Only 1 More Day…

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.  🙂

Tostada Turkey Lunch

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.  🙂

blogThey were yummy.  Raptor even ate the lettuce.  #winning


Turkey Math Game

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.
