Preschool Activities: Letter of the Week {Oo}

By Tiffany Rudd
Snack Ideas:
      * Octopus Hotdogs: I love this idea over at Happy Day Preschool
      * Estimate & Count Cheerios: Did you notice this fun stack is the same shape as the letter Oo? Give your child a small bowl of Cheerios cereal. Have her grab and handful and guess how many she has. Then count them with her. 


Favorite Books:
      * Tickly Octopus by Ruth Galloway

      * Oposites by Sandra Boynton

Crafts:
      * Paper Octopus: This octopus made out of a toilet paper roll and some construction paper are too cute. Draw the lines and let you child do the cutting for some great scissor skills practice.

      * Owl Crafts: Check out these super cute owl crafts over at Oopsey Daisy
      * Cheerio Octopus: There are detailed instructions on how to make this super cute octopus using your child's handprints at Little Learners Lounge.


Activities:
       * Homemade Indoor/On the Floor Obstacle Course: This is one of the very first activities Deborah posted on our blog. It's the perfect activity for a rainy day and with the printable list of actions and characters it will be different and fun each time your child requests it. Find the whole post HERE.
       * Octopus Color Matching Cards: Once again, Confessions of a Homeschooler has some fantastic resources. This printable octopus color matching puzzle cards are super cute.
