It was a little cloudy and overcast yesterday, so I decided to do a Sesame Street theme for our morning activity.
We had a copy of Sesame Street Old School that I got from the library that we hadn't watched yet, so I put one in for us to watch while we colored.
|Sorry for the blurry picture. I've been experimenting with different settings on our camera.|
For our coloring pages, I did a quick search online and found some great resource at PBS.org and the Sesame Street site.
After watching Sesame Street, I pulled out our Sesame Street Treasury book and we read a couple stories before moving on to our next craft.
I love this book because it's a great mix of stories, songs, and poems. And there's also a few kid-friendly recipes thrown-in as well.
For our craft, we gave Big Bird feathers using glue and scrunched up yellow tissue paper. I found the Big Bird pictures at Color Me Crazy. (This site is a TREASURE TROVE of printables - coloring pages and activities. Seriously, go check it out!) This activity was a bit easy for Nani, but she was a great big sister, helping out Nudgie with her scrunching and gluing. Overall - I think the girls had fun doing this.
And the crowning jewel of our morning was the Bert and Ernie fruit plate that I made them for lunch!
|Not quite the effect I was going for. Bert looks like he's bleeding from the mouth, but the girls recognized them. I wonder, though, if they would have recognized them if we weren't doing a Sesame Street day!|
|Nudgie goes right for Ernie's eyes first|
|I don't know -- kinda looked a little like them, don't you think?|
So how many more days of summer vacation do I have left??
