(Striving to Be) Super-Mom Summer Series

Don't forget to enter to win my giveaway for $100 credit to here!

This last week has been a busy one.  Grant had his birthday party with family, a little party at school, and a bounce house party with his two besties.  It's been fun. :)  On top of all the birthday festivities we did some transportation activities.

Books: We went to the library and got a bunch of different books on trains, car, and construction vehicles.  Grant's favorite book happened to be called "Rain Train," I think we read it like five times a day. Here's a bunch of different books you can pick about trains.

Crafts: We made a "Name Train" together. I got the idea here.  It was great for letter recognition.  I had the train parts cut and ready to go, Grant was in charge of getting things in the right order and glued down.  The kid LOVES glue.

Craft: Thumb Print Train.  I got the idea here.  We're actually going to do it today, so I'll have to let you know how it goes.  So cute though!

Car Wash: I got the idea here and it's pretty much genius!  Grant played for a super long time and we actually did the activity more than once.  Score.

That's actually all the activites we had time for this week, I have a bunch more pinned I think Grant will like, so I think I'll continue with Transportation for next week too.

Now, here are some pictures from the Granster's birthday.  He had fun : )

Stuffed Spider-Man from Grandpa.  He now sleeps with it every night....

He loves his new bike, so fun!

The Spider-Man cake : )

Cake Face : )

He's loving his train set add on from Grandma!

Grant and his besties at the bounce house : )

Also, we attempted to get three year pictures taken at a big box and they were a disaster.  Such a bummer, so I went to the park and took a few.  I think they turned out ok, here are a few favorites:
