For February I chose to do a red themed sensory tub. It has lots of heart goodies in it, so it also doubles as a Valentine’s tub! Mikayla loves to pull out the little heart shaped games and shake until her heart is content! She is also a fan of stirring the items with the large rose. Check it out.
This is just a sampling of the items in the tub. Obviously there are more of each item shown. From top left and around clockwise you have foil heart garland, silicone heart shaped baking cups, heart maze game, heart bracelets, red roses that smell like flowers, red foil/filler pieces, red beads (leftover from our Christmas tree) and a large red rose given to me from Ben when we were in high school.
She couldn’t hardly keep her hands out long enough for me to take a picture!
Stay tuned for our march tub, the theme is green (in honor of St. Patrick’s day and the hopes of Spring)!
On February 2, we also had a little groundhogs celebration. I found a cute little cupcake here. I thought it might be fun to make at school with my kiddos. They had such a blast I brought the supplies home to let Mikayla join in on the action. Thanks to the kindergarten classes, we also got a cute little groundhog headband. We ended the evening playing a groundhog game on Starfall.
This kid loves her some candy…wonder where she gets that?
I love Groundhog’s Day mommy!
I promise the ones I made at school looked cuter! Between Mikayla and Ben helping out, ours at home got a little messy!
We have had a ton of snow here in BG this winter! I am loving it, besides having to drive home in it! We got so much yesterday that school dismissed early and we had another snow day today. That hardly ever happens for us! Mikayla has become quite the little snow bunny. When she hears the word snow or sees the white stuff in the sky she immediately grabs her snowsuit and boots and demands to be taken outside. The other day Ben told her it was supposed to snow before it actually started. In typical Mikayla fashion she ran and grabbed her snowsuit and boots and demanded they be put on. When she was all bundled up he took her outside and she was a little disappointed to find that there was no snow on the ground. Needless to say she was a little happier the next morning when there was snow to play with. She even cried yesterday when we told her it was time to come inside.
Night night sledding with daddy.
Notice her gloves. Somewhere in the along the way we have lost the second mitten that goes with her snow suit, so we have to double up on gloves/mittens on her second hand.
Cheesing in the snow!
