Craft Time!!!


This activity was of course Pinterest inspired.  

TUB PAINTING!

The paint was flour, water, and food coloring. Cheap and safe.

She was unsure of the paint at first

But she got the hang of it!
 We did it in the tub so it was easy clean up. 45 mins was spent painting and about 25 was spend splashing in the colored water! 
It turned into body art

Lila Learns Letters

Next weeks starts my the kick off to Hardcore Homemaker Heather. I quit my job of four years to stay home with Lila. This past week I have not been working but I took the time to just relax and sleep and play all the time.

We hung out with friends!

This following week I will work towards being the organized education fun loving mom I WANT to be.
The coloring page I made

We are going to start doing a Letter of the Week with Lila. There is a program at the library we will base this off of but I want to do more!

As Lila grows older we will expand more but this will be good for the 26 weeks.

I am scared to "push" her too much but I am going to try to make it as fun as possible.

Next week we will start with the obvious...A.

We will use our 5 sense to explore each letter. Lila knows her alphabet A-D but she is just repeating the song. I want her to KNOW the alphabet. And if she doesn't get it oh well. We will have fun just trying

Here's a view of some of the projects we will do, videos we will watch, etc!
