This month, our alphabet soup letter was d. We made dinosaurs out of the letter, had lots of books with D words and learned a new dinosaur rhyme.
We also did some fun things on our window. We used markers to colour and put foam pieces into water and then stuck them on.
Our playroom theme this week was jungle. We made paper plate snakes, read a Diego book and learned a new jungle song.
The Animals in the Jungle Say
(Sung to: The Wheels on the Bus)
The parrots in the jungle say squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk
The parrots in the jungle say squawk, squawk, squawk, all day long.
The monkeys in the jungle say ooh, ooh, ohh….
The tigers in the jungle say grr, grr, grr…
This week was St. Patrick’s Day week at playroom. We only did one craft this week since we just had babies at the playroom on Tuesday. On Wednesday though we did some paint stamping using cut peppers so they looked like shamrocks. We had grapes and green yogurt for snack.
It was an all things green kind of week.
This week our theme was monsters and we made squish painting monsters. I love this craft because you are never sure what you will get and they turned out great. You just fold a piece of paper in half, drop paint on one side, fold the paper back over and press down. Open up the paper and see what you got. We added eyes to make them look like monsters. The kids got to decide how many eyes they thought their monsters needed.
We continued on with our alphabet soup theme. This week we made a bird out of the letter “b”.
The snack was from the Alphabet Soup in Motion handbook.

Mix the cream cheese and yogurt with dill and onion powder. Spread mixture onto tortilla and sprinkle on veggies. Roll up into a wrap.
