Well, had I realized this was the 30 day mark, I might have tried to do something uber special, but I didn’t, so I didn’t. Got it? But the Letter C is kind of special. Without it, we couldn’t spell Cookie! And what kind of world would THAT be?
Today’s activity was a craft and a play thing all in one! Using the line “C is for Car”, we made a fun road for Zach to play with his cars.
Basically the idea was to create a road, made of the letter C, then let Zach push his cars around on it.
So, I cut a letter C out of construction paper.
Then Zach helped me glue it to the paper. This was apparently so easy he could do it while drinking from his sippy cup, one-handed.
Once the C was glued to the paper, I took the yellow crayon and drew marks to make it look like a road.
Then I wrote “C is for Car” at the bottom, drew a little green car (to the best of my ability, which isn’t that great!) and then let Zach color it. If we’d had some car stickers, I’d probably have put those on too.
After that I had Zach drive his cars on his C road. Of course, first we had to load the cars on w/ dump trucks (obviously!).
He had fun pushing his cars around on this letter project. And he definitely remembered that C was for Car and can already point out the C on the fridge today.
What did Zach learn? All about the letter C.
What did Mommy learn? I think I need to take an art class, my car is terrible! And that getting his cars involved is a sure-fire way to get him to pay attention.
