|Lacing a Balloon Lacing Card|
|Sensory Balloons - |
I filled some balloons up with various materials
(rice, beans, sugar, coffee grounds, nuts)
and he enjoyed feeling them all.
|We used inflated balloons to paint a printed picture of a hot air balloon.|
The kids watched the hot air balloons take to the skies almost every morning via one of our local channels coverage. There were also a couple of days where the balloons flew right over our house!
We went last Saturday to one of the Balloon Glows - a nighttime event at which you get to see all the balloons light up together as they stay stationary on the ground. There was a cool fireworks show afterwards as well.
Books & Movies
Age appropriate books about hot air balloons (or balloons in general!) were a bit hard to find, but this is what I managed to rustle up from the library. A few were a little too long and had to be edited, but he still enjoyed the pictures! We also watched Up!, which was the perfect movie for this theme.
That's all for this week! To see what other toddlers are learning this week, check out the official Tot School Website!
