B4 FIAR co-op: The Red Carpet

I'm still doing a catch-up focused on February.  The month we focused on the delightful book The Red Carpet.  There are so many fun things to explore in this book!  We had a great time together enjoying some of them.  

We first read the story.

 Then each child received a picture/word card and was to listen for their word when it was read.  They then matched their word to the one already on the door.
 Next they all worked on building the town.  Each one had a building or location to make and some worked together on their sites.
 It always delights me to see Eliana participating as she has come a long way since we first started doing this co-op.
 When the town was complete, a "red carpet" was wound through out the buildings.
 Everyone enjoyed seeing this ...
 and then driving their vehicles through the town.
 One of the craft projects involved making a stoplight.  Eliana likes gluing so this was a hit.
 Next they made pictures using vehicles and paint.
 Eliana did this and only wanted to use one color and vehicle while others embraced lots of colors and various vehicles.  All fun.
 Lastly, we enjoyed a snack.  Not the "stop light" colors of the snack too.
Our time spent with friends is always sweet and fun.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to share learning and memories with our friends.
