Jellyfish – I don’t think Drew quite knew what a jellyfish was. However, we used it as practice for finding and circling the letter J. And Carter enjoyed coloring the page…and eating the crayon. 🙂
Juice – Drew definitely knows what juice is! (He’d drink it all the time if I would let him. :-))
One evening we decided to take the boys out to a local fast food restaurant for dinner and the boys were given these sticker puzzles to complete. Drew had a lot of fun peeling the stickers off the back and then matching the numbers to the spots on the front to make the picture.
We needed to spend some time reviewing the alphabet so Melinda and I came up with a few games involving two of Drew’s favorite things…being outside and chalk. 🙂
For the first game, Melinda drew a hop scotch “table” and filled it in with the first ten letters of the alphabet. Drew had so much fun hopping from letter to letter AND I think he’s starting to figure out that the letters always go in a certain order. 🙂
While Drew and I hid behind the car, Melinda drew the letters he knows in a random order. I then told him what letter to look for and he had to find it and circle it.
For the last game, Melinda drew the letters in a zigzag pattern and Drew ran from letter to letter. Drew had so much fun with each of these games and, of course, he was so excited to show Daddy his “cool”.
I had been planning to create an obstacle course for the boys to play with, however, Drew beat me to it! 🙂 (I love watching their creativity come out in their playtime.) He figured out that he could take the couch cushions off, stack them and then climb, jumb, fall and roll off. 🙂
