Tot School...Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Our first week of Tot School for this school year was amazing!
The theme was a favorite, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

*I love these new tot trays that I found at the Dollar Tree this summer!*

So, what's on the shelf?

#1. Sensory Bin

Rice, scoop (from Dollar Tree), cute little palm tree from her Nativity set, and Melissa and Doug alphabet puzzle.

Rice plus letters equals...

One happy little girl!

#2. Matching Color Clothespins

Trees found here.

Paint samples from Lowe's glued onto clothespins...great fine motor activity!

Mac liked matching the colors, but had a difficult time attaching the clothespins.

#3. Magnetic Fun

Coconut tree printout and magnetic puff balls.
Craft balls from Dollar tree; hot glued magnet on back.

#4. Chicka Tree with alphabet stickers from Target

Another simple activity for fine motor skills!

She really likes stickers, so she did this activity twice!

When finished, she practiced singing her ABC song!

And was very proud of herself!

#5. Alphabet puzzle from Target's dollar aisle.

Divided by capital and lowercase letters. Least favorite activity on the shelf.

#6. Leap Frog Tag Jr. ABC book

Favorite activity on shelf this week!

I found her reading several times throughout the day!

Other fun activities included:

Special coconut tree snack! Peanut butter, banana, and apples.

Chicka tree coloring printout, which was a great tool for peek-a-boo!

Watching the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom video (at least 100 times).

Listening to the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom song, while coloring this printout.

Alphabet stamp art project.

Working alphabet puzzles!

Melissa and Doug alphabet puzzle

And, another alphabet puzzle!

She also enjoyed playing this game with Big Sis!

Learning how to pump her legs on the big girl swing was a major accomplishment this week!

Finally, her favorite activity of the week...

Taking apart and putting back together the alphabet floor puzzle!

  1. Great activities!! I wish my tot would show interest in her tag jr. She hates it with a passion. LOL

  2. What a fun week! I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never really loved the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, but you sure make it look fun! I may have to check it out from the library and read it again!
