K is for...Kitten Fun

Cristi from Through the Calm and Through the Storm and Meg from Adventures with Jude are hosting this great weekly party called Blogging Through the Alphabet. All are welcome to join in, just make sure to keep your posts family-friendly. I am determined to stay faithful this time around. I might not always post on the same day of the week, but I have every intention to post something each week.

Here is how I decided my "theme" for this round of Blogging Through the Alphabet. As I was going through old blog posts recently, I noticed I have some neat ideas for activities and crafts that I did with in the past. Unfortunately, I always included them in my weekly wrap up posts or more recently in Poppins Book Nook posts, so they sort of got buried. I can't really share them as individual activities or create pinnable images to promote them and share my ideas, which is why I started this blog in the first place (to share my ideas with others who work with children). So, I am going to make new posts for these ideas.

I have found there is a huge benefit in this strategy. I am remembering  ideas that I had forgotten, which means I can now do these activities with the younger children. I will be sharing the old pictures and possibly sharing new pictures of the younger children participating.

K is for Kittens

Several years ago, we were up to the letter K and I found a cute version of Three Little Kittens  written by Jerry Pinkney.  The illustrations were beautiful and the story is cute.  Though I have to warn you, the story is told quite a bit differently.

 I then found a free lapbook activity over at Homeschool Share.  The girls needed to color and cut out some mittens. 

Then I hid them around the living room.  Amelia then took a turn hiding them from me.  I did decide to just use these as activities instead of a lapbook.

Then the girls cut apart the pages and glued the little pictures that I had printed out from Homeschool Share.  I then decided to ask the girls if they wanted to make pie.  So we made a nice simple chocolate peanut butter pudding pie. I follow the instructions on the box of instant chocolate pudding.  Except I usually double the recipe, add a 1/4 more milk and add 3-4 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter.  Then I add chopped up Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.  The girls took their turn cutting them.

And adding the pudding mix.

Then they added the chopped up candy when I was done mixing it.

I told the girls they could eat the pie for dessert at dinnertime while wearing some mittens.

 Yes, they soiled their mittens.
