Last week we read The Big Green Pocketbook! It was such a fun story about a mom and little girl and their morning running errands together!
We had fun painting with green paint and making our own green paint out of blue and yellow:
Our town does not have a city bus, but we drove to a nearby city that does - I found green purses at Goodwill to surprise my little ladies with:
We walked to the post office and each bought a stamp for a thank you card we made the painted pictures into:
walked to the bank and did a deposit into their savings account:
stumbled upon a CVS! Yeah for free toothbrushes!
Had a treat at Starbucks - thanks Aunt Carrie for the gift card; mmmmm a chocolate donut:
Next we caught the bus and rode it to the mall where we had lunch at Chick-Fil-A (also a gift card):
picked out soap at Bath & Body Works (another gift card!):
and read books at Barnes & Noble:
We went to the bus stop to wait for our ride back to the car and took another ride:
Samuel spent the day in the stroller - just taking it all in: what an agreeable baby!
What a fun and busy day!
Another day, we made pocketbook cookies - don't have a purse cookie cutter? Me either, but Mrs. Potato Head's purse worked just fine! :)
We made icing from blue and yellow food coloring to reinforce the fact that green can be made from these colors and decorated with green sprinkles.
We talked about other things from the book as well - what a fun week!
