Letter F

We first visited the Fresno Fire Department to kick off our Letter F day.
Our first craft, continued with our "fire" theme. We began with showing them a flame and we let them blow it out maybe a dozen times each. HA! They loved that!
Then, we took tissue paper and we all ripped it to be in small pieces. This was a perfect project for these 2 year olds. They loved ripping the tissue and I think it helped them enjoy the next step even more.
Then, they glued the tissue on their letter f.

Finished product...F is for FIRE!
Then, we made their own fish aquarium.
Pour some water in the bowl...
Add the blue Jello mix...
Stir it all up...
Pour into cups and let it chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
After the Jello has stiffened we let them add the fish to their fish aquarium. Oh, they loved this.
We asked them if their fish smelt "fishy."
Fish Aquarium snack
They LOVED to look at their fish "swimming"

I will finish up the Letter F tomorrow!!
