Tot School - B is for Butterfly, Bee & Bears

Tot School
I wasn't able to do some of the things I had planned because our printer isn't working.  So we ended up doing a lot of painting projects, which was perfectly fine with Kyla.  She absolutely loves to paint!  Here are some of the fun things we did for "B" week!

We started with our easel again.

Her new favorite thing is to have me draw circles and she will color them in.  We do this all the time now.  As soon as she gets them colored in, she asks me to draw more.  She actually does a pretty good job of getting them colored in.

I couldn't print our do-a-dot page so I made my own.

We made a butterfly out of a coffee filter.  She painted it with water colors and then we put a pipe cleaner for the antenna.

We did a footprint bee.

Like I said, we did a lot of painting all week.

We enjoyed bear pancakes (more than once).
Sorted blue and yellow counting bears.  She did well with the first couple of yellow ones and then insisted they ALL go in the yellow cup.

We made bubbles in the sink and I let her play around for awhile and make a big mess.

She likes an alphabet app on my phone.  When she clicks on a letter, it plays a little song and has an animal or object that starts with that letter.

She also played with her ABC Elmo app on the iPad a little bit.  She loves it and tries so hard to trace the B, but I always help her so she can get to the fun stuff.

Here are our B books from the library.

Her favorite was by far the boats.

I get a lot of my ideas from Diapers to Diplomas.  She has so many great ideas for letters and themes!  If you missed our A week, you can see it here.

Here is her picture that will go in her alphabet album.

We left the balloons from her birthday party around for awhile so she had a blast with them.

I have a feeling C will carry over for two weeks too.  I don't have our library books or have much planned yet.  But we're loving these fun little projects we've been doing and I like taking our time.


  1. Cute! I love the little bee footprint and the balloon picture!

  2. so fun! i love these posts. gives me great ideas for Hudson. and that balloon pic is sooooo cute :)

  3. It sounds like you keep her busy! Her smile in the third picture is beyond adorable!!!

  4. OMG what a genius idea! I love it. I will definitely be "stealing" this idea for my 20 month old. She seems to have little to no interest in school time lately and it is driving me insane! This is such a fun way to teach and learn. Thanks for sharing!!
