I thought I would share with you some activities that I do with my children. I try to have a theme each week and base some activities, craft and learning around the theme.
We focused on the letter "T" as we wanted to incorporate trees into the week and do the Virtual Book Club For Kids activity planned.
The first thing we did was a colour matching game with a traffic light. Adam decorated a white piece of cardstock and I placed red, orange and green circles on it. Adam then matched another circle with the correct colour.
We also made tulips out of iceblock sticks and red construction paper.
Lucas had fun playing "La Tienda" for our Spanish learning. The New World Little Shop collectibles came in handy for teaching all the food item names and some of the objects used at the store such as bags, money and shopping trolleys.
Our snack was a tree made out of kiwifruit, tropical fruit salad mix and a banana.
The boys practiced their fine motor skills by picking up leftover green spaghetti from their FlumFlum trees with tongs.
We also had a fun teddy bear's picnic in the lounge, where we had a teddy and T themed snack and sat on the picnic rug with all of the teddies.
For family fun night, we set up a tent indoors and had a camping meal of burgers.
I made indoor smores by using chocolate thin biscuits and placing a marshmallow on top, then melting in the microwave for 20 seconds. Topped with another chocolate thin biscuit, this were messy but delicious!
We had a great week focused on the letter T.
