A Letter a Day...Ll!

My son came tearing down the stairs this morning to discover today's letter, Ll! We had a bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast and then got dressed and went to our local library. We participated in the story time activity in which we listened to a story, sang songs, and made a craft. Afterwards, we checked out some books that had the letter L in them. Ladybug, Ladybug by Ruth Brown, The Lamb and the Butterfly by Arnold Sundgaard, and Tawny Scrawny Lion by Kathryn Jackson. Then, we had lunch at Logan's Roadhouse.
 Once we got home, it was time for nap. My son chose a book that we checked out and we read it before I put him to bed. While he napped, I got caught up on some laundry! After nap, we did our Do-A-Dot for letter L and then made a lady bug. I am including it in it's original size so you can print if you'd like! We used black dot paint for the spots, but you could draw them with marker or use stamp pad or paint and do your child's fingerprints. A great ladybug story is, The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. Then we made Lollipops with watercolors.
For an afternoon snack we made homemade lemonade to go along with our lemon cream cookies! I found the recipe here: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/perfect_lemonade/
