Today is the second day of the Rooster back in public school. So far, so good. I’m trying to ease into what I hope to accomplish with the Chick this spring. Mostly I’m hoping to just enjoy her and be with her, instead of filling our days up with nonsense things or to-do lists.
This morning we made playdoh. This has been on my list of things to do with the kids for months. I’m hoping to get into the habit of doing a new “flavor” each month. This month being a snow filled month, we just kept it white and added some peppermint extract and glitter. It was totally easy and fun to boot!
Next, we did our January/Winter sensory box. I’m learning with these tubs that I need to add little things as we go along in the month, versus throwing everything in there at one time. I’m hoping to add a few more wintery kinds of things, but for now she is content to play with it as is.
snowflake ornaments (Target clearance)
momma made pom pom balls
glittery felt trees, snowflakes and snowmen (Dollar Tree)
As January drags on (can you tell I’m not a winter person?) I am hoping to add:
an ice cream scoop
a small white bowl
some large cotton balls
some penguin or polar bear animals
