Letter D | Dog, Dinosaur & Doughnut + Giveaway

Sunday, November 08, 2015

Summer is 39 months old.

This week, we picked back up with our letter of the week focus to learn all about Letter D.  It was a full week of activities and lots of pretend play.

Here's a look at our set-up.

Bottom Left: Alphabet Bone Hunt | Bottom Middle: Playdough Mat | Bottom Right: Donut Matching

Our base program from Bitty Beginnings on Etsy is always my starting point. Then, I expand upon the theme based on Summer's interests and additional skills I wish for her to work on.  You can grab these printables in the Bitty Beginnings shop and take 50% off your entire purchase until November 30th!

I hid her look and find pieces in kinetic sand which is so cool, she then used a paintbrush to "excavate" the pieces.

We worked on shadow matching letter puzzles.

Summer loves stickers!  She got these as a gift and used them to decorate her Letter D.

Matching games are another favorite! We take turns laying down a card and the other person finishes the match.

She switched things up on me this week and wanted to circle her letters with a highlighter.

We made dog collars for her puppies using pipe cleaners, beads and these letter bracelets.

Spotting the difference in each row...

And, size sorting...

She's still really into cutting activities and does pretty good with control.  I do help hold the paper and she occasionally needs a reminder not to chop.

This week, she was actually interested in pattern blocks and worked on several activities from here.

Donut painting with puffy paint...

And, lots of pretend play.  We used a cardboard box to make a doghouse.  She loved this!

We also used an empty corner in our room to create a dinosaur land, with a few faux trees and dinosaur figurines.  This provided hours of fun!

    1. Thank you, Erin! Simple and fun is what works for us right now. She seems to enjoy it and it's manageable for me, as well. I hope you both enjoy the ideas. :-)
