Anyways...for those of you following along, here are some highlights from the last three weeks of Alphabet Adventure:
Letter H Week was exciting for Henry as H is his favorite of all of the letters. He has been able to write an H for quite some time now and he loves to spot it everywhere. (He loves to say "H for Henry!")
During H week we read some fun books, including one of my favorites "Hippos Go Beserk" by Sandra Boynton. (Her books are all hilarious.)
I don't have any pictures but we made a "Hug" to send to Uncle Chewy, who is away at college. We got one of these "hugs" in the mail from a friend when Henry had his robot surgery and I thought it was such a cute idea. We traced Henry's Hands (another H word!) and cut them out. Then we "measured his hug" (his armspan) with a colorful ribbon. We attached the hand cutouts to the ends of the ribbon and we had a Henry-sized hug!
This week Henry got to have some letter and number Spaghetti-Os. He got a kick out of looking at what he was about to eat. In this picture he was saying "What letter?!"
For his letter H craft, we made an H out of handprints. Henry really liked this because I let him make a mess after we got his nice handprints done.
He ended up touching his face after painting his hand red. He looked a little like a Halloween haunted house extra.
Poor Letter I week was pretty lame. We were busy getting ready to be away for a week and I just wasn't inspired (incidentally an I word!). We had plans to make ice cream at home (science class style with the salt and ice) but never got around to it. We did read some I books, including a Clifford book called The Ice Race. We made our Letter I craft while at my parents' house so I'm actually in a picture:
J week took place when we were at my parents' house for Thanksgiving so we didn't really do much (not that being home helped out H or I week!). Henry did get to help make a special Jell-O treat:
We also made a neat J Craft inspired by Henry and Grandad's special book "Pout Pout Fish" that has a page where the title character meets a jellyfish. We made a Jellyfish J using construction paper for the body and yarn for tentacles. Henry enjoyed making it and the final product is pretty cute.
