Hanukkah Lights by David Martin, illustrated by Melissa Sweet.
In celebration of the holiday, we are lighting candles, making and eating potato latkes, playing with our stuffed Juday Macabee and more! Pictures will follow as the holiday proceeds.
Let us know how you are celebrating. And if you don't celebrate Hanukkah, that's ok too! Tell us how you are getting ready to celebrate your holiday with your family and friends!!
Here is one way we like to celebrate: making Hanukkah cookies!!

Then Little Girl decided that she should also share the reading fun. This is a lift the flap book, and she loves pulling the flaps. (And ripping them, but we are trying to curb that...) As she was reading with Baby, she gave Baby a turn opening the flaps to see what was hidden!

While the tea party is coming soon (when we visit Savta next week that will be a great time!), we did start with our art and counting fun. With my "expertly drawn" outline in hand, Little Girl got to color her own Miss Spider, and we practiced our counting by gluing all eight legs onto her.
Best of all, at least to me, Little Girl is learning to share her love of reading and decided that her baby doll (aptly named "Baby") wanted to color, too.

Keep reading, and hopefully by the middle of October things will have calmed down enough for us to get back into the swing of things!

While I know that Little Girl is still a little too little to do too many arts and crafts projects, that doesn't stop me from trying! So I decided we would make a hungry caterpillar together. I cut out rough ovals of colored papers and put scrapbooking mounting squares on the backs. Then I let her stick the pieces where she wanted to on the paper. Sure, there was a lot of picking them back up, and I did have to re-stick the piece with a glue stick when she was done, but it worked really well! Once the pieces were down I drew on the caterpillar's eyes and antennae, and Little Girl colored whatever she wanted, and added some buggie stickers.
I can't honestly tell you which one of us had more fun, but I can promise that fun was had!There will be more coming from us, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Little Girl and I had the opportunity to feed our very own Very Hungry Caterpillar! Using an egg-carton caterpillar and her plastic toy food, we let the very hungry guy eat whatever he wanted...!
(Pictures coming soon... I thought they were on the computer, but I can't find them...!)
