Can we have a Foto Friday on a Sunday? 22 Month Old A. made Christmas gifts and cards for her friends. With a little help of pre-measured ingredients and finishing touches by Mommy, A. was able to do a lot the work herself to make these beautiful Bird Seed Ornaments.
Pour flour, water, gelatin, and corn syrup into bowl. Give it a good stir.
Pour in the bird seed. Stir it all together.
Scoop into Christmas cookie cutters.
Insert straw pieces and leave to harden.
Tie a piece of ribbon through the hole. Hang on a tree outside for the birds to enjoy.
Don’t forget a card! Crayons and dot stickers allowed A. to add her personal touch.
Remember back in January how Christie shared with us that R. and P. had started attending Parent/Infant Class at Aid to Life Education? See how these boys have grown since then! They recently attended their last day in the Infant room.
P. and R. sit down on the bench upon arrival to remove shoes and socks. Dad watches over R. as he uses the Peg Box. Christie/Mom watches P. as he uses the crayons. R. enjoys a snack at the end of class. Time to go home. P. puts on socks and shoes with some assistance.
It is time for R. and P. to move up to the Toddler Room! I’m sure Mom and Dad will continue having fun during these Parent/Toddler classes.
