Disney Week! - June 23-27

For pure fun, we decided to throw in a Disney week for the children to celebrate characters they all know and love!  We used it as a great learning experience too, making sure our activities kept our little ones' math, science, language, and writing skills sharp, in a most delightful way!  Here's a few of the things we did...

The one-year-olds made lion's masks, with a little inspiration from "The Lion King."  They also made wands and colored Mickey and Minnie pictures!

The two-year-olds colored Disney pictures, glued together Olaf from "Frozen," and made really neat Mickey and Minnie silhouette art prints!

The three-year-olds practiced math skills by playing with circles.  They created "Hidden Mickeys," where they glued a Mickey head on paper, then glued red circles over the paper, letting the Mickey head peep out.  We loved this and so did the kids!  They also used their finger tips to create a fingerprint hot air balloon from "Up."

The four-year-olds practiced sorting (a great math activity!) by sorting the characters from Peter Pan into groups of "Flies" and "Doesn't Fly."  They made "Up" balloons as well and folded "Dumbo" hats for the kids!

The five-year-olds crafted magic wands and decorated clear cups to create lanterns, just like Rapunzel's!  They counted colorful Mickey heads and drew pictures of their favorite toys (like in "Toy Story")!

See ya real soon!
