Yesterday was a rainy, cold day so I knew we would be inside the whole day. I usually try and plan fun things for the girls to do during these type days. Ashlyn just finished up a transportation unit at school and Emily is starting one on Tuesday so I decided to go with that. We read the book Away We Go! by Rebecca Kai Dotlich to start off the day. It’s not the most exciting book but it had cute pictures to talk about.
Then we collected as many cars, trains, and princess coaches that had wheels and picked out some fun colored paints. The girls had a blast rolling them in the paint and making tracks all over their papers.
After that we practiced making paper airplanes. Ashlyn loved this activity and even named the ones she made. My favorite is The Super Dee Duper 100. I don’t have any pictures of this. We were too busy having flying contests to see who’s could go the farthest. After making paper airplanes we made edible ones for a snack. All you need is a half of banana, peanut butter, a pretzel stick, and some crackers. They turned out cute and were delicious to eat!
Our final activity was fro Emily to practice her cutting skills by cutting out “train tracks”. She had to follow the tracks to the heart stickers and then stop. She did a great job!
