Bb Activities: Blowing Bubbles and Bubble-wrap Bounce Bop

E enjoyed going through all the Bb items in the box. 

{*Funny side note: when he took the bat out I said,"that is a  /b/ /b/ /b/ bat." He looked at me puzzled and said, "no es a eagle!" I chuckled and said, it looks like an eagle (with its opened wings) but it's a bat." He looked at me and said, "ok mommy." Then walked over to the baseball and swung the black bat at it!! I laughed and laughed and said, "it's not a baseball bat it's an animal bat." I was not quite sure how to explain that one! Makes sense, since the only "bat" he knew was a baseball bat!} :)

Once we talked about all the Bb items we made a Bb craft. I drew a big B on a piece of card stock and had E glue buttons on the B.

The next day we reviewed Bb and went out and blew bubbles. E loves bubbles!


This week we talked about all the different types of homes. Homes for animals and for people. We made the Shape House. This is a fun activity to review colors and shapes!

We read these books:
 Who Lives Here is about animal homes. My House/Mi Casa discusses all the rooms and parts of a home, as well as, the different types of homes people live in.


Memory Verse of the Month: "in the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth." Genesis 1:1

Memory Verse Song: "God is Creator" by Seeds Family Worship

We are continuing to talk about that God is Creator. This week we focused on the first day of creation. On day one of creation God said, "Let there be light,"and there was light.

We listened to the memory verse song as E placed the white tissue squares on the black card stock paper. {In advanced I precut the tissue paper squares and used a utility (Exacto) knife to cute squares on the black card stock paper.} once all the tissue squares were on the paper we shined the flash light through the holes. You can also hold the card stock paper up to a light or window.

Gross Motor:

I bought a roll of bubble wrap at the dollar store, brought it home and rolled it out on the living room floor. E loved this activity! He bounced, ran up and down, rolled around on it and tried to pop the bubbles. I found "The Bounce Song", by Kids Tv 123 on UTube. We played the song over and over as he bounced and bopped! He seriously played with it all week long! I eventually tapped it down with masking tape so it wouldn't bunch up.

This was a perfect letter Bb activity. 


We ended the week making a batch of finger paint. This recipe was VERY easy and QUICK! I found this recipe on Pinterest by Easie Peasie:

3 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup corn starch
2 cups water

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until mixture thickens. Cool, pour in small containers and the add food coloring. Enjoy!
