Tot School (last two weeks)

We've been trying to fit in some Tot School fun these last two weeks...between the stomach flu, and taking care of both kids and all. :) Here's what we've been up to!

Zachary started working on this coloring workbook - I think we've accomplished one page so far - it focuses on following directions & on colors:

Here he is coloring red ketchup onto an omelet:

We fingerpainted. He loved getting the paint all over his hands and making handprints.

and all over his face...


I let him hang his finished painting on his wall in his room, which he was super excited about. When I, or my hubby, put him to bed, he points it out- "I painted."

We also made snowmen this week, out of cotton balls. He loves using glue, so here he is gluing on the cotton balls:


And gluing on the hat:



And here is our finished product:


Zachary also practiced mopping this week:


And he has started eating his meals at the big table instead of in his highchair. It hasn't been TOO much more messy so far... :)


Here he is helping with Natalie's playtime - showing her a glowworm doll & making it sing to her.

And here he is pretending to be a baby having his OWN playtime on Natalie's pillow. Pretending to be a baby is a big thing right now - he loves to be 'burped' and lets out a pretty cute 'hicCUP'. :)

This week, we have a Valentine's craft that we're planning to do, and I'm hoping we can get outside to play in the snow some, too. I'll close with a completely free and adorable picture of Natalie, for your viewing enjoyment. :)

For more Tot School posts, head on over to 1+1+1=1!

Carrie - Natalie has GROWN!!! I cannot believe it! And Z is as cute as ever! You do such a great job with his Tot School. You are brave to let him finger paint! {wink}

Oh my word, I would so love to do that kind of stuff with PArker, but he'd just eat everything or rip it up. Ugh

You are a brave mommy to fingerpaint with a 2 year old while caring for a 6 week old. Nice!

I just love the face he's making in the third picture. And Natalie is getting so big. Your kids are just too cute!
