Yes! I followed through with the first craft I had planned for Meredith. Because it was all spelled out in a book, it was very easy. She loved it and we had fun together. Maybe this craft thing won’t be so bad (for me) after all!!
Here is the Octopus craft—this week’s theme was “the ocean” since we just got back from the beach house. We read a bunch of books with stories about sea life, scuba divers, building sand castles, taking trips to the beach, etc., etc. I also learned a finger game that Meredith loved about five fish and shark. This idea was also in that library book.
Here is Meredith copying out her name on her marker board. It’s a long name—I’m proud of her for trying so hard. She finally got her “E” right. It used to look like an upright caterpillar with lots of legs!
