Tot School - Letter U is for Up!
Owen and Eli: 43 months old
For the letter U, we read all sorts of books about balloons and hot air balloons. I had taken several others out of the library too, but quickly learned my lesson to 'not judge a book by its cover' when The Purple Balloon's first page read 'Dying isn't easy.' Yikes! I'm not sure my three year olds are ready for the harsh reality of life and death! Needless to say, that one went back to the library pretty quickly!
I thought it would be fun to make our own hot air balloons, so I picked up a couple balloons from the floral department and we created them using yarn, tape and baskets made of construction paper. They really floated!
Owen has been really into color by number lately. He worked on the second picture for almost an hour! This was the point in the week when I realized just how different my twins are... Owen focused and followed the directions, Eli 'made a giant squid to eat all the U's' and then put socks on his hands and feet to 'scuba dive' on the carpet. Crazy kids!
here to see what others were up to this week in Tot School!
