Face Painting

Picture 231

Caleb and I took turns painting on each other’s faces.
I used Snazaroo Face Painting kit for this. Be sure to do a skin test before using 🙂 After a while, he wanted to do it on his own. So I let him paint over the face that I painted.

Here are pics of Caleb painting his own face for the first time.

Caleb tasting the paint.
Maybe he thought it would taste like candy…
Good thing it’s non-toxic.

Posing with mom.
Caleb painted my face and when he was done he said:
“Mommy look like BJ!(from Barney)” and laughed out loud. The sense of humor on this one…hahahaha! 🙂

Sorting Pompoms

Picture 228

Caleb wanted to be included in the picture of the materials for this activity.

You will need:
1. Pompoms with 3 sizes (small, medium and large) I was able to buy mine from the basement of fully booked for Php 35.50 less than $1.
2. containers for sorting
3. plate/tray for putting all the pompoms in

First round of sorting.

I waited until Caleb finished sorting all the pompoms to correct him. I showed him the container with the misplaced pompom and asked him which one didn’t belong. That way, he could easily see the difference and I didn’t interrupt his concentration.

This activity is good for classifying objects according to size and helps in concentration (special thanks to Madame Emerita Villaver for that one).

Second round of sorting. He was much faster this time around and misplaced only one medium sized pompom.

Fresh coconut juice for lunch?
Use whats left over for a scooping activity!
If you don’t have coconuts, any kind of small bowl can be used.

Picture 221

I scraped what was left over from the coconut meat and filled one coconut with water. I used food coloring to color the water green (I let Caleb choose of course!). Then, Caleb used a small soup ladle to scoop the water from one coconut to the other.

Don’t forget to put the coconuts on a tray for easier clean up! There will be a lot of spills!
