🇺🇸Happy Memorial Day!🇺🇸
Today we remember all the men and women who have fought and made sacrifices for our country so we can enjoy our freedoms. Thank you! 🇺🇸❤️
Last week was the kickoff week to The Seals Summer Fun Theme Weeks. Our first theme was Kids in the Kitchen where we had fun making fun and tasty new recipes. In addition to our fun theme, we also incorporated learning activities. Last week we focused on colors, shapes, and the letters A & B.
We made Munchy Madness Sandwiches. The kids enjoyed making the sandwiches more than they enjoyed eating the sandwiches.
All you need to make Munch Madness Sandwiches is: bread, peanut butter, bananas, raisins, and honey. Layer, combine, and enjoy. (We refrigerated ours for about an hour before we ate them.)
My main goal is for the kids to have fun while working on following directions, working on hand/eye coordination, and trying new foods.
Tessa loved the sandwich, Brady wouldn’t even try it 🙄, Brant ate the bananas 🍌, Gracie took everything off and ate the bread with peanut butter, Mia took two bites, and Rayleigh nibbled a few bites.
We read books…
We work on colors, shapes, and letters.
We made Protein Cookies.
Here’s the recipe.
The kids love to help me cook. And I enjoy involving them in these cooking activities.
On Wednesday we skipped cooking and went to the dentist, the mall to play, and bowling. All of us were worn out by the time we got home. Oh and we went to church that night.
Thursday mornings are pancake day at the Seals house. So I let the kids help me make Ultimate Chocolate Chip Pancakes. The recipe is on the back of the Bisquick box.
I try to make learning fun for Brady. When he gets tired, we stop.
We skipped our cooking activity and the kids played outside all morning. Then they went to Nana’s house while their big girl beds were delivered and assembled. I’ll do a separate post on the beds. 😉
It was a fun week and a great way to start the summer. We didn’t do everything we’d planned for the week but that’s okay. We still have plenty of time to get to everything I have planned. My motto this summer is no rules. We are just going with the flow and aren’t going to worry about having to do everything right on time.
