Sara and Lily Stepford came over for a play date today! We decided to do some sensory play together and I chose the theme of bugs (for my boy) and flowers (for the girly girl). Syrus (at just a little over 3 months) had fun, but Lily being a little older (9 months), really got into it!
Various silk flowers
Hungry Caterpillar toy
Fowery silk scarf
Flower and bug jewlry
and Butterfly pasta (colored bow-tie pasta)
Lily decided to read us all the book
And I read it again to Syrus
Lily looked great in the ladybug costume
So we showered her in rose petals!
She was a Lily-bug!
Mommy caught the Lily-bug!
Then Lily caught Sy!
Then we caught a dragonfly
Sy enjoyed the flowers
So did Lily
And the two of them enjoyed the rose petals together
Then came the really fun part, the butterfly pasta!
We used gel food coloring to get the vibrant colors
Lily wasn't sure what to think at first, but then she got into it.
Syrus preferred to just dip his feet in
The kids seemed to have a very good time and so did we!
