We went outside to see the ducks. We didn't see any ducks, but O had fun trying to catch minnows. We also played "Have you seen my duckling?" O was the duckling, and I pretended like I couldn't see her (don't worry mom. She was NEVER out of my sight!), and I asked everything around me "Have you seen my duckling"? This game was a big hit, and we've played it several times since then. O knows, of course, that she is never to be out of our sight while playing in or near the water. We have a very strict rule that we never play hide and seek outside, and she is always amazed when she sees children in books playing hide and seek outside since that is the ultimate in naughty/dangerous behavior :)
We took bread out to feed the ducks, but ended up feeding the minnows instead. The minnows were excited. We also practiced being very still. If you stay very still in the water, the minnows will nibble your toes!
O's favorite story stretcher was this pond/lake habitat that we made using beach sand and water. I gave her several ducks, plastic insects, and people to play with, and she was engrossed in this activity for quite a while.
How do you like the life vest? I was looking at one of those for my 3y/o and i don't know if that's the one we should get or not.ReplyDelete
Love some of the ideas you've been using with your daughter. Hope you continue to feel well during your pregnancy.ReplyDelete
Christy- We like the vest for playing in the lake and pool. I don't feel like it's safe enough for her to wear in the ski boat even though it is certified for her to wear in a motor boat. She is right at the borderline for the beginning weight, so it tends to become a little loose once she is wet. She was able to take it off by herself when she first started wearing it, and I did not like that at all. We started tightening after she's wet after that.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tracey! I wouldn't say that I feel well, but I shouldn't comlain since I'm not spending all of my time sitting by the toilet anymore :) Hopefully, I'll be able to stop my anti-nausea meds soon...
I tagged you on my blog-go check it out!ReplyDelete
So adorable! I love all your ideas! Maybe O would like to play "Duck Duck Goose?".ReplyDelete
