Tot School: Welcome Spring!!

This past week has been all about Spring!  The weather, how we dress, flowers, rainbows and bugs. 
Here's some of what we did:

Table Time:
  1. Spring collage
  2. Fruit loop rainbow
  3. Traced hands and made flowers
  4. Created a bug jar-put bug stickers all over a plastic peanut contained
  5. Painted a bug rock
Floor time:

  1. Spring sensory bin-colored macaroni, Easter eggs, misc. bowls/containers, basket, spoons, tongs, etc.  They loved this!  They sorted the macaroni, placed it in different containers, placed it in eggs for shakers, and took apart and matched back up the eggs.
  2. Flower Shop-cash register, phone, real and fake flowers, containers/vases, dirt, watering can, flower magazines
  3. Bug Hunt-We caught several bugs but "Miss Priss" didn't want to leave any in her bug jar.  As soon as I put them in there she let them out!
  4. Bug puzzles

The Itsy Bitsy Spider
Arky, Arky

Snacks:Snow cones
Flower cupcakes-We used our Easter Candy Corn for the petals and then put pink, purple, and yellow sprinkles in the center.


  1. What Makes a Rainbow by Betty Ann Schwartz
  2. I Am a Rainbow by Dolly Parton- this is a book we received free from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library
  3. 10 Little Ladybugs by Melanie Gerth
  4. Read from our Bible Story Book - Noah and the Ark

Creating Fruit Loop Rainbow

Playing in the Spring Sensory Bin - We soon moved it to the floor!

Creating Bug Jar - Got a little carried away with the stickers!

Next week is Spring Break around here so we'll be off-schedule.  Our plans are to start our resurrection eggs, do some activities with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and maybe even a trip to the zoo!
