Ocean animals foam stickers

E. got a pack of ocean themed foam stickers. She got so excited that I had to find out a something so she could stick them somewhere immediately.

I wasn’t in a very creative mode, I just gave her a sheet of blue construction paper and I joined her drawing some underwater scene.

We were just drawing and sticking… simple and great fun. Just what she wanted to do

The bottom of the ocean is ready: plants, floating algae, rocks and a sparkly starfish

Some animals at the bottom, some are floating, and a dolphin is jumping out:

E. took a photo of my ocean scene:


She took out another sheet and made another ocean scene:

I guess I need to buy another set of foam stickers 🙂



"Take a photo" scavenger hunt (with free printable)

In the middle of July we went up to the mountains. We were mainly in Hungarian up there but I wanted to have some English fun with E. As she’s into taking photos a lot nowadays I made her an ad hoc “take a photo” scavenger hunt activity.

The sheet I prepared is hand-made but I created a free printable out of it, which you can download at the end of this post.

E. can take better pictures than this
We went for an excursion to a lake. E. at first wasn’t very impressed with this activity, which surprised me to a great extent. But as we went along she got more and more excited.
All the photos were taken by her. Some are blurry some are absolutely gorgeous:

Invisible spider web


“log”, which is more like a tree trunk 😉




she can’t use the zoom but the ducks are in the top right corner

She told me to add green plants on her scavenger hunt activity sheet:

I also needed to add “stones and rocks” as it was E.’s wish

Rock with moss




the look out tower


oak leaves

Unfortunately, she couldn’t take a photo of a butterfly as they never seemed to land. Anyways, this project was more than rewarding if you have a look at the pictures. I think we’ll cover some other topics in the near future, like babies, playground, market, just to mention a few.
