What child does not love squirt bottles? I know my kids keep finding my plant bottle and keep trying to get each other and the dog. So instead of spraying each other I turned this into some work for my preschooler. I have some flashcards and anytime we use them we have to be doing something more fun then flipping through them. So I created a letter board using sidewalk chalk. After that was completed I had my daughter hop from letter to letter saying her alphabet. Then I got the flash cards out and she had to tell me the letter, give me the sound, and then locate it on the sidewalk and shoot and aim! :) She had a lot of fun. We also got to do the letters more then one time because the water was drying so quickly! I also would give her a number and that was how many squirts she had to squirt the letter. (Had to sneak some math in there.)
I wish I would have done upper and lower case letters. I really need to start working more on lower case letters but I never seem to think about it till I'm done with the activity.
I also let my 16 month old have fun with the squirt bottle! :) He had fun aiming at all the letters.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
