Letter F...Finished!

Visiting the fire department, making the letter f with "fire" tissue, and creating their own fish aquarium were all big hits among our two little ones. However, they were even bigger fans the of the rest of what we had planned for that day. This is probably because it involved being outside and eating food. :)

For our next fun activity, we made Foot prints! They helped pour the paint onto the plate. We started with painting their feet.We quickly found it to be more productive to just put their feet directly in the paint (especially when they were wanting to do it more, more, more)! Then, they ran, ran, ran along the paper. Oh, they loved it! Andrea and I are going to use the footprint paper for wrapping paper! I can't wait to see it all wrapped up with a cute bow. So fun!

The next activity, we have done before with the Letter D, except this time we used a different texture. We used beans rather than dirt. (In case you try this one, I would recommend doing it on cement where you can just sweep up the beans that fall to the floor. We did it on the grass and it was quite difficult to clean up.) Aubrey Rose and Christopher LOVED this activity again!
Their goal was to Find things that began with the Letter F. (The little objects in the small part of the table is what they had already found.) Fish, Four, fence, fox, fork, feather, the letter F and more were all hidden for them to find.
Aubrey Rose was waving the feather she found in the air.
Oh, they entertained themselves for quite awhile. And made quite a mess too!
Then, time for a FANCY, FANCY meal.
This was our FANCY, french fries and fruit.
This was soooooooo stinkin' adorable.
And they even used FANCY cups. So FUN!!

Letter F is FINISHED!! Next up is G!
