This week was a long week because it rained every day. It was impossible to go outside and the kids were not very interested in doing many crafts because they were going stir crazy! We focused a lot on doing different things inside and working on their motor skills.
We had multiple dance parties while pointing out different body parts that they were moving. The songs we sang helped us focus on moving and understanding what parts they are supposed to be moving!
We focused on hands, feet, faces, arms, and legs. We did a handprint wreath that I love so much it is hanging on my front door!
We did a few halloween crafts including easy pumpkin sun-catchers and spooky footprints. The pumpkin helped with their fine motor skills and the footprints used their feet!
We played with paint in baggies that I taped to the table. This was a short lived activity, but Z enjoyed it!
Going stir crazy in the house without any running around, I built an indoor toddler obstacle course. I lined up pillows and toys and they loved crawling and climbing through it.
It was an inventive week for all of us and I hope you stop by next week because we are starting the alphabet with a new letter each day!
