Apples

 Welcome
Fall is such a great time to go apple picking for many.
I thought we would do a fun theme of apples, some simple crafts easy for little hands.
We even found the 'star' in the middle of the apple!

So, here's what we did last week.

Apple Tree
We did some fine motor with picking up the circles and gluing them onto the tree.


Apple Puppet
Simple puppet cut and glue activity.


Apple Counting
I cut the apples out and the kids glued the seeds on.  Great counting activity and number recognition.



A is for Apple


Worm in the Apple

Squirrels and Hedgehogs

 Welcome
Another busy week being outside and then creating when inside.
At this time of year, I thought we would do a theme about squirrels and hedgehogs.  
We've seen lots of squirrels but no hedgehogs, but we know they are around.

So here's what we did last week.


Squirrels
We learned about where the squirrels live and some of the food they like to eat.
We saw where the squirrels had dug holes in my garden, trying to dig up my bulbs I presume.
We used a paper cup as the body and glued on the details.



Hedgehog
This fun printable was easy to make.


Standing Squirrels

Squirrel Mask
We pretended to be squirrels looking for some acorns.

Another Hedgehog

Back to School

 Welcome

Another busy week at my house enjoying the last days of summer and back to school.
We still always find time to create.  It is such a self-esteem booster, builds confidence, helps fine motor skills and offers a multitude of learning opportunities.  

So, here's what we did last week.  

School Bus
We live down the street from a school so we are seeing school buses drive by all the time.
This cute printable was fun to make.



Name School Bus
I printed off this school bus and we added the kid's names in the windows.
A great way to reinforce learning to recognize their names.


Let's Read
We love to read and this cute printable was fun to make.



Puppets

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Cats and Dogs

 Welcome
Last week was a simple one....cats and dogs.
We tried to enjoy as much outside time as we could before 2 of my littles start school, but managed to craft a bit too.  

So here's what we did last week.

Paper Plate Pups
We used one paper plate as the bas and a folded on glued on top for the mouth.
The kids glued and coloured them.



Standing Cat
This printable is HERE

Off to School
Since 2 of my littles are off to school, I gave them these printouts to decorate as themselves.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Summer is such a fun time to be outside, something we love to do. 
We do like to take some time though, to create, especially on those rainy days.

Kites
These simple folded paper kites were fun to fly.
We added streamers on the bottom.

This simple puppet is basically a big heart cut at the top and glued together.



CD Suncatcher
We used some old CD's to make suncatchers.

We made these simple rainbows to better learn the letters of the kids names.

What a busy month August has been!  I can't believe how time flies.
I took some time off and stepped away from social media so be prepared....this post is a longer then usual with the theme we worked on for a few weeks.

So here's what we did a few weeks ago.

Fish
We made these cute cone fish using construction paper.



Rocking Shark
This fun printable was coloured, then folded so it would rock.

This cute little fish was made using a paper towel tube, flattened and then cut.
The kids coloured it and we attached it to a large stick and went fishing.


Moving Fish
We made these fun fish that could bend and we could make them swim.


Seashell Necklaces
I had a bag of seashells so I drilled some holes in them and the kids used them to string some necklaces and bracelets.



Seashell
I printed this cute little seashell off and when folded, it can open and close.
Some of the kids made small shapes to put in the mouth.
