Tot School- Winter Fun

Our Tot School has been very relaxed around here lately. We have returned to Toddler Time at the library and we have enjoyed a few play dates with friends, but we haven't been focusing on a letter of the week for almost a couple months now. When we do take some time for crafts it has mostly been Winter themed. Here's a look at some of our fun...
We played with some winter themed foam stickers.
We played with snowflake stamps (a set of 6 from Mighty Dollar).
I put the items from our Winter Celebration sensory bin into a smaller container
and Seth has been having fun playing with it almost everyday.
I found fake ice cubes at Hobby Lobby and they have been the biggest hit.
I am always amazed at what things become the most played with items.
We took an empty Pringles can
and turned it into a snowman.
We filled a plastic storage bag with shaving cream...
squished it all around...
and made it into snowman by gluing eyes and a nose onto it.
We also used an empty toilet paper tube to make a snowman. We dipped the end of it in paint and it made three perfect circles for a body. We added a hat, eyes, nose, and mouth. Then we used a Q-tip to paint snow.
Next week we will resume our letter of the week Tot School. We will be learning about the letter "Y" (the last letter of our last name in case you were wondering where all these random letters are coming from). Then we will make our way through the rest of the alphabet.
