Five for Friday! Gumballs and rainbows and hats, oh my!

Oh Friday... how I have missed you.  Let's not dilly dally - here's my Five for Friday!

I seem to have accidentally stumbled upon a rainbow themed week!
We made these gorgeous torn paper rainbows....

We made new rainbow rice for the sensory table...

I bought my favourite Enid Blyton books in a set...

and we needed new reading pointers.

This week was all about fun that is funny as we used 'The Cat in the Hat' as our Literacy focus. You can read more about it here.

This week part of our fonics phocus was 'g'.  We made these gorgeous gumball machine crafts.  They were so easy - the stars of the show were some dollar store dot stickers!

New favourite fine motor activity that includes curriculum content?  Uh, this one!  My kidlets were so excited to complete this activity, not sure why but I'm not complaining. :)

I LOVE image quotes.  I mean,  really really love them!  I saw this one on the lovely Mel's FB page and her caption was 'There is room for your dreams too!'.  I got some good news this week (like, AMAZING news!)... turns out that Mel is right and maybe there is some room for a dream I've had for a long time! :)

That's all from me lovely friends.  How was your week? I'd love to hear from you if you have time to leave a comment. :)

  7. Lauren, that Cat in the Hat photo is adorable! I love all the rainbow themed items as well! I'm trying to spread the word - sorry for the shameless plug - I'm starting a new linky party for the summer called Sell It Saturday. I have a smaller blog, but if you're ever interested in joining in, that'd be great!
