This week we brought out the ribbon dancing rings (home-made from canning jar rings and ribbon) and made harvest crowns. My harvest king had a blast dancing to music and spinning around!
He is very into cooking and wants to help me all the time. Sometimes, instead of letting him cook with me, we bring out all the pots and he pretends to cook all on his own. He even hears me walk into the kitchen and runs yelling, “cook, cook, cook!” We have not let him touch the oven, so is very good about avoiding it and holds his hand out and says “HOT!” when anyone goes near it.
We also brought out the dot – painters again this week and made a habitat for little squirrel! Silly me let him do this the day we were taking 2 year old pictures and his hands were the most beautiful colors of purples, blues and reds!
A new thing this week is the 30 Days to Play Challenge with Hands on: as we grow and The imagination tree. They are hosting a 30 challenge to encourage families to play for 15 uninterrupted minutes every day. We play a lot at this household, so we included the goal of playing together as an entire family as we have so much fun when Papa plays along! There are some great play prompts that have encouraged us to PLAY!!!Here are some pictures from the first week:
