Letter of the week – P

Molly pulled out her Crazy 8 cards and asked, "Can we play patterns?" It was the perfect impromptu game to start off our P week.

We made a pink pig for our P craft.

After 2 attempts to get the dough right, we were finally able to make whole wheat soft pretzels. Molly helped me roll them, "paint" them with egg whites and sprinkled them with salt.

We made some bubble wrap prints,

and finally played with the pattern blocks she got for her birthday.

Molly had so much fun painting with our homemade puff paint. You can see a video of her painting here.

Our little Picaso

For our stART project, we made blueberry pancakes just like Curious George in Curious George Makes Pancakes.

    This pig-lover just had to give a shout-out to the letter/animal of the week! Whoo-hoo!! Curious George and his crazy pancake-making is a fave over here, as well!

    I love those bubble wrap prints! I’ll have to see if Jillian will do it for me (once I’m off bed rest of course…). Usually when I give her something new to paint with, she tries it for about a minute and then goes with her hands instead!

    Love all the painting. I need to get the paints out more!!

  4. Alright, Alright, I have to say…that little pig is adorable.

    I am hosting a a new blog collaboration called The Ultimate Alphabet Craft Collection. Would you want to possibly link this alphabet craft (and any others) up to the collection? We would love you feature you.

    Thanks so much,

    Cathy @ The Attached Mama

    Love the idea of Puff Paint! And I think my daughter will love it, too! We did P a few weeks ago, and this week I plan to do some review….so this activity will be great!
