Tot Time - Orange


This is a fairly long post, but we did a wide variety of activities this week and apparently I had the camera ready to shoot pics of her whenever we did activities. 

Our theme this week was the color Orange.  R. enjoyed playing in the rainbow rice with various orange objects placed inside.  She really liked the orange screwdriver and also poking the orange pom-poms down under the rice.

I recently bought R. this new Melissa and Doug puzzle.  It really amazes me how well she can do it.  She matches all of the pieces to the right spot.  She does struggle getting them turned exactly right, however this is getting better.


These are the lacing beads I purchased from the Dollar Tree last week.  They are a little rough on the inside and so the string sticks and makes them difficult to get on.  Hubby is going to take a drill bit to them to smooth them out a little.  R. likes to play with them, and I noticed that she does not like the yellow cubes.  She picked all of the other beads, but not the cubes.

R. loved playing with orange Play-doh.  She has played with it various times before but never really got into it.  This time she tore little pieces off and squished it. 


I made some stampers for R. to use with some orange paint.  I stuck foam stickers onto some left-over wooden blocks from a christmas present.  As you can tell she loved this.



I also let her paint with some porcupine balls. This was not as fun for her as I thought it would be.  She was finished fairly quickly and wasn’t a fan of having the paint on her hands.


She also discovered that it shouldn’t go on the face or in the mouth.  YUCK!


And as always, a favorite activity was placing sticks into the sugar shaker.  Orange sticks to be exact.

And now for the photoshoot from Monday.  Every time I would say look at mommy or say cheese, this is what I got…..
