Marble Fun on a Rainy Day

Developing my fine motor skills
Mommy got this foam block from the Dollar Tree,
stuck Daddy's golf tees in it, and then gave me marbles
to balance on them

putting the marbles on the golf tees without them falling off,
proved to be challenging at first.

Once I got the hang of it, Mommy announced
 I had to take them off with  tongs!!
This kept me busy for awhile!!

I was determined to perfect it and spent quite a bit of time
putting the marbles on the golf tees and then taking them off again with the tongs

After that, Mommy cut one of my summer pool noodles
 in half and we did marble races
We also watched to see how far the marbles
rolled across the floor after going down their slides

It was a lot of fun!

Fizzle Pumpkin Painting

Mommy found a cool painting activity for me on Pinterest.
Her only hesitation was that we had to use vinegar..
She can't stand the smell and it makes her nauseous.

I began painting my pumpkin with a mixture
 of paint and baking soda

then once my pumpkin was covered in paint,
Mommy gave me a bowl of vinegar and an eye dropper

She showed me how to suck up the vinegar
 in the eye dropper and spray it on my pumpkin

Lots of little fizzes took place

This is definitely a Toddler Approved project!

I got a little carried away though
 this was the last picture Mommy
took before I squirted her with the vinegar on accident. OoPs.

Tower of Babel

I recently learned about the Tower of Babel
in my Preschool BSF class
Mommy then reread the story using -
 the Jesus Storybook Bible.
After that we got my blocks and people out to reenact it!
the people building a tower to reach the heavens

God was not pleased when the people disobeyed Him,
so he confused their language

They stopped building
 since they couldn't understand each other.
Then God put the people all over the earth-
Bye Bye Tower of Babel!!
Check out Genesis 11:1-9 in the Bible for the adult version
or get the Jesus Storybook Bible for kids like me!

Trick or Treat

Daddy and Me Trick or Treating
Mommy and Daddy labored many hours creating Daddy's costume,
but it was worth it because Daddy
won 1st Place in a Halloween Costume Contest!

It was my first time trick or treating and I was SO excited..
Daddy was so popular that he slowed me down!
People kept coming up to him and asking if they could
take a picture or pose with him.
And then other times
his costume was so big, he couldn't fit between the cars
 or walk up the driveway.... 
I decided to practice my independence
and break away. Candy was calling me!

I got really good at knocking on doors.
I also developed a habit of knocking until they answered.
Group photo of everyone who joined us.
I had lots of fun and scored enough candy to last me a very long time!

My first field trip for Hoffman Tot  Academy was at
The Woodland Park Zoo

I learned about them during animal week



Ssssssss for snake!
I actually can't remember what animal we saw in here..

Wow, that monkey is tall!

Maddie, Caleb, and I had fun climbing on the monkeys.
We had a blast and I look forward to next time!

Fighting Crime as Spiderman

The day before attending my first Halloween Party,
I was bitten in the face by another child at Sunday School.
Ironically enough, I planned to be Spiderman for Halloween....

I was not a happy Superhero.
Giving you a serious look with the better part of my face

Showing you a Spiderman move with my web action hands.
I was ready for some crime fighting adventure, so I set off
to the Halloween party only to find....

that there were THREE other Spidermen thinking the same thing!!!!

No worries though.
We agreed to fight crime as the Spiderman Team

Hope you all had a fabulous Halloween!
