Well we are halfway through our Fourth of July theme – fireworks!! The boys are really enjoying our firework activities although I’ve realized that now we’re going to have to actually go to see fireworks this weekend!
Anyway, for some reading practice we made some fireworks!!
I had the boys color these paper bags red, white, and blue.
Then I cut them out in the shape of fireworks. The boys added glue and glitter and I added sight words (and the letter F for Royal).
Then I cut out a bunch of blue and red fireworks and wrote down a bunch of words ending in –an and –at. I had Baloo glue all the –an words on red and the –at words on blue.
Our beautiful fireworks!!!
To make the fireworks cut out a circle and fold in half twice.
Cut out 2 triangles
Then you’ll have a beautiful firework!!
Royal has recently learned how to open the fridge. He has to use just about his entire body, but he can consistently get it open now. A friend of mine mentioned that when her daughter could open the fridge she had to move everything to a top shelf and leave just a few things that her daughter was allowed to get into. I like this idea as opposed to blocking off the fridge altogether. I knew that would just further his curiosity.
So the solution?
I put all his available snacks in single size portions in these little cups (I have found them at Target, Walmart, and most grocery stores). Royal has raisins, blueberries, grapes, applesauce, and chocolate pudding. Baloo has grapes, applesauce, and chocolate pudding. I figure everyday I will prepare a few of these and whenever they want a snack they can go get one. When the snacks are gone, they’re gone!!
So far Royal seems to love it. He likes being in control of his snack, and he has left the rest of the fridge alone!
I’m going to make and print some little labels for each of the boys tonight!

We’re doing a 4th of July theme week and I made some printables for Royal (tot school age). I wanted to share them before the holiday comes though!
