Snowman Fun

Happy Monday!  Now that we're firmly in January, I thought that a snowman theme would be fitting...especially since we're forcasted to get upto another 6 inches in the next few days.  Munchkin absolutely loves the snow.  Loves wearing his snow suit and boots.  Loves helping Daddy shovel the driveway.  Loves shoveling snow back onto the driveway...  The only thing we haven't done yet is build a snowman.  I'm hoping that this storm will bring some better snowman snow - we've only had the powdery stuff so far this year.  Here are the snow-tivites that we'll be up to this week:

Letter of the Week: S
Crafty, Creative, Sensory Fun:
  • S is for Snow letter craft
  • Marshmallow Snowman collage
  • Snowman paper collage
  • 'Snowball' toss - tossing marshmallows into containers
  • S word recognition
  • Winter/snow themed sensory tub

Happy 2011!

Happy 1st Monday of 2011!  This week Munchkin & I are going to be doing some miscellaneous winter projects and reading a hodge podge of books...yes, hodge podge.  Here's our first tot-tivities of 2011:
Letter of the Week: W
Creative, Crafty, Sensory Fun:
  • W is for Winter letter craft
  • Winter sensory tub (filled with cotton balls, glitter pom poms, foam-ball snowmen
  • Build a snowman felt page
  • Homemade playdough - I've wanted to make this for awhile but somehow never get around to it
  • Car sorting - Munchkin got a car holder for has different sized slots for different sized cars/trucks
  • Glove matching - using the 5 million extra gloves/mittens that we have
It's a hodge podge of a few new Christmas gifts and a few potty ones (yes, we're still working on it)
