The Fantastic Dr. Seuss and Fun.

Book of the Day:  Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Suess  

Activity: Observing our weather.  Harmony is learning about the different seasons and "cannot wait for fall" (as she tells me).. so we are going to use this weather recording sheet to observe and record our daily weather.  

Word of the day:  
Meteorologist: A person who studies weather and weather conditions.
Harmony has an extremely developed vocabulary so learning new words is fun for her...and us.  :)

My family has been deathly ill with a cold (maybe not to that extreme) so my posts have been non-consistent and disorderly.  I do apologize.  At the beginning of the week, when I thought I was going strong, I decided to get some projects done for Harmony's room while she was in school.  The plaque below was a purchase from the Dollar Tree.. I love the Dollar Tree.. and the beautiful print-out piece of art is from The Free Art Project @ Indie Fixx.  I just applied Mod Podge to the wooden piece, cut out the picture, and then applied it.  It came out so beautiful.  I couldn't be any more pleased, and my daughter loves it too!   

Here's another fun activity that I told you guys we would be doing.  I actually put together this puzzle on Monday, when Harmony was in preschool.  When she came home, I had it wrapped up and ready for her use.  She loved it!  I got the idea from Plaid Kids Craft, which has various fun family oriented projects that provide the level of difficulty.  Go check out their site  "after" you tell me what you think of our puzzle.  ;)

Here's what it looks like after its been fitted and applied with Mod Podge.
I used a utility knife to carefully cut between the sticks.  *Be careful, because I did one section to quickly and it lifted the  picture*

I hope you guys have enjoyed this week.. even though I haven't had too much time outside of blowing my nose and helping my kids blow their's..

Have a great day and Happy Crafting!!
