Post office pretend play

I go to the post office a lot mailing orders for my tutu business and my daughter is fascinated with it. She always ask lots of questions and thought it would be fun to play that at home. So I set up a post office for her with a cash register, stamps, envelopes, a Mail box and lots to draw with. I also put her address, a list of family and friends names and common post office words on the wall.I also set up a couple more stations throughout the down stairs for her to deliver the mail, using her bike and a large reusable tote bag to carry the mail. she loved it and delivers things to daddy and her stuff animals and babies. I got the idea for the mail box here.

To make the MAIL box I used and old cereal box and cut a hole in it then spray painted it black cause I didn't have blue and cut out the letters and glued it on. another way to reuse

Valentine's candy hearts graph

I made a Valentine's candy hearts graph to introduce graphing. This also focus on sort and count the colors of hearts in the box of candy. I made this out on construction paper using a ruler and pen very simply made. I wrote all the colors in the bottom and then colored the box that color. When I was a kid there was white ones in the box to, H was surprise and very curious on why she didn't find them in the box.

Organizing muffin tin Monday stuff

My cabinets have been so junky with stuff falling out cause of all the muffin tin Monday stuff, so I decided to start organizing. I used a fishing tackle box organizer to hold picks and skewers and a clear jar to hold the smaller cookie cutters and silicon muffin cups. The space is much cleaner and I can get to and find everything faster and easier.
