For the letter L, Taitum learned the rhyme Little Miss Muffet.
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.
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.
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!
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).
Finally, an 'L' craft featuring Miss Muffet, her curds and whey and that irritating spider!
