Twin Tot School #22: C is for Caterpillar...

Will and Wesley are 40 months old.

We are moving right along in our letter curriculum from Confessions of a Homeschooler. We did lots of activities from there, but apparently I didn't get many pictures. However, this activity was a huge hit. The big kids were even eager to get in on the crafting:

God knew I'd need two little brothers to keep them from fighting over one, but it sure was a surprise to me!
It's a success if Will actually participates!

One big letter C plus some pom poms, eyes and pipe cleaners give you a darling caterpillar C!
We also went to their first library story time. They did well considering how, ummmm, not toddler friendly (to be nice) the librarian was...

but we were thrilled to find their favorite books- CLIFFORD!
And C is for Clifford! We had also just gotten hair Cuts and it made Wesley look so much older, sniff, sniff...

The best part of C is for caterpillar week was that we got real caterpillars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The boys were fascinated and had to see them several times a day. Then they were in awe when they went in their Chrysalis:

How intent is sweet Will????
He'd sit and watch them forever. I can't wait for him to see them emerge as butterflies!!!

I also made up a silly caterpillar song and love to see them tickling each other:

We had a fun week of caterpillar fun. Go check out what other tots are up to at Carissa's blog.
