Mother Goose Time Bug Blitz Part 2

In my last post, I described the boxes that I'm currently trying to make my way out of. Here is a picture for reference. I know just the sight of this will get very some of you the anxiety of thirty cups of coffee.

In spite of the boxes and the moving and the complete upheaval of our lives, I was able to find my Bugs and Crawly Things Mother Goose Time box and have a three-hour long Bug Blitz.


On hour two the kids started getting a bit fussy with each other. And by "fussy" I mean that they were ready to tackle each other in competition for these manipulatives that were included in this month's MGT box. The stress of moving does strange things to people... :)

Strong B has quite a love for building things. It turns out that Tiny B might be picking this up from him! Where there wasn't interest before, there is now.

They took the pieces and copied the pictures (an important visual/fine motor skill). This type of activity lends instead to future writing skills for Strong B and even the current writing skills that Tiny B has worked so hard apon.






In hour three, Tiny B still wanted to get her Mother Goose Time on, and therefore I brought out a Praying Mantis Invitation to Create. Strong B had vacated to the backyard in search of real praying mantises. 

For the second time today, she created a work of art that I would never have envisioned myself. And a million times better than what I wouid have made. 

Don't you just love it?


Stay tuned for more posts as I work my way through our moving boxes.
