We made it to the toy section with just a few stops to admire the awesome blow ups, toys, watches, and whatever else caught their fancy. I looked for things that weren't too expensive, then gave them choices (votes) about which ones to get. We bought some cars, little watches, stuffed bear, and a few other items. As we are going to check out they were doing well, but distracted by the cashier in the self-check out area who was being Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The cart suddenly starts walking away 😨silly kids did they forget I have eyes in the back of my head. 😂 Later I will go to the dollar store, maybe with the littles, to get combs and things to finish the boxes. Hopefully we added some "wow" things today so when the child opens the box they are happy to see just what they have been wishing for. God can move mountains, he can certainly make sure that just the right toy goes in just the right box. 🎁
After shopping we worked on a sequencing story art to retell the story of The Old Woman Who Ate A Pie. Following that was some outside time. We played Hokey Pokey Turkey Style -- Gobble Gobble, rode trikes, raced and played Pilgrim and Turkey, and made nature art on a stick. Soon it was lunch time and rest time.
Our breakfast today was Cinnamon Toast and Pineapple with Milk. Lunch was Chili with Rice, Green Beans, Yellow Squash Casserole (no one's fav apparently), and Milk. Snack is simply Goldfish and Apple Slices.
The picture below is their "nature art on a stick".
