After the ceremony we had dinner. We had it catered and I’m glad we did. Normally, I don’t get a chance to visit during our bigger parties because I’m making sure everyone got enough, refilling drinks and worrying that we’ll run out of food!
This week was easy to pick the theme and letter. Since it was Grandparent Day yesterday we had our theme be Grandparents, our letter was G and the color was green. For our G activities we played Hid & Seek with her giraffe. I hid her musical giraffe and turned on it’s music. Then she went searching for it. She found it pretty dang quickly so we played it several times and she stayed invested in the game the whole time. WIN! We read Go Dog Go and also played outside on the grass, which led us to our color activities.
I have a 15 month old and our day to day schedule has gotten stale to say the least! While browsing Pinterest (the saving grace of how many moms?!) I found a lot of preschool ideas and decided we’d start doing our own Pre-Preschool! Every week we’ll learn about a theme, letter, color and 3 words. Every day we do an activity focusing on one of those. She’s a huge animal lover so I thought it was only fitting that our first theme was animals. For our animal activities we read her animal books, put together her animal puzzle, brushed our cat and watched her favorite Sesame Street episode, the pet episode!
