We started "preschool" at home this week. (Click here to see what we are using for school.) Ori and Calla are loving preschool, and I am too. Love teaching my kids!
'A' is the letter of the week.
These alligator sticks we made the previous week fit in perfectly as a little "extra".
First, we went on a nature walk through the forest and collected sticks that looked like alligators.
After the nature walk/play time, Ori and Calla came inside and painted the sticks green.
Ori simply wanted to paint the tops of the alligator sticks, but Calla meticulously made sure that every piece of stick was painted green. I was shocked by her attention to detail. We added some googly eyes and let them dry. So fun!
Guess who else has been painting sticks?
I about died when I found these pictures last Friday of Katee painting popsicle sticks in China. They are such a treasure.
I also cannot tell you how thrilled I am to see paint all over her little fingers--at 15 months! She's ready to be part of our family! :)
I love, love, love to see my three children painting in the same blog post. Come home, Katee Qing! It will be such a joy to have you making messes and painting with us at our kitchen table.
