Letter M is the highlight of our homeschool today. I had so many options of what to do but marshmallows and moose were the name of the game!
These were some of my favorite pictures from the week 🙂 Nothing fancy. Just my sweet little girls hard at work. Fofo’s name starts with M, so they didn’t need a lot of practice writing this letter 😉
My kids love the book “If you give a moose a muffin,” so I knew they would love making some moose antlers. I found the template here and printed it off.
The girls simply painted them brown, and I did the rest by cutting them out and stapling them to brown cardstock. They turned out pretty cute!
While searching for M activities, I found this marshmallow activity on the No Time for Flash Cards blog. It couldn’t be simpler. I roughly drew a rainbow and marked the respective colors for each kind of marshmallow: pink, orange, yellow, and green.
Armed with a bowlful of multi-colored marshmallows, the girls glued the matching marshmallows onto the rainbow. Not without a few thousand “I wish I could each these marshmallows.” Sigh.
Marshmallow Sensory Play
This fun activity came from the blog Fantastic Fun and Learning. I set the girls up with one bin of marshmallows, one bin of cold water, and one bin of hot water.
The girls dove right in. Moving the marshmallows back and forth, squeezing the water out of the them, and eventually adding other toys to the party.
That wraps up some of work for the letter M. For more letter of the week work, click here! What are some of your favorite activities for the letter M? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear them.
