Week In Review: February 16 - 20

It was quite the busy week at daycare. Playing pretend, Lego building, and Barbie's took up most of the week. The kids didn't have much interest in doing any crafts or activities, but I did manage to get them to do Kool Aid Snow Painting. We ended our busy week with Book Store Day. Here's a quick peek at our week:

 I set up a Barbie corner for the week. The kids thoroughly enjoyed playing with the Barbie house (Calego Modern Doll House), tent (Barbie Sisters' Safari Tent Playset with 4 Dolls), camper (Barbie Sisters Life in The Dreamhouse Camper) and convertible (Barbie Glam Convertible). Even the boys enjoyed it.
Kool Aid Snow Painting (
Flour sand sensory table. This wasn't quite as messy as I had envisioned. The messiest thing about it was when the kids put the Barbie's in and got them completely dirty.

The kids quizzed each other on letter recognition with the Alpha Bots (ABC Robo Alpha bot 26 pieces BOX (japan import)).
Shaving cream sensory activity.
The kids helped make spaghetti and meatballs one day for lunch.
Our oldest mini Max had such stellar school conferences that we treated everyone to Dairy Queen afterwards. I helped Harrison finish his chocolate covered waffle cone-yum!

The Barbie wash. The Barbie's got crazy messy with flour caked in each doll's hair from the flour sand table. I told the kids earlier in the week that if they put the Barbie's in the table, I would make them clean them. So, I turned their clean up into fun. I set a sudsy bin of water on a towel in the kitchen, tooth brushes and wash cloths to scrub with, and combs to get the flour out of the Barbie's hair.
Baking soda snow and polar bear pencil toppers. Mostly they just buried the polar bears in the "snow" and the kids took turns finding them.
The kids "built a house." I appreciated the creativity, Hubs did not appreciate the mess.

Next week the kids will get to enjoy a "Pete The Cat" Day complete with crafts, games, and books and they'll get to help me celebrate my birthday at the end of the week with a pajama and movie day (at the request of a daycare child) and a homemade berry cake!
