This week for Tot School/Preschool, we tried out an idea from over at Totally Tots for the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. And even though we didn't even read the book (because we don't own it or know anyone around that does, nor are there libraries to check it out from), I was able to read the first line to Little Punkin' and Sweet Pea from the preview on Amazon, and they have both been going around saying, "Chicka chicka boom boom!"
It's quite catchy.
So, we got out the alphabet cookie cutters and the playdoh. I drew a wonky palm tree on some poster paper and let the girls have fun racing their playdoh letters up the coconut tree. They had a lot of fun! Little Punkin' even said, "Ready, set, go!"
And, since the temperatures have been sky rocketing to over 100 this week, they took an opportunity to swim in their old pool inside of the new pool. We decide to throw in some animals and pretend it was Noah's ark.
Another keep-cool method we used was to enjoy plenty of smoothies and popsicles!
