Happy Father's Day to all the incredible dads out there! This week it is D is for DADDY for the obvious reasons. (Ww will also do D for DISCOVERY) next week. But this week all of our love goes out to our best daddy in the world! All day Friday we spent making this book about Daddy and S. I planned each page so that she could participate in making it and composed a silly but touching poem for it (it is in Russian because it is the language we speak at home) I told S. that it was a secret and that we have to wait till Sunday, but as soon as Daddy came home she whispered in his ear that she has a surprise for him. She said: "I didn't tell him what it was, but can we give it to him today?" How could I say no? 😋😍 So she explained each page to him as he turned the pages. It was a fun project that created a memory and a keepsake - win win! . . . .
Here’s what we’re reading for the next two weeks as we study plants that become food! But actually... we’re moving next week so we have to return all these in 10 days. So really here’s what we thought we’d be reading for the next two weeks when I planned this whole unit months ago! We will still do our unit study this week but all bets are off for next week! #momtessorilife#botanystudy#movingwithkids
Happy Father's Day to the man who is always willing to change a diaper, read books with way better voices and accents then I could ever come up with, and who totally wins at coming up with the most fun games and routines for Charlie! 😘💛 you're the most amazing father to our sweet boy! My favorite thing is watching you two together. I could not do this whole motherhood thing without you. Thanks for loving us so well every day! We love you so much! ✨ #fathersday#dontforgetdads
Happy Father's Day to all those amazing dads out there!

We've just started a week of vacation at the beach, one of my happy places! 🏖It's the perfect place to kick of this week's theme. This week for the #FFLideas playful learning challenge we're sharing hands-on, playful ideas inspired by SUMMER. 😎Throughout the week we'll share a few of favorite summer activities. We'll also be looking for the ideas you share. Remember to tag @fantasticfunandlearning and use #FFLideas so we're sure to see them! Each week I also try to share a couple of low-prep activities to kick off the week. That way even if you are crazy busy you can join in the fun. LOW-PREP IDEAS For this week try these... 1) MAKE A SUMMER BUCKET LIST: At the beginning of each season it has become one of our traditions to make a bucket list. I let the girls drive this and come up with the most memorable ideas they want to do again from years' past, and then we sprinkle in a few new things. We focus on experiences here, and it makes for a great summer! You can take a peak at some summer bucket list inspiration via the profile link today. 2) MAKE POPSICLES: Tie it a bit of science and creativity and come up with your own popsicle recipes to try throughout the summer. 3) PLAY IN THE SPRINKLERS: This is a classic for a reason! Kids of all ages have fun playing in the hose or sprinklers. You can even teach them how to make a rainbow with the hose for a little bit of science! If you don't already have the free printable montly activity calendar, pop over to www.fantasticfunandlearning.com and be sure to get on our email list. Each month we'll send out a new activity calendar so you will know what themes are coming and get some activity ideas to get ready in advance. Can't wait to see what you have to share this week! Happy summer! earlylearning #preschoolactivities#iteachprek#iteachk#homeschool#homepreschool#preschoolathome#homeschoolpreschool#preschoolfun#alphabet#abcs#preschoolthemes#summer#summerfun#summerwithkids
