Letter of the week - E

So first off....YAY GIANTS!!!!

This week we focused on E (for Eli, not really, but had to throw that out there)!

My little peanut is 24 months old.

Coming off of an Elmo Party last week, E week turned into Elmo week.  We had some left over Elmo cupcakes and balloons that fit perfectly with our "E" theme.  Don't you just LOVE when things work out like that?  

We started the week by hanging up our letter of the week sign and finding the magnetic "E".  We also spelled "E-L-M-O".

Can you guess what our felt board had this week?  Yup, you guessed it ELMO!  I told you we did a lot with Elmo this week:)

I cut out Elmo's head from red felt pretty much free hand.  I drew on the mouth and eyes with a black Sharpie marker.  My little one knew exactly who it was!   

She insisted on wearing her Elmo pajamas and taking a picture next to him.

We colored again, although less then in previous weeks, and made an "E" book with our finished pictures to look over.

My little peanut got dot paints for her birthday (thanks Keira!!) so we broke them out this week.  She LOVED using them on her "E" sheets.

Our craft this week was again Elmo centered.  I actually really liked how he turned out.  I wish I thought of doing this activity at her birthday party...oh well there is always next year!

Here we are painting a paper plate red.

Once the paint was dry, we added an orange nose and white eyes with black eyeballs - all cut from construction paper.

I drew on the mouth with a black sharpie.

Isn't he cute??

She was so proud!!

I had really hoped to make some elephant crafts that I had pinned here, but we just didn't get a chance to.  Next time...

Have a great week!!
