As I stated after last week’s final entry, I am working with a budget of $129.00 this week. With a scorching week on the horizon, I predict a lot of water activities this week!
Beach - We will start our week off right with a trip to the beach. The beach that we go to is right by the inlet and two drawbridges. It is really exciting to watch the boats go through the little channel some big enough to raise the bridges. It might be fun to try and predict which boats will need to raise the bridges or what types of fish the big fishing boats are hunting.
Homemade Boats - Here is a link to some homemade boa crafts. I am planning on trying the cork design since we will be by my parents house and my dad likes to make wine.
Paper Boats - I think the art of folding paper is so cool so this activity of making folded paper boats will be lots of fun!
Row Row Row Your Boat - We can practice singing the song as a round with the whole family and we can act out the song using couch cushions as our boat and pantomiming the oars.
Lighthouse Craft - We can have a talk about lighthouses and how they help boats. We have been to several and they have great memories of seeing them so this craft will be an exciting addition to our boat day!
Free Painting - It would be interesting to see the types of boats they could create freely and how their boats would sit in an ocean. Painting an ocean is so fun as you mix blues and swirl them around. Adding many brightly colored boats on top or just one big boat would make for a beautiful sea picture.
Budget - $1.00 (Beach was Granny’s treat! Posterboard was the $1.00)
