Suggested Activities:

• Bible Story Activities:  
- ABC Book:  Use blue watercolor to paint the Jesus worksheet.
  
• Color Activities:  
Color Handprints  For the next 11 weeks, the child will be creating a Handprint Wall.  Each week create the colored handprint (this week is blue) by painting the child's hand (or foot) and stamping it onto a piece of white paper.  Write the name of the color on the handprint.  Display it at the child's level to point and discuss the colors.

• Shape Activities:  
Coffee Filter Shape  Coffee-Filter Shapes - Using a washable blue marker, draw a thick-lined circle on a coffee filter.  Spray water on the filter which will cause the ink to bleed.  Let dry. 

• Animal Activities:   
- Pinch a cotton ball in a clothes pin.  Assist the child in dipping the cotton ball into blue paint to stamp circles on the Jellyfish worksheet. 
- If possible, visit a local aquarium to see jellyfish or view on YouTube.   

• Book of the Week Ideas:  
- Continue to expand your child's vocabulary by teaching her the names of the object, animal, or emotion pictured.  (Click to read more on teaching your child a new concept.)
- Look for items in the book that are circular in shape.

• Fine Motor Skill:  
Removing and adding stickers to a paper is a great fine motor activity.  For only a few dollars, a multitude of sticker books are available.  Assist the child in removing the sticker and allow him to place it on another page.  This is a wonderful quiet activity for restaurants, church, and other activities. 

• Gross Motor Skill:  
Streamer Ribbon Dance - Attach ribbons, streamers, or scarves to the end of a paper towel holder or straw.  Hold the ribbon swirling it from side to side, up and down, etc.  Be sure to switch hands.  This activity improves hand-eye coordination.
