Two Playdates- Alphabet Theme and Canvas Painting

This Alphabet Playdate was simple and easy to plan, and everyone enjoyed the theme.  I also like to think that the toddlers might have learned a thing or two!

1. Snacks: A is for Apples, B is for Banana Chips, C is for Cookies (cinnamon alphabet cookies from Trader Joe's). I also served fruit, hummus wraps, and Cheeze-its with the letters of the alphabet on them

2. We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and the toddlers used magnetic alphabet letters to decorate a huge coconut tree that I cut out of construction paper and taped to the door

3.  Homemade play doh (this recipe) and alphabet shaped cookie cutters

4.  The toddlers working on their creations

5.  Each child's arm dipped in finger paint made the tree trunk, and then they decorated the coconut tree with letter shaped stickers

6.  Foam letters for exploration

7.  Each child arranged miniature dot stickers in the shape of the letter of their first name


My friend T hosted this Canvas Painting Playdate that was just too adorable not to share.

T served paint palate cookies, rice crispy treat paintbrushes, muffins, and veggies as snacks. She provided a canvas and a plate of paint for each child, and spread out a huge tarp outside on her driveway. It was messy but worth it because that is what made it fun, plus now we have our children's beautiful artwork to hang on the wall!
