Fun with the Letter A

The boys and I decided to spice summer up a bit.  

For the past couple of weeks we've been going on "field trips", making crafts, and doing other fun stuff featuring a different letter in the alphabet.  

It's forcing me to be a little more creative and is allowing us to do new things!

We started with.......the Letter A!!!!  Surprise!

*Art Museum:  We've done this before, and I loved it.  Especially since the art project Charlie made so awesomely favors the Harry Potter symbol.


*Apple Pie.  Deliciousness.  Found the recipe here and it is oh so good.  And easy!  The boys love making (and eating) treats.


*Apple Printables:  Free (!)  here.  Charlie loved matching, counting, and coloring the apples.


*A featuring Elmo.  No day would be complete in this house without Elmo.  Short, cute video of Elmo talking about the letter A.


*Applesace:  And the cuteness that it's covering.

I'm going to go ahead and take a guess that we won't make it to Z before the summer is over, but for now we are having tons of fun with our letters!

That is a great idea! Maybe I should start that with my son. By the way, never made it to the workshop with E. Ocampo. It was an hour from my aunt's house! I just ended up taking classes at the Houston Met, which was fun (and challenging. Still can't walk today.)
