Tot School ~ Sensory Exploration and Sunflower Hand Prints

~Elli is 27 months old ~
Much of our Tot School over the last two weeks have been doing school some of Malachi's preschool activities centered around the letter S. Here is what we have been up to since I last posted.
We have had some beautiful weather and enjoyed a couple trips to the park that is only a half a block away.
Elli loves to swing, slide, climb and hang. She is very brave and adventurous. I guess having 4 older brothers has a little to do with that!
We played "colors" as Elli calls it. We drew on the sidewalk with colored chalk.
We made unleavened bread together one day last week and cut it into butterfly shapes. She loved this, but I had to explain that they were not cookies!
I took these pictures because I thought it was so sweet that she wanted Dylan to play with her. He is explaining that he is reading a book. So, she wanted him to read to her.
Here we are doing some sensory exploration with sand. She loved feeling the sand as she seemed so content and peaceful just running her hands through the sand.
We made a sandpaper S.
And handprint sunflowers.
We did some more activities that I will post with Mali's preschool post soon. Now that the weather is looking like spring is really here, I am excited to do more activities outside. I am also looking forward to doing some fun lessons based on the book A Very Hungry Caterpillar with Elli in the coming weeks.

  1. I love how your son is reading to her and holding the book up for her to see, what a great pic!
    I have a question if you have time to answer. How do you the pictures where you have several photos in one (if that makes sense, lol)?

  2. love that sunflower!! :) too sweet!

  3. Hi Pam, I use Picasa. You can download it for free. It is easy to learn and fun to use!
