Here are a few pictures of the game I came up with for Candy Land Theme Week.
I attached balloons to beanbags. I wrote numbers and letters on the balloons using a sharpie. Then I made alphabet cards with the same letter that were on the balloons.
The younger children got to choose an alphabet card out of the bag. I gave them a bean bag and they had to find the balloon with the same letter on it. They then threw the bean bag at the balloon.
With the older children also chose an alphabet card,but I didn't let them look at it. Instead they were given the letter sound and had to find the balloon with the corresponding letter on it!
Michael and I went to Findlay Market to have waffles at our favorite place! Taste of Belgium has the best waffles I've ever had! If you are in Cincy you should give them a try. Be warned..they are addicting!
Michael was given a huge collection of National Geographic magazines. He is having a lot of fun going through all the issues.
