February School Vacation Wednesday 18th 2015

Today was filled with lots of fun. My daughters joined the Daycare for awhile to play games with the kids. My oldest daughter gave airplane rides with her knees and feet. She also did a “hair Salon” and a Disney music dance party.  My younger daughter was a “Teacher” and did really well helping the kids with letters and counting.  She also played barbies and house with the kids for some time. The kids love it when they come down. A variety of toys/items were used, as well, today.  Quite a bit of imaginary play went on.

Another great day. Enjoy the pictures. Some really cute ones.

New Construction set/Block Trains/Fashion Show all in one day.

Wednesday was a great day here. There was a half day of School so all the kids were here all afternoon.  During the morning the younger kids and I played with some fine motor toys as well as creative play.  I picked up a new toy that was a big hit, a construction set. I also got wooden trains that the children place blocks on to build them up.
During the afternoon the older three kids begged my daughter to do a fashion show. She agreed and below you can see how wonderful and “Cool” they all looked.

Another great day!

I hope you enjoy the photos and BLOG. If so, please consider leaving a comment.

Letter “B” Beaver, Bear and lots of playing

Another great day!! JP was back with us today.   The kids have been excited to make our Bear craft since they saw me looking at it yesterday. So today became “B” day.  We did things in a different order today, we did crafts first, then watched a few short learning videos about the letter B and it’s sound and words that begin with B.  So, our first craft was actually a “B”eaver made out of construction paper and some other add on’s. Next we made the CD Bears.   Each child got a CD and I cut out some felt pieces to make the eyes and nose and paper ears. The backs of the felt was actually sticky, so all they had to do was pull the backing off and stick it in the right place on the CD. Once done I added some black marker for the eyes and mouth.  Off to the play room to play MANY different activities.  This is where they watched the letter B videos, as well as BINGO and Wheels on the Bus.  “E” built a castle.  We also has three VERY sick kids today, so each one took turns being the Doctor. We had some “Crazy dancing”. Then, three strangers stop by, see if you recognize them. We also had dress up with two princesses and a Fire Fighter.

Cooking and Dress up Fun

Full house today since it is school Vacation.  The kids had a full morning of fun. THEY made (with a little help) Chocolate Chip Waffles that we would have for lunch.  They love to help cook.  Then, we had a Fashion show put on by the children (costume picker, my daughter Brianna).  It was awesome. We had Superman, A Magician, a Vampire, a devil, two cowgirls, 2 Princesses,  Tinkerbell, well you can see them all for yourself.  They had so much fun and so didn’t my daughter helping them.  After the Fashion show I cooked the waffles, while the ids played Pinball.  Then we ate, back to the play room then rest/movie time.

Great day to be out in the snow

We were outside playing the entire morning. The kids did not want to come in. The sun was nice and bright, the weather was farely warm so they just kept on playing.  They did want to go sledding, and I tried to tell them that this isn’t the right snow for it, but they really wanted to go. Each child took one turn down my hill and decided that was enough, K went into the woods, as you will see. In turn she got to ride in the sled on the way back up.  The snow was hard and very deep. They all went down the slides, tried to make snow angels (that didn’t work so well), jumped off the picnic table into the snow, we even took a nature walk. They wanted to go to their “Secret” fort, which is the area of trees in the middle of the circle as you approach my house.  You will also see where they are looking into the play room from outside (EMERGENCY EXIT) and also took a rest in the shade laying down.  There wasn’t much time before lunch when we finally did come in, so we went to the play room where they played dress up, did puzzles and played a game before lunch.

Hand prints, Painting, Dress up and Outside play.

We had a very busy and fun filled day today.  We made hand prints using Finger paint which the kids loved because Finger paint=messy.  Then the kids were really excited to use paint and brushes to create a picture.  I put colors of paint on a plate and we talked about the colors and an example of what matches each color (Red=Apple).  Once we went back down to the play room it was dress-up time. The kids enjoyed this very much, as well as many other activities.  We had 1 Fire Fighter, 2 Witches,  2 Superman, 3 Mr. Potatoe Head (Glasses) and 1 Safari person.   AND, we got to go out this afternoon!!  We also have a visitor for 2 weeks “C” who is 5 and in Kindergarten.  He is not on the BLOG however.

                            

We were outside playing for the afternoon. We played “Airplane” and they wanted to keep going, I was getting dizzy (ha ha) (“K”s Dad can atest to that), so the kids continued on their own.  It was so nice to be outside after the rain yesterday and this morning.  “J” has worked all summer on her swinging and now can pump all by herself. “M” has mastered climbing the slide ladders and is doing great progressing to a regular cup. “K” is talking so well and has a really large Vocabulary, it is like talking to a “Big” person.  I adore all “my” kids.

         

“K” seeing the Fish, Dress up, Coloring Pictures.

“K” saw the Fish tank today for the first time, she loved it. Then all three kids (+1 of my own) played Dressup. “K” was a Ballerina, “J” was a Princess and “M” was a Firefighter. They ran around that way for a little while. Then we played outside most of the day. After naps we discussed colors and each child colored a picture to take home. Hope you enjoy them. One of our drawers liked the Blue marker better on her face than the paper, Ha ha.
