the month of "b"

may (i know...it's WELL beyond the month of may, but better late than never) was brought to you by the letter "b."

more details on our letter months here and here.

here's what we did for the month...

introducing the letter h:

found this bee craft here, though instead of printing the template i just used yellow and black construction paper to make the bee
shape. then we "personalized" it with stick on eyes and pipe cleaner antennas.

we made a butterfly and used mirror painting to decorate. emma also felt the butterfly needed something a little more so she embellished it with little stars after the paint dried. this site gives you helpful directions in mirror paintin
g. i had also planned to do this one since i had saved up lots of TP rolls but we didn't have time.

we made a paper boat out of large construction pa
per, and sang row, row, row your boat as she decorated the boat with paint.

b foods:
we made banana muffins (i had originally planned on banana bread,
but emma wanted muffins)...

...smelled, tasted and cooked with fresh

...made bakso (and threw in some bok choy into our dish)...

...and of course enjoyed a family favorite: bacon.

b themed books we read:
bible, berenstains b book, puppy mudge and his blankie...i know there were 2 or 3 more "b" books we read but may was such a long time ago that i don't recall what they were.

b things we came across day to day:


a blue balloon...

and biking (sorry no photo, but i'm sure you can figure out what to do for that one).

and the grande finale for the month of b...
baby brother!

there were so many more "b" things on my list that we didn't get to do or go over, but there will be a next time. for now, our monthly letter activities will be postponed until september as we enjoy our summer and our new baby.

until next time!

I love all of your "B" activities! I keep meaning to do this with Evie, but I never do. You've inspired me to get with it! Nice job!
