Going to the Circus


We went to the circus last week....so, so fun for all.
During the week we made lots of circus related crafts, then on Wednesday we had a full on circus where the kids made clown accessories and we did some circus acts.  Then on Friday, we went on a lovely picnic to end the week off.

So here's what we did last week.

Dancing Horses
This was a simple craft made with a paper cup, a striped straw and the horses.

I cut a paper plate to create this cute, fun elephant.  Added a stick to make it a puppet.

Dancing Clown
We made these adorable dancing clowns...super simple.

Circus Visor
Simple print-out that I glued onto some cardboard to make it more stable.

Circus Tent
I printed off the tent, they coloured it and then we glued it onto a tissue box.
They could put their little finger puppets (shown below) into the circus tent.

Finger Puppets

Clown Puppet
Simple printable, coloured and added to a large craft stick.


Clown Masks

Clown Collar
The base of the collar is made from a paper plate.  
We added the tie.

Clown Shoes
Last but now least, we added some silly clown shoes for the circus.

Thanks so very much for checking in to see what fun we had.

It's All About Dad

 Hello and Welcome

Last week we celebrated by creating lots of goodies for the Dads.
I love seeing the excitement in the kids when creating and the smiles on their faces when they go out the door with all their special gifts to give.

So here's what we did last week.

Shark Card
Such a fun little card.  The mouth folded down to reveal the sentiment.

Best Dad 
Simple folded paper coloured to make badge.  

#1 Dad Pennant
I cut these out using some fun foam, then the kids decorated them.

Phone Holder
I glued craft sticks together and the kids coloured and decorated them.

Best Dad Trophy
I glued 2 gold paper cups together, glued on some handles cut from gold paper and the kids decorated them.

Desk Pencil Holder
I folded and glued these together and the kids decorated them.
Very easy to do!

One more Father's Day Card because we can never have enough.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Have a great week.

Bugs and Butterflies


We are totally enjoying the beautiful weather we are having here in Ontario and taking lots of opportunities to explore nature.  
My kids wanted to learn more about bugs and butterflies of course, so that's what we did.

Here's what we did last week.

Here is a simple ladybug sitting on a flower.
The flower is a paper plate with cut edges.

Catching Ladybugs
This was a simple gluing activity.  
We counted the spots on the ladybugs and the kids added the legs and antennae.

Ant Puppet
The kids coloured strips of red paper, I rolled them and we glued them onto a stick and added the legs.

I printed out the bugs and the kids decorated them.

Here is the bee puppet and the bee picture we made.  
I giggled to see how the kids personalized the bees in the picture!

Here are the cute butterflies we made using a spoon for the body.

Here Come the Dinosaurs



Another busy week gone by.
I can't believe how fast time flies some days!
We had fun learning about dinosaurs....finding out where they lived, what they ate, their names.
Carnivore and Herbivore became a much talked about subject.

So here's what we did last week.

This was a fun little game we made that the kids loved.

Dinosaur Finger Puppet
Here is a simple puppet just right for little fingers.

'D' Dinosaur
This was a fun little gluing activity for the letter D.

Just a cute little printable for playing with.

Dinosaur Egg
We learned about how dinosaurs come from an egg.
We used paper plates to make our egg and glued a small dinosaur inside.

Dinosaur Mask
Who doesn't need a dinosaur mask!

Dinosaur Bracelet
I printed out the bracelets and covered them with some plastic film for stability.

Dinosaur Bones
Here is a printable that the kids coloured, cut out and glued together.

We had fun making some Dinosaur fossils using a simple recipe and used the plastic dinosaurs to make the impressions.  The kids loved them.

Dinosaur Cutting Practice

Let's Go to Space


Last week we had fun exploring SPACE.  Lots of talking about what it would be like to go there...what happens with no gravity....how would you eat....sleep?  They loved pretending about floating in space.
Some of the kids already knew the names of some of the planets and they learned about a few more.

So here's what we did to go into space.

Space Shuttles
I cut out the bottom shape of the shuttle and the kids decorated with stars and colouring.
We glued on a paper tube with a hole cut in the top so we could add some little toy people in the shuttle.

Blasting Off Rocket
Here is a simple cup rocket we made using cups from the Dollar Store.  I attached an elastic to the bottom to make it spring up.  You place the decorated rocket over the black cup and just push down to blast off.  They had a 'blast' playing with them too!

Here is a cute little astronaut we made using a CD as the base and added paper details.
When you shake him, his legs and arms wiggle.

Solar System and the Planets
A simple printout to colour and decorate.

Space Helmet Mask
Simple face mask to go to space.

We made some Moon Rocks to find on the moon.

Rocket Snack
This simple snack was so fun to make.  Cheese on the bottom, strawberries and bananas.
They blasted off right into our mouths!

Simple printout alien

Well as you can see, it was a fun filled week.
Thanks so much for coming by and visiting.
