E - Day

We did so many fun things for our E Day! I had barely introduced the subject when Little Miss piped up - "I have an E in my room! Come on, I'll show you!"

She was off and running to retrieve the rather large and rather pink E shown in the picture. She kept it out all day to show daddy when he got home.

First, we colored. I know, we color a lot. But Little Miss loves it, and as I've said before - it does promote fine motor skill development. So bring on the coloring! I found an array of images on a google search - and she chose to color the Easter Egg one...

Then we talked about body parts that start with the letter e - eyes, ears, and elbows...accompanied by singing an all-time classic - "Do your ears hang low?", with actions...

For lunch we had egg tortillas - one of our fav's! But really, I think I could put just about anything in a "portiya" and Little Miss would eat it...

After naptime we were going to make an elephant puppet - but sadly I didn't have any brown paper lunch instead we practiced our gluing and scissor skills...

Other E things we did - but failed to take pictures of...
  • Took a ride on an elevator
  • watched Elmo - of course
  • learned about and found a place to hear our echoes
Happy E Day!

  1. This is the most clever, creative learning idea! I can only imagine that these kinds of activities make a huge impression on her mind and that "E" will be very easy to remember come school.


I love comments! It helps me to know what you're interesed in and what you would like to learn about. It also gives me the chance to get to know you better & find more qualified moms to be guest bloggers!
