Hoppy joined in on the fun. (sorry about the blurry pics- I had the camera on the wrong setting)
We also made fingerprint penguins in eggs to practice our counting.
I added beaks and feet once the ink had dried. Eva did a great job putting the right number of penguins in each egg.
On Friday we are going to the zoo for a class on owls. (Please don't let the snow storm that's coming our way be as bad as they are predicting- Eva's heart is set on going to the zoo!) To help us get a better look at the animals, we made binoculars. We started with a paper towel tube (toilet paper tubes would work too) and Eva used her paint pens to decorate it.
Then I cut it in half and used packing tape to hold the two pieces together. After adding a strap, the binoculars were ready to be tested out.
When we were at the library yesterday for story time, we found a few more polar pals books:
