Apples and Fall Leaves

Fall is here and the warmer temperatures we have been having are lovely.
Once again, we have been busy creating with our Apple Theme and our Fall Leaves Theme.
The kids really enjoyed both and picking up leaves has been a real thrill.

So, here's what we did the last couple weeks.

Apple Sun Catchers
I got the kids to stick tissue paper onto some contact paper and then we added the apple outline.

Apple Trees
The were simple paper tubes and added the apples to the top.

Apple Books
In the pages of our books we learned how an apple starts as a seed and grows into a tree.

'A' for Apple

Apple Pie
Come and get some apple pie...yum!

Shark Week

Last week was so busy and we had fun with our 'SHARKS' theme.
The kids loved creating and learning about them.

So, here's what we did last week.

Paper Plate Shark
I used some black paper plates for our scary sharks with sharp teeth.


Shark Hat
The kids loved wearing and pretending to be sharks.

Shark Game
This simple paper plate game was a fun one.
The kids coloured the shark and plate, then we glued it over the hole I cut in the plate.
They used a pom pom as the fish and holding the plate, tried to roll it into the shark's mouth.

Baby Shark
The kids loved this one and we sang 'Baby Shark' all day!

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
