TOT SCHOOL Tuesday: Back-To-Tot School!

Tot School

We welcomed the chance to sit down together after class today and create our Tot School ideas to share. The "Bug" and The "Scout" love the idea of having an audience . . . hmm, I wonder where they get that from? (no comments, lol.)

In the TOT SCHOOL Craft Corner today, the "Bug" helped create a fun craft for learning shapes and colors. We are building a SCHOOL HOUSE using construction paper shapes.


Here is what you will need:



Colors
Paste

Manilla Paper
Various sizes and shapes of construction paper -

1 Yellow Circle, 2 Yellow Squares, 1 Large Red Square, 1 Small Red Square, 1 small purple triangle & 1 small purple rectangle


1. Paste the Large Red Square onto the manilla paper & the 2nd red square above it to form the base for your School House.



2. Next, add your purple triangle to the top of the building make your roof top.


3. Now add your purple rectangle as a door, your 2 yellow squares as a windows & your yellow circle as the sun, of course!



4. Let your tot identify the color and shapes of the items they are working with. Now let them add their own finishing touches. The "Bug" added window panes, a door knob, sunbeams & a school bell!
All that work made me hungry! Join us for TOT SCHOOL Snack Time!


This is one of the "Scout's" favorite snack time recipe.
BUGS ON A LOG

Here is what you will need:

2 stalks of celery cut into 3 inch logs

Peanut Butter

1. Spread the peanut butter in the center of the celery logs.



2. Now take a few raisens to make your bugs crawling on the log.3. Now enjoy the bugs tickling your tummy as you eat.
