People’s Choice Photo Challenge @ Iheartfaces

This is my first entry in the I Heart Faces Photo Challenge. This week’s challenge is called People Choice and you’re to post your best shot from January.

 This was a shot that I took of Alex in the bath tub. I like the way his eyes are so bright and clear.

Valentine Learning

~Alex is 35 months~
Tot School

Finally getting back into the groove. Today we made some cute little heart shaped animals that I got the idea from Jill at Meet the Dubiens.

Love Bird

Kissy Fish

We also did some worksheets from Lawteedah and Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Completing the pattern

Matching the heart color pattern
 Valentine heart counting. This was the first time we have done a activity like this. Alex knows how to count to 10, but he doesn't get the true concept of what numbers are. We are going to work on numbers again soon.

Valentine Fun

Today was -20 degrees with the wind chill (no exaggeration) so we stayed in and did some St. Valentine's Day activities.

I finally got around to making Alex a Valentine Sensory Box. It was a big hit, especially the mini mailbox.
It has cotton balls. red pom poms, some small red and pink heart containers from Target dollar section, mini mailbox from Target dollar section, and some little heart links from the party section at the Dollar Tree. I also made a little envelope with a pink craft foam heart inside to fit in the mailbox. Total cost to make $3. 

We did a crayon resist Valentine painting. I drew a few hearts on a piece of pink construction paper with a white crayon and let Alex paint them with some watered down red paint.

And we did a Valentine heart sorting printable from Musings of Me.

Field Trip

We've been slow getting back into the swing of things. Alex seems to have no interest in doing projects lately. Daddy had most of the week off and we had a big snow this week. Today we got out of the house and went to a Children's Museum. We had a fun time and maybe learned a little something.
