E is for Elephant and D is for Dinosaur

Letter E and D recap.
We are skipping around and doing the letters out of order so that we can arrange some of them to go with the seasons or holidays.

Last week we finished these two letters and had a lot of fun with them, especially the dinosaurs.

For the letter E we had fun reading "Elmer" and painting him many different colors.

One morning we made elephant biscuits, which was a total hit and so incredibly easy.  Biscuits cut in thirds, laid on top of one whole biscuit.  One slice for each ear and one for the trunk.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and tadaaaa elephant biscuits.

Brynn was in heaven with our dinosaur week.  We did so many extra activities with this theme and she was so into it and enjoyed every second.
We followed a pinterest recipe to make dinosaur fossils that we baked in the oven.
Then, I buried them all in the sandbox.  I pulled out some shovels, sand sifters, paint brushes and told her she was a paleantologist and had to find all the fossils and clean them off.  This kept her busy for a solid hour and she even asked to do it the next day again.

I made her dinosaur waffles for breakfast one morning and her face is absolutely priceless. It only takes a few extra minutes to make food fun and festive and its one of my most favorite things to do for the girls.

Sticky mud was another hit.  A little mixture of cornstarch and water, a sprinkle of cocoa powder for some brown color and you have yourself some endless entertainment.

We just wrapped up letter C and are looking forward to P is for pumpkin and everything Halloween next week!!!
