Tuesday Teachings - The Letter P

Another week, another letter. Download your Letter P by clicking on the link.

Some words that start with P: Princess, Pout, Push, Pack, Part, Play, Pop, Postal, Power, Pull, Pray, Piranha and Picture.

For our P activities we focused on Paper, Pasta and Pumpkins.

First we cut up squares of paper and glued them onto our letter P. Since it is Fall, we focused on Fall colors.

For our next project we made a stencil with a wooden candle holder from the craft section and dipped the bottom in orange paint and stamped Pumpkin shapes on letter P. Once that paint had dried, I went back and drew the stems on to the pumpkins.

Our next project was again Pumpkins but this time we tried using our finger dipped in paint. It was going well until he realized it would be more fun to have all of his hand in the paint at the same time. I just want to keep it real and let you know everything does not go as planned in out household.

Our final project was gluing colored Penne Pasta onto a letter P. I colored the Pasta the same way I did the rice on September 9th.

Foods that start with P: Pancakes, Peaches, Peanuts, Pears, Peppers, Plums, Plantains and Pork.

We decide to make two P foods, Pizza and Pigs in a Blanket.

They were both delicious. Since most people know how to make pizza, I will not post on that but for our Pigs in Blankets, I just used Crescent Roll dough with each triangle cut in half and rolled them around cocktail wieners with cheese and baked by the package of Crescent Roll directions. My son loved both foods.
