Getting everything ready for the day took some work with Riley. We counted out 100 goldfish crackers for him to take to class. 10 rows of 10 so we could practice a lot of counting. Counting by 10 is hard work.
We've been trying to work on Valentines for a few days because I knew that Riley's wasn't going to sit down and willingly write his name 19 times. Seriously should have started a week ago but we at least spread it over the weekend. He did it! All by himself because I may be more stubborn than he is.
He loves to stir and mix
Like making cookies.
Riley loved mixing it with his hands.
We of course had to taste the cookies... did you guess they were chocolate chip.
This is what big brother looked like the entire time we were working. He has been plowing through the Percy Jackson series since Christmas was excited to be finishing book 4.
Thankfully I was able to talk Rex into helping on day two of marshmallow fun. After you make the marshmallow fluff it has to set up overnight. Its pretty boring in the shape of a cookie sheet so we like to take a cookie cutter to it and make fun shapes. We added coca to the fluff for yummy chocolate marshmallows.
Riley loved making hearts and was so proud he could do it all by himself. He worked so hard to press that cookie cutter down SOOO hard so he could pull out the heart.
