Let's Go Camping

 Hello and Welcome
Boy, did we ever have a fun week with our Camping fun.

So here's what we did last week.

Camping Lanterns
We made these adorable camping lanterns.  So fun and yet so easy to make!!
I love how they turned out.
I got the kids to glue squares of tissue paper onto a piece of clear cellophane I got at the Dollar Store.
I used a container with a screw on lid as the base and hot glued a plastic plate to the bottom of the container with a pipe cleaner handle so it could be unscrewed as we added a battery light inside.

The kids loved going into the pretend tent I set up with their lanterns shining.

Going Camping
We made this cute and fun to play with camping scene.
Above, you will see our camp fire we made the same as our lanterns but this time, we used a clear plastic cup and set it onto an old CD covered with strips of brown paper for the base.
The tent is just a piece of folded paper with some sticks glued onto the front and back.  We even made a stick for roasting marshmallows.

Camper Trailer
We made these cute little camper trailers using a half of a paper plate.

Rain Sticks
These sticks are simple to make.

Teddy Bear's Picnic
On Friday we celebrated a birthday with a Teddy Bear's Picnic.  
The kids all brought a favourite bear, we made these cute banners, then packed up a picnic lunch and headed up to the park for lunch.
Our bears were friendly because you don't ever want to meet an unfriendly bear when you are camping!!

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

 Hello and Welcome

Another week filled with fun and learning.  Always a good time.

So here's what we did last week.

Fly Catcher Frogs
These were fun to make.  We used a paper tube, coloured it and added the frog details.
It is stapled shut at the bottom and then I added a string with a bottle lid and we glued on a fly.
They tried to get the fly into the frog's mouth.

Paper Tube Frogs
Simple paper tube frogs.

Frog Game
This was a simple game we made.  I cut a circle of paper, the kids coloured it and I glued it into a cone shape.  I cut a small hole in the bottom and hot glued a straw into the hole.  
When they blew on the straw, the Styrofoam ball would rise.

Frog Puppet
Simple frog puppet.

Frog Life Cycle
We learned how a frog goes from a tadpole to frog.  So interesting.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Watermelon and Strawberries...Yum!


This past week, we decided to celebrate summer with lots of watermelon and strawberry crafts.
Some of my little ones have been strawberry picking so I thought it would be a fun theme to work on.

So here's what we did last week.

Strawberry Puppets
Simple puppets

Watermelon Fans
We created these fun fans using half of a paper plate.
They loved gluing on the seeds...good fine motor practice too!

Watermelon Banner
Simple watermelon banner made with paper plates.

Paper Strawberries
Simple folded strawberries glued onto a piece of pink construction paper.

Paper Popsicles
The kids wanted to make some paper popsicles and that lead to making an ice-cream store.  They had such fun pretending to sell ice-cream and popsicles on a hot day!

Thanks so much for taking a look.
Have a great week.
