Lakeshore learning pit stop

Last month near Naters' 4th birthday, Her grandma & cousin Lesley came in from West Virginia.  One our of little day trips was to Preston's H.O.P.E. in Beachwood, OH (a totally awesome park!) and since we were so close, I just HAD to stop in to my local Lakeshore Learning Store while they were still having their summer sale!  I help back and only purchased a few things--i swear i would like to buy everything in the store!
We got two puzzles (Rain Forest & zoo), Idestructible Pots & Pans (already have the tableware), Magnetic fishing poles (going to make my own magnetic games), rubbing crayons, a solar system poster, a magnetic double sided lap board and a school year keepsake storage folder.  Can't wait to start doing some thumbprint art!  We are looking forward to going back to Preston's H.O.P.E. (and Lakeshore Learning) soon!

Princess Preschool theme printables

Naters is 4 yrs old (48 months).   I found my Princess themed printables at the following wonderful & generous blog sites Carisa's Princess Preschool Pack ; Jolanthe's Knight Preschool Pack ; Erica's Princess Preschool Pack; and Kaci's Princess Printables.  I made Naters' own Princess lacing cards and number sequence puzzles using images from the internet and printed them on cardstock, laminated and cut them out.
She's still enjoying her princess sensory tub!
Of course, she has to get our her princess jewelry, princess dresses & shoes often to play with her sensory tub.  Ken & Barbie have also been seen naked in the sensory tub swimming!
