Well, as you can probably guess, the girls are gone on their trip to Minnesota. C week ended abruptly, as last Wednesday we spent at the zoo, and last Thursday we were away from home all day and then the girls left.We did listen to some of our favorite C artists in the car on the way to the zoo (Casting Crowns and Jeremy Camp), and the girls looked for Cs on the long drive to the zoo. Lily begged to watch the movie Caravan of Courage, which she decided we had to watch because it started with C, as does one of the main characters Cindel. But none of these were very exciting C activities.
There were plenty of other things I had wanted to do, but we didn't get a chance to do them. I wanted to have the kids do crayon resist, which is where you color or draw a picture with crayons and then paint water color over the picture. The wax in the crayons prohibits the paint from sticking to the paper anywhere there is crayon, so you can see the colored picture through the paint. I also wanted to have the kids make paper plate cats. I was going to give them the shapes, along with a paper plate for the face and let them glue together the cats. I wanted to do counting activities (although this is something we incorporate on a daily basis, especially when doing calendar). If it wasn't so unbelievably hot, we also would've baked chocolate chip cookies or made sugar cookie dough and done cut-outs of C related things with cookie cutters.
There are so many fun things to do with the letter C. Caleb likes to cry and climb. ;) I am now trying to come up with a list of D activities the kids can do while I am at work next week. Wish me luck!
