I was really pushing the letter K together with Halloween since Brodey (and the rest of us) are so into pretty much any holiday! I made this kitten jack o lantern
and also carved this star into a pumpkin and put this lit up letter K inside. (that I got at Wal*mart for $2.50) I put that outside the front door so he could look inside and see what letter were doing today.
Which was super cute!
He knew it was a letter K right when he saw it so I figured whatever else happened today, he already knew this letter!
He helped me scatter these numbered papers onto the floor then he hopped like a frog (he’s super into frogs right now) onto the number I called out.
. Brinley liked looking at the numbers too.
He practiced cutting paper a bit but he wasn’t into any of the “paperwork” today. I printed out a letter K and had Special K and Kix cereal for him to glue onto the K but he didn’t go for that. He did however, have his own idea! He asked me to cut out a frog (I told you he’s into frogs!) and then he ‘made it into a toad’ by gluing the special K onto the frogs back and a Kix cereal for the eye. I love that he has his own ideas and such an imagination! Since I am Grandma, I do not push him into any activity, its just there if he is interested. That is one reason I do not put much time or money into any activity, I don’t want to be disappointed if he doesn’t participate in something. The pumpkins this week did take some time! Almost an hour per pumpkin but that was just because I knew he would appreciate it and I enjoyed doing it. The kitten pumpkin is now outside my door for a decoration while it lasts – its already getting moldy inside so it won’t last long now 🙁 Brinley’s discovery basket had a kiwi (to go with our K theme) and broccoli, an apple and a seashell.
We saved some time for going to a nearby pumpkin patch (which had nothing to do with the letter K) and their momma got some work done in the peace and quiet while we were gone. …..a jump house……… a photo opportunity! animals and a maze!
