Week 1: Ocean Play & Learning

:: Week 1: Ocean Play & Learning ::

All this summer we have been reading different books, making crafts, and learning about new things. We have learned about farms & animals, insects & nature, and this week we started learning about oceans. Summer is filled with so many fun things but I am glad that I have taken the time to play with the girls. It makes for fun mornings and memories. 

 Day One: 

Portholes into the Ocean 

Day Two: 

Glue and Sand paintings with glitter
Day Three: 

Silly Octopi

Morning - most of the ingredients were from the farmers market or garden

Noon- read some stories about the ocean and made a little porthole of what we might find under the sea. 

Night- brownies from scratch with milk 

( Okay, so today was not a low calorie day)
