Week 5

8 Feb

I am a little bit behind with my weekly posts, but I did take lots of pictures this week!

Here is the link to my 365 Days of Unplugged Play.

Day 29 – Valentine’s Day is coming up and Annaliese got invited to her first party.  Today we made Valentines for her friends.   I gave her paint and paintbrushes.  We even tried out an idea I saw online where you crush a toilet paper tube into the shape of a heart and use it as a stamp.  She really like the painting and was surprisingly not messy at the end.

Day 30 – Chris had to buy a bucket from Home Depot so that inspired our play today.  Annaliese was so curious about the bucket so she was the guide.  She liked crawling in and out of it and being carried around in it.

Day 31 – Today we did some good old fashioned puzzles.  It has been a while since we’ve played with our wooden puzzles and I was blown away by how good Annaliese was.  She really understood how to match the shapes to their correct places.  She even did the sign for ‘more’ because she wanted me to keep bringing out more puzzles.

Day 32 – Today’s activity comes with a warning.  It definitely requires adult supervision at all times.  We played with our coin jar and coins.  Annaliese really liked the sound that the coins made when they dropped in.  It seemed like a good activity for building fine motor skills because she really had to work to get those coins in the slot.  I realized that coins could easily be swallowed by little ones so use this activity at your discretion.

Day 33 – Because Annaliese loves to help and loves to be outside, she got to help pick up sticks in the backyard today.  We had some strong winds a few days prior so there were many sticks to be collected.  We bundled up and took as many sticks as we could back to the woods.

Day 34 – Today’s activity came from a Busy Bag party we attended in January.  One of the moms brought a snow day kit and we had about an inch or two of snow.  The kit had food coloring and squirt bottles, so Annaliese and I “colored” the snow.  We both enjoyed it.  Thanks Melissa D!

Day 35 – Today we pretended to be ballerinas.  Annaliese has been able to pretend lately which is pretty cool to see.  She likes to walk on her tip toes so I taught her a few ballet moves (its been a while…I’m a little rusty).  She even got to wear a Tu-tu.  Luckily I was able to pry it off of her before we had to go out.

    I love the bucket play and the image in my mind of her being carried in it. Reminds
    me of a little guy who liked to sit like that in a box.

      He still sometimes sits in a box if he can make it work…
