This is getting embarrassing! We’re started new sports programs since t-ball and soccer are over. Basketball is Baloo’s new team sport, but now he’s also in a fun sports variety program Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Our tot time is in the morning, so that has just cut our time down drastically. Add to that, the weather here in Tampa is finally cooling off!!! We have spent time just about every day at the playground. It’s so wonderful being able to go outside without immediately sweating. Okay enough excuses! Here is what we did manage to do!
Our letter of the week was J and we decided on Jewelry for our theme. We didn’t really do this all week, just one day. Baloo and I both wore necklaces (aka Mardi Gras beads) and we proudly showed off our jewelry everywhere we went. He actually really enjoyed that part. Then we made a jewelry J. We glued on the Mardi Gras beads for a necklace and used glitter for the earrings. I intended on the ears to be on the top of the J, but Baloo obviously had a different opinion on where they should be located.
We actually played with a lot of toys this week, but only got one picture of this one activity. I got these finger puppets at Ikea. There are 2 sets and these finger puppets are so cute. Baloo and I will hold full conversations with the puppets. I really think it’s helping his communication skills. He actually asks me questions randomly, and when I answer he asks me another question that is related. He has names for all the puppets, although most of them are like Shark and Lady.
