Little Miss Muffet {Letter L}

For the letter L, Taitum learned the rhyme Little Miss Muffet.

Day 1

She made a spider out of a paper plate, construction paper and googly eyes.
We later tied him to a curtain rod so she could run around frightening people.

Day 2

We played the tuffet game.
The girls collected all the pillows in the house and laid them on the floor to be used as tuffets.
I then added tape to each pillow with various letters written on it.
I recited the poem with a little twist:
"Little Miss Muffet sat on a 'B', eating her curds and whey."
Tait or Piper would then run and jump on the pillow with that letter.

Day 3

Taitum posted a video on Facebook to survey who is and who is not afraid of spiders.
(Her homemade spider makes an appearance , too!)

She then compiled her data.
She placed a sticker on either the 'yes' or 'no' spider web.
Our FB friends are awesome at participating!
We ran out of spider stickers and had to switch to using do-a-dot markers.
It turns out more people are afraid of spiders!
I understand!

Day 4

We did a curds and whey experiment.
Tait added vinegar to some milk and observed how it causes the milk to separate and become chunky.

She later had a chance to eat her own curds and whey (cottage cheese).

Day 5

Finally, an 'L' craft featuring Miss Muffet, her curds and whey and that irritating spider!
