Ramps and Pathways

 We added Ramps to our sand box
 It has been a hit all summer.
 I wish you could hear the commentary of John Deere, Mighty Machine lingo going on.

 They are building and planing all day long
 up hill and down
 It's a lot of work for little hands

Tumble Time

 Someone calls out a action, and down the line you go.
 This has become our new indoor maddness
 At first it was just out of control, but now they are aware of each other and taking turns,
 They are creative and free
They are playful just the way kids should be. So fun you should try it. I won't tell.

We Speak for the Tree's

             Since we saw the Lorax we are all about doing recycled crafts
                                         this one was fun and easy.

               I cut out letters and fun pictures from my old magazines

                and pre wrote each childs name on a piece of card stock

                  I instructed them to spell there name under with the

                        letters given in the same order.

                     The kids are between the ages of 2 and 4 and                   
                  everyone was pretty much able to do it one there own

                            we used glue sticks and applied the glue to the card stock first

                            since the magazine paper is so thin. Simple instruction but

                          anything to save a melt down.


                           Don't they look funky!!! They liked the idea that

                        they recycled the magazines. They speak for the Trees!
