Until Raptor and I are off for a week! I had the Teacher Talent Show last night and between that, Raptor’s ear infection, and, well, incubating 2 babies, I dont have anything super exciting to post today. So, I leave you with a link to my Thanksgiving Pinterest Board. I’m planning on doing some fun Thanksgiving activities with Raptor next week. 🙂
In twin news, it looks like we’re having a boy and a girl! We’re so excited. My other big goal next week is to make some serious progress cleaning out the room that will be there nursery so I can convince RaptorDad to paint it. I’m thinking teal and orange. With an octopus theme. It’ll be cuter than it sounds, promise. 🙂
While I was looking through my Thanksgiving pinterest board, I saw bunches of cute lunches like this one. I’m just not a sandwich girl though. So Raptor and I decided to make tostada turkeys. 🙂
They were yummy. Raptor even ate the lettuce. #winning
Raptor and I decided that we needed some new Thanksgiving stuff. After taking a look at my pinterest board, I decided on this turkey math game. But of course, we have no M&Ms because, duh, I ate them all. 😉 I decided to cut it all out of construction paper and laminate it. I also simplified the rules a bit since Raptor is only 5.
The turkey is preassembled (and laminated), then the feathers are laminated separately. I made 6 cards (I’m thinking of bringing this over to the ILs on Thanksgiving for Raptor to play with her cousins) and I made 9 feathers for each turkey. That’s a lot of feathers y’all.
The way you play is this, you roll 2 dice (die?) and then add them together. That’s me sneaking in the math. 😉 If you roll between 2-5, you can add a yellow feather to your turkey. Between 6-8, you can add an orange feather. Between 9-12, you can add a red. Whoever makes their turkey first, wins!
It was a hit over here.
