Summer Theme - Day 3 - Thematic Learning

~Medha is 3 years 1 month old~

Whooooo!! We are on Day #3 of Thematic Learning on Summer Theme. Check Day 1 and Day 2 posts to see what activities we did.




Last 2 days we spoke about foods in summer and accessories we use in summer like Goggles, Umbrella etc.

Here is what we've been doing in this theme. Let us know what you think. We hope by providing these ideas or information, it will make your life easier and you can also do something similar for your kids!

Here is what we did?


First we discussed about things what we did yesterday and day before. We talked about watermelons, and its taste and textures and shapes. And then how did we made watermelon slices etc. And we spoke about umbrellas and goggles etc.

Sun Craft

We started with the craft of making Sun today as we realized that we didn't do this yet which I should've done on the first day itself. 

Materials

1 Paper Plate
Yellow color crayons or pencils
1 White Paper
Scissors
Glue

How to do? 

  • I asked Medha to color with SUN color on the paper. Then she brought Yellow color crayon and colored it. I didn't give paint instead I asked for crayons as coloring with crayons will take more time than paint.  If you want this to be done quickly or if you want to skip this step, take yellow construction paper. 


  • Once she colored the paper you separate 1/4th of the paper and gave back the remaining paper and I asked her to cut into small pieces and asked to glue the pieces on the paper plate. 

  • Now with the paper you separated out, cut them into strips and fold half and glue together and stick around the plate. 

Books


We read the book "The Rooster and the Sun" which is about Sun and importance of its light in the world.


We also read another book "Where is the Sun?" from Tulika in which a mother and child go in search for Sun.





    Activities

    • We repeated Ice Making and Ice Melting activity as per Medha's request. 
    • We also made Fruit Popsicle Sticks using Watermelon Juice and Apple Juice. 

    That's it today. We are planning to continue tomorrow also on the same theme as we are yet to talk about few more simple things which Medha can understand related to SUMMER Theme. So, SUMMER THEME is going to be 4 Days. :)

    Please leave a comment, if you like any of the activities or crafts. 

    Happy Parenting!!
