We talked a lot about food and healthy choices and what should be eaten in moderation. The boys had fun looking through the grocery ad and cutting out the things they would choose to eat. After that we talked about their choices.
Making circle caterpillars.....
After the caterpillars were finished Asa decided to do an extension of the activity....and Silas joined him. They found another grocery ad and decided that since it was a hungry caterpillar they should feed it. They glued some food into each circle section. Kept them busy for a LONG time. Love it when they come up with their own ideas and have the time to see it through to the end (one of the reasons I love homeschooling).
Working on a caterpillar to butterfly puzzle. These boys LOVE puzzles.
We made cupcakes for C (yeah for me in the kitchen!), and then frosted them to look like the hungry caterpillar.
Explode the Code (I LOVE ETC!!)
Working with pattern blocks
I wanted them to see something tangible that they were giving. We had a lot of fun with these. They helped shop for what went in the box, stuffed the box, and learned why we put things in like soap/washclothes, toothbrush/toothpaste, socks, etc. We got everything at the Dollar Tree (good stuff too...candy, water bottles, art supplies, bubbles, little animals, slinkies, balls, etc) and invested everything we would have into adopting a family into three boxes.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful autumn!! Happy blogging!
