Totschool: F is for Feet

I chose "feet" for the theme for F week to match with the story of the lame man in the Temple whom Peter and John healed in the name of Jesus. However, there really isn't a lot of activities for "feet". So the kids wound up with not a lot on their shelves. So mostly, they chose coloring and stamping this week.

Abbie also enjoyed sticking happy feet stickers on paper.

She really really loved making animal tracks in the "snow". The animals are Toob animals that I found at Michaels (using 50% coupons) and the snow is sugar. We had sugar e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e! It was all over the table, all over the chairs and the floor, on other people's work. The animals were crusted with it. It was all over hands, faces, and clothes. And eventually, the rest of it wound up all over Abbie's insides. By the end of the week, the sugar had "mysteriously" disappeared!

The rest of her work was not feet related. She played Alphabet Bingo, of course. She made a fish with pattern blocks. (I found this at Prekinders.) When she first got it out she declared, "I need help! I can't do this!" But I told her just to match the shapes, and so she got to work. How proud of herself she was when she finished!

She also enjoyed sorting these glass rocks.

What a cute idea with the sugar and animals, so funny that it "disappeared" lol. Great job on the blog look, very pretty and fall-ish. :)
