Chiplet Adventures (part 15): Letter J Week

We are still here doing much of our usual routine, although the letter crafts have gotten spread out a bit more since I’m also working on the Fudgelet’s schoolwork while he is out of school for the next indefinite time period. We have also been going outside a bunch, partially since the Fudgelet normally gets two recesses a day, partially that we aren’t able to go anywhere and it helps to break up the day, and also because it has been so nice out. After a very dark January, we are still wanting to soak up sunshine.

But now, let’s talk about letter J!

Chiplet Adventures (part 14): Letter R week

Sometimes we go out of order, depending on what the Chiplet is in the mood to make. For this week, we started with lowercase r.

Chiplet Adventures (part 6): Letter P Week

You might be able to see that these pictures were from October with the decorations. We were definitely scaled back this week because we had my dad and M visiting, so we were doing more outings and activities with them. We still managed to get letter P in, and he was happy with what we planned.

Fudgelet Adventures (part 15): More simple crafts

Are you tired of seeing crafts and toddler activities? Hopefully not. If so, see you next blog post! If not, then welcome back! We made a bunch of crafts and did different activities to help break up the winter days when we were stuck home for various reasons (cold/yucky weather, napping Chiplet, friends being sick, etc.). Here are two that were very simple. The first is because the Fudgelet said he wanted to make an alligator craft. We went on Pinterest to get some ideas, and combined some to make this…

Fudgelet Adventures (part 8): Baking and Painting

Just a quick little post today with some fun the Fudgelet and I had back in the spring. Yes, I probably could switch to 3 posts a week on here to keep things closer to when they happen, but…well, I’m also trying to keep my normal writing routine going strong so that I can maybe get lots of posts lined up for post-new baby arrival. Last time I think I scheduled for about 1 or 2 months after the Fudgelet’s arrival, so we shall see if I can do at least that. Still lots of new recipes coming, too.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: Leaf Painting (and more)

Something simple for today. Obviously we are in Winter and there aren’t leaves all around to do this now. Sooo, this will have to be something you save. Or you could use other objects and do the same idea. Basically, the Fudgelet and I picked up some leaves on our way home from a walk (we had gone to a toddler activity in the neighborhood). I wrapped them in plastic wrap to keep them a bit fresh and flat until we were ready to use them.
