On our days at home, I have decided to try and teach Paul his letters! This has led to an explosion in my Pinterest pins of fun things to do with a toddler! Our first attempt was making an alligator A. Paul loves to put his hands together and tell us the alligator says, "CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP!"
Then we played with play-doh. I had to remind him several times that we do not eat play-doh, nor is it something we feed the dog but overall it was a success.
My mother of the year award grew with our science lesson, pouring vinegar into baking soda and making a "big explosion." After that experiment he told me "science is awesome."
The next day we worked on letter B and made a bumble bee! He loved the painting part of the project!
And then we colored on our windows.
This picture has nothing to do with anything, but I found it on my iphone that Paul must have taken himself. I love his cute school boys shoes with socks and his monkey is nearby.
Do I feel like Paul is some sort of baby genius that knows all his letters? No. Do I feel like preparing for theses projects takes MUCH LONGER than the actual task? Yes. But nonetheless, I am so grateful to have some time at home with the little man and watch him learn and grow and make explosions!
