I’m not kidding when I say that my daughter is obsessed with these books. We literally read them 4-5 times a day!!! She knows them by heart and she loves to read aloud!!
The Dollar section at Target is the best for finding teaching treasures. We used these Halloween erasers for counting, graphing and sorting. My daughter loved using a timer.. It was fun for her to have to rush.
A random science project I got for $5 at Marshalls. It's one of those things I always looked at since I was a kid, but never tried. It's funny how children can make you so open to new things? My daughter had such a great time with her daddy.
It took patience and self control to not touch and shake the growing container. It would take about 9 days to grow. Every day she would push her chair over to the counter and gaze at the growing crystal.
There was one day that she couldn't help herself and just had to touch it. The container was completely cloudy and crystals had cracked off. They were afraid that that was the end of it. They left it for a night, the dust settled and the growing continued. The final product was really cool. They plan to do all of the other colors in the coming weeks.
I usually keep an endless list of possible activities to do each day. It turned out to be a potato stamping day. I cut the potatoes in half and used fall cookie cutter/stamps. It was a nice sensory experience. .
My husband and my daughter made a Halloween ginger bread house. Building the house was so frustrating, he almost gave up. With a lot of patience he finally got the walls to stick together. My daughter took over from there.. She loves spooky things. Don't ask me why....She really is obsessed with Halloween year round like some people are with Christmas. It's too cute and hilarious!
