We all love the Usbone “That’s Not My…” books. I think we have 5 or 6 and they are always on birthday/Christmas lists. We even have one in French – C’est Ne Pas Mon Chien!
After reading through our entire collection today I suggested that we make our own. We brainstormed the topic and decided on brother!
That’s not my brother…his necklace is too shiny!
That’s not my brother…his hair is too rough!
We ended up with 5 pages total.
That’s not my brother…his hair is too rough (sandpaper for hair)
That’s not my brother…his necklace is too shiny (aluminum foil for the necklace)
That’s not my brother…his ears are too bumpy (one side of cardboard)
That’s not my brother…his clothes are too fluffy (wool batting)
Those are my brothers!! They are so cuddly! (picture of the boys!)
And then they read the book together.

Royal is 26.5 months
Tot school was a bit scarce this week as we started kindergarten with Baloo, but we did get a few things in!
We spent a lot of time outside (though most of it in the little spool and sprinkler.) This is Royal being a tree.
I started his Oo for Octopus printables but they aren’t finished yet.
We also continued using the Jj is for jellyfish printables from 1+1+1=1.
We added in the 2nd sheet of the Ocean Montessori cards and he loved it! I think we will go ahead and do the 3rd sheet this week!
That’s it from us this week! Check out more ideas from 1+1+1=1!!
Royal is 26 months
Our F for Fireworks theme this week was so much fun!!! We’re not going to any fireworks this weekend but I’m secretly hoping that some of our neighbors break the burn ban and light a few.
We had a lot of fun coloring, gluing, and glittering some fireworks!
Royal has never seen fireworks so I tried to explain it to him a bit. He put the fireworks in the air and said BANG. He really enjoyed that part.
The popping was interesting…
But eating the popcorn was much better
Baloo helped Royal color his Ff is for fireworks printables!
I made some red, white, and blue star crayons that were a hit!
Royal had no interest in coloring the fireworks according to the words below so Baloo and I helped while Royal colored everything brown.
He didn’t care much for tracing the lines, but he did color the sheet while shouting BANG over and over.
We spent a lot of time outdoors this week so we didn’t get a lot of time playing with toys or working on trays. Royal did pull this toy out and spent quite awhile putting pieces in and fitting them in different places.
That’s it for us this week!! Check out 1+1+1=1 for more tot school ideas!
