We started the day baking button biscuits. We used a gingerbread recipe and some circle and b shaped cookie cutters. The buttons are easy to make with a straw to cut the holes We also made some b biscuits. Once they were finished we decorated them with button sweets.
Bird and Butterfly Spotting
While the biscuits were cooling we headed out to spot some birds and butterflies. The girls used their spotter books. The found a lot of sparrows and a couple of gulls and some cabbage white butterflies. When we got home they pained some birds and butterflies using the books to help. We hung the pictures on the washing line to dry.
B is for butterfly themed lunch
As it was lunch we enjoyed a butterfly themed lunch.
A great activity for practicing fine motor skills is bead threading. The girls love to do this and it really helps if you use a pipe cleaner as it makes it so much easier. I twisted some pipe cleaners into letter b’s for them to thread the beads onto.
B is for bag play dough
I made the girls some pretty pink play dough and they used it to make bags using pipe cleaners and sparkly gems.
The twins practiced writing b’s using buttons.
