For some reason E week is lacking in pictures so I am combining it with P week. Usually, I introduce the ABC’s to my 3 year olds in alphabetical order but I could not let fall pass us by without doing P is for pumpkin. We had a lot of fun with both letters!
We decorated our letter of the week with egg shell that we colored ourself.
About a half a cup of water, a tablespoon or two of vinegar, and Sunshine Girl’s color of choice, and we were ready to dye our egg shells.
We usually read Green Eggs and Ham and then have a breakfast of green eggs and ham BUT Sunshine Girl wanted no part of green eggs so we had regular, ole’ yellow eggs. This picture of green eggs is actually from The Princess’ letter E week about 2 or 3 years ago.
Sadly, that is all that I’ve got for letter E week. It was just one of those kind of weeks…
However, Letter P…
A purple, polka-dotted letter P,
Making a felt pizza,
Making real pizzas for lunch,
Pig Pancakes (sort of)…
notice the food trend ;-)
(Another great find this week: Home Grown Hearts. )
