This week I watched the kids all 5 days.

Bo had a dino box.

 It had beans, easter grass, and shredded paper.

 The dinos and fossils were Toobs and the cave was an aquarium.

 Bo loved his.

 Sis had flour.

 Gus ate the flour Amelia dropped.

 Tuesday we headed to the park to enjoy the polar vortex.

 Amelia once again enjoyed her box.

We also made ice cream in a bag, but it didn't last long.

 Wednesday was more of the same.

She liked the sand.

 After the boxes we went and played in the big dirt pile in the backyard.

And wrestled on the trampoline.

Bo sang to us.


 "Why do I need a bath?"

 Bo and I made a bouncy ball. It was more like bouncy slime, but he had fun.

Thursday morning it was just me and Bo because Sis had to go to the doctor.

Later we did his box.

Then we did squirt gun painting.

 It was process art. The final result was wet,  brown paper.

 But it was fun.

 Friday we went to a new park.

Then we came home and did the boxes again.

This was our lapbook.

The letters were laminated so he could trace them.

 The book had a dino for every letter.

A puzzle

Color matching

Heads and tail.

It was a long week, but we had fun.

Walking in the Woods...Like the Wild Kratts

Bo's box was a desert.

The base was sand.

 I added in a desert Toob and made cacti from pipe cleaners.

Sissy had colored ice and water.

She liked to eat it.

 We also made some trail mix to take on our walk.

On Wednesday we went walking at Isaac Walton. The first thing Bo said was, "We're like the Wild Kratts!"

 This were the best pictures I could get.

 Then we had a picnic. Love the baby photo bomb.

Another sister photo bomb.

Then I let them go exploring.

Sissy played in the dirt.

Bo collected rocks in his bug catcher.

When we got home we did the boxes.

I went over for a few hours on Thursday.

Bo made some new swirly crayons.


Then both kids did their boxes the last time.

Bo also did some playdough mats.

He decided to go on a rock hunt one day too.
