This month we have been working through a fun theme, Bubbles, Boats, and Floats. The boys have been having such a great time with this theme. I previously shared about our beaver theme and all the fun we had with that. Today I am going to share about some of the fun Duck, Fish, and Alligator themed activities we did.
Our duck hats were so adorable and a fun activity to do. While all the materials were provided by Mother Goose Time as usual, it would be quite easy to adapt it to make your own.
This picture was taken right after Gabe lost both of his front top teeth. It reminds me how quickly he is growing up.
They not only made duck hats, but they made adorable duck families to take care of. Gabe decided to attach his family right onto his hat, so his ducklings could follow him.
Caught A Fish Alive
We learned the Caught A Fish Alive rhyme with the rhyme time poster included in our curriculum this month. After we learned it the boys make a fish on a line. For this activity they took yarn and sewed it onto a fish, then they attached a fishing rod to it (popsicle stick.)
Threading the yarn through the small holes was great fine motor work for the boys. The teachers manual suggests using tweezers to thread the yarn. Since the boys are older I had them just use their fingers, this was more of a challenge for them. I often adjust activities for the boys to make it more difficult for them since they are older then the curriculum suggests.
A Is For Alligator
We have been learning about the letter “A” this month. So Mother Goose Time had us do a fun craft to go along with the letter, an alligator in the shape of an “A” of course. This was a fun activity for the kids to do.
Next week I will be sharing more fun we have had during our Bubbles, Boats, and Floats unit.
This post may be linked up with some of these great linky parties.
