We were busy, busy, busy, having a blast with the letter B Along the Alphabet Path the past couple weeks, so brace yourself for another extra long post!
Bumble Bees with painted Blueberries and grass at the Base
Snuggles colored this picture from My Book of Letters last school year…
I pulled out the rest of the activity pages for the letter B…
I asked Snuggles to color the sky gray and the b his favorite color (which happens to be blue) and he went on to “finish” the picture by coloring the grass, tree, and bat as well. He even colored the moon white. He was determined to cover that page with color!
He went on to sounding out the names of four pictures and figuring out which three began with the sound “b.”
Snuggles loves forming the letters with Wikki Sticks!
When we were at the craft store looking for fleece for the Blanket, we also ran across a “Nemo” themed piece of scrapbook paper that the kids all thought would make a perfect Background for Snuggles’ A, B… Seas Ocean Box! After gluing the page into the box, he also added dots of white paint with the end of a pencil to create “bubbles.”
Mix 2 cups water with 1/2 cup dishwashing liquid and 1 teaspoon of sugar in a shallow baking pan.
Dip the tip of a straw in the bubble liquid and blow bubbles. The straws were fun, but Snuggles especially loved the bubble makers we made from pipe cleaners. This was such a fun and simple experiment!
I posted the instructions and additional pictures from this craft here: Angel Art for A Week.

B is for Blanket :: A No Sew Fleece Tie Blanket Tutorial
B is for Building, Boat, and Busting the Burglar! 😉
For the letter “B” I pulled out this little lego set for Snuggles to Build a Building, Boat and a Bad Guy/Burglar, getting Busted! 😉
Brushing paint on Building Blocks
Snuggles was Burn out on this after painting a few blocks… I took over the project. 😉
B is for Blessings
Taking advantage of the letter B theme, we finally Began Snuggles’ Bible Narrations and Picture Study for this year. We are reading the New Testament Stories from Classic Bible Stories: A Family Treasury. (I decided to wait on the Old Testament since our whole family will be moving on to Ancient History next year.) After I read the story to Snuggles’ he narrates it back to me and then illustrates a page in his book based on the picture provided.
The Holy Twins: Benedict and Scholastica
I Believe: The Nicene Creed
Brendan the Navigator
Bernadette: The Little Girl from Lourdes
The Life of St. Brigid: Abbess of Kildare (Not Pictured)
Saint Brendan and the Voyage Before Columbus
Of course we had to read about Pope Benedict too, and the sacrament of Baptism!
I also had ordered a copy of the new book Be Saints!: An Invitation from Pope Benedict XVI but it’s on backorder and hasn’t arrived yet. Hopefully it will arrive in time for All Saints Day!
