I am trying to help Emily recognise her name so our letter activities have been slowly spelling her name. Today we were up to L so I decided that after dropping Alexander off at school we would begin our task.
She didn’t want to leave at first because they were playing with water at preschool but I promised painting at home so home we went after a small detour. We found some leaves at our detour and at home and got to painting. We were doing L is for leaf and I decided we would try leaf prints. Emily loved painting the leaves, covering them completely with paint that sometimes not always the best print was gained, but oh well. I enjoyed painting and pressing too. She had found a very large leaf that we used to make the background as it was too big for the letter L.
We also discovered L is for love to and because she was very much into painting we painted the cardboard red (she said she loved pink but we were out of pink by then so red was close). We then chose photos on the computer (thank you for the idea No Time for Flash Cards) and printed them out, I had fun cutting them into different shapes and Emily tried to apply as much glue as she could get on.
