Our Letter M crafts and activities:
Monday Paige made this maraca. It is a water bottle that she put beans and noodles in and then I put a toilet paper roll on the handle and paper on the outside for her to decorate. Every so often she would ask if Nate or I wanted music and if we said yes she would shake it for us.
This one she did completely on her own. She knew we were doing the letter M for the week and she told me that mouse started with M. So right after breakfast she drew the mouse and got paint out. She even got black and white out because she knew mixed together it made gray. After the paint dried she decorated it and drew on it. I had no guidance in this one at all and she did amazing. I love my little artist.
Then Tuesday she had some macaroni and cheese for lunch.
She also made a paper bag mermaid. Later in the day she made another puppet that was her and we both did little puppet shows.
She also glued macaroni noodles onto a cardboard M and then painted them.
Wednesday she made some mittens.
And we did some M & M math. She put all the M & Ms on and then added them up herself and wrote the numbers herself. Then we all got to enjoy eating some.
Thursday she made this mountain.
Friday and Saturday were busy days so yesterday we did a monster day.
We did a monster matching game.
Counting her matches.
And she also did a build your own monster. I printed this off from Pinterest and in the packet there was a couple of bodies, lots of eyes and mouths, and some arms and legs. We put together a few different combinations and she thought it was pretty silly.
