Baby Signing!
I just started showing Noah a few signs: milk, more, up, please.

Recycled Play Milk Jug
We somehow always lose the pieces to Noelle's play kitchen. 
This tutorial is great for DIY kitchen items.

Whale Milk Jug Craft

Noelle is working on letter F in Preschool this week and our bible story is Jonah and the Big Fish. When I saw this craft at Growing a Godly Girl I was so excited. All you need is a milk jug, scissors and a sharpie to create the big fish to swallow up Jonah. 
Draw an outline of the mouth:

 Then cut it out and draw a mouth, eyes, fins and blow hole.

 First I read the story in Noelle's baby Bible.
{Woody bravely played the part of Jonah}

Then Noelle took her whale out to the water table to act out the story on her own.

Great fun!

Thanks for linking up!

  1. What a cute idea for a blog hop!! I can't wait until I get to participate in this one day. :) That whale/milk idea is genious! Totally why I had to pick your for the award! Don't worry about getting the post done quickly... I found it took me longer than I thought! It is fun though to see everyone's lists once they're able to make them. Have fun with it! And have a great weekend!

  2. What a cute idea! I like it.
