Winter Theme


Another fun week of creating for us here at my house.
This past week we continued to talk about and create with our Winter theme.

So here's what we did.

Paper Roll Snowman
This cute little guy was made using paper rolls cut into different lengths.
Easy and fun to decorate.

Let's Go Skating
This is a simple interactive craft we did. I printed out the skater and glued it onto a piece of heavy cardboard to make it more sturdy.  My kids coloured them up, then we glued on a popsicle stick to the back.  Using a paper plate as our skating rink, I cut a slit across the plate and we added the skater into that.
Here is the skater printout I used:

Feed the Birds
Here is a simple printout we used to make a bird feeder.

Going Sledding
It's amazing how long my kids were entertained and had fun playing with this cute little craft.  
I laid a long piece of paper from the table to the floor and they were able to slide their people down to the floor.  They loved it and the cooperation and taking turns was such a wonderful thing to see.
Here is the printout:

Ice Skates
I simply printed these out and after the kids coloured them, we added a stick as the skate blades.
Here is the printout:

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Hope you have a great week!

Happy New Year!

 Welcome and Happy New Year!!

I am back to work although we are in another lock down.  Being with my little ones makes me happy and I think we all need that right now!

So here's what we did last week.

Happy New Year!
Since it was our first time together, we celebrated the New Year by making some hats and a count down....good way to practice our number recognition too.  
I printed out the hat and they coloured it and the countdown is a paper plate with a slit in it to slide the numbers down as we did our countdown.

Aren't these just the cutest?
Here is the link to make them:

Snowman Wreath
Here is a simple snowman wreath we made using a paper plate.

Snowman Puppet
These were great fun.  
I added the kids photo and we made them each into snowmen.  They loved making a puppet show using themselves as the snowmen...they especially loved giving themselves a carrot nose.

Well thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
More fun to come next week.
