She loved the bugs, and we started playing with them immediately after opening the package.

She and O(5) both LOVE the stories from our Action Alphabet book which we read almost every day (at their request).
She pretended to be a ballerina.
She painted with blue paint.
We made butterflies out of coffee filters and clothes pins.
They spread their wings and flew like birds while on an afternoon walk.
We wrote E's name using glue and black beans. She was excited about this activity at first, but lost interest because she preferred to play with the objects from the black bean bowl.
We had a wonderful time playing with unit blocks on our porch.
We had fun playing with our Noah's Ark balancing blocks.
E loved matching the blocks.
E loves to hold the bugs from our dead bug collection.
We had a fantastic time playing with pop beads! I kept a close eye on her though since she is still a bit unpredictable about putting things in her mouth.
We read about bats in Stellaluna, and she ran inside to show me that she could hang by her feet to sleep.
She loves to paint with her dot painters.

She traced the sandpaper "b" while saying the "b" sound.
She loved playing with her nesting blocks.

She played with her 3 people in a boat toy.
She also balanced on the balance beam, had "boat school" (at her request), made homemade (bread machine) bread, made butter, picked and ate basil leaves, etc. I never realized how many things/activities start with "b" until I started making a list of "b" activities...we could stay on "b" week for months!
