Summer Reading Week 6...

I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by!  We have been so busy this summer, it's been crazy!  But a good crazy.  That's not to say though, that I don't long for a very lazy summer next year.  ;)
I only planned for 8 weeks for our summer reading, which means there are only two more weeks (after this one) planned for some summer reading fun!  This week is probably my favorite!

Oceans and Beaches:

What we're reading this week:

Fun and easy Foil Fish from http://nurturestore.co.uk/foil-fish-craft-ocean-theme-preschool

We will actually be using water color paints instead of markers for this.  We have left over coffee filters and paints from my daughters recent birthday watercolor party.  (painting never gets old)  :)

And finally this awesome Ocean in a Bottle from  http://happyhooligans.ca/ocean-in-bottle/

We'll also be having some good old fashion water play in the kiddie pool out back, and hoping we have the time to go visit our local aquarium!

Happy Reading!!
