I think I've told you how much I love our toy library and our trip on Friday was no exception. I ran across two things that were perfect for us right now. The first is a "color kit." It was perfect since we have been talking about the color orange. My only complaint would be that all the objects were typically orange. I know there are orange frogs and perhaps lobsters are orangey, but...? Anyway, I thought the idea was a great one though to do at home. Just collect a bunch of objects of one color and place them in a basket together. This wonderful blog has been doing that and creating a photo book of the collections.
My other find was this copy of Stellaluna that came with a bat puppet. I am so glad I ran across it because I love this book and completely forgot about it while learning about bats and owls this past week.
