so I try to come up with a couple ways to incorporate those every week. This week we made the lowercase Letter of the Week from Totally Tots, but I made up my own capital letter B craft. I liked how the butterflies went together. We also used coffee filters and watercolors to make butterflies and sang The Wheels on the Bus as we made our own buses out of foam paper. I found these coloring sheets of butterflies too.
The ideas that I wanted to use this week if we hadn't run out of time included an activity using ball stickers and matching them to a picture of each kind of ball (football, baseball, soccer ball and basketball). It would have given them a chance to practice matching and identification. I wanted to play indoor basketball using laundry baskets and create a balance beam using tape on the floor to see if they could walk without falling off. I wanted to do more with body parts too, like singing the Hokey Pokey, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes and tracing outlines of their bodies in chalk for them to color. The other art project we didn't get to was using their fingerprints to make bees and their hand prints to make butterflies. I visualized those in my head so there isn't a link to send you to for the idea, but I'm sure you can figure it out too : )
