More Summer Fun

 Hello all and Welcome

We are back from my 2 wks off and ready to get creative.
Trying to embrace the last days of summer as some of my little ones will be heading off to school.

So here's what we did last week.

Hungry Caterpillar
As you can tell, this book has been well loved by many kids.
We made these cute caterpillars using a large popsicle stick and glued pom-poms on for the body.

Coffee Filter Butterfly
We coloured 2 coffee filter with WASHABLE Crayola markers. We sprayed the filters with water for the colours to blend, then let them dry.
While they dried, we decorated a clothespin and added the eyes and antennae.

Paper Plate Sunflowers
We have been seeing so many blooming sunflowers in the neighbourhood.
We used a paper plate as the base.

Summer is such a fun to go kite flying and even more fun if you make your own kite.
Here's what we made...added streamers too for the tails.
folding instructions here:

We decorated some old CD's to make our shiny suncatchers for outside.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

More Ocean Adventures


Thanks for dropping in to see what we were up to last week.
The kids loved our 'Ocean' theme and wanted to do more, so that's what happened.

So here's what we did last week.

Shark Fish Toss
This was so fun.  I cut out a shark figure and the kids coloured it. 
We added a folded paper plate mouth and some google eyes.  
The kids tossed the fish into the sharks mouth.

Cone Lobsters
Simple lobsters made using a cone shape as the base.

These simple octopus were made using a paper cup.

I bought some fun foam stars and we glued Cheerios around the edges.

This cute printable mermaid was a hit.  

Mermaid #2

Ocean Life
We used some stickers to create this fun underwater scene.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
No posts here for the next few weeks as I will be off.

Ocean Adventures


Our theme last week was all about the ocean and ocean creatures.  
It's so fun to explore and learn new things about it all.  The kids ask such interesting questions that we look up on Google to find lots of pictures and answers to our questions.

So here's what we did last week.

This fun printout was simple to do and lots of fun.

Hammerhead Shark
We made this simple hammerhead using a tube for the head.

Rocking Whale
This cute little whale was made using a folded paper cute.

Octopus Puppet
I printed this out and we glued it onto an envelope I cut the bottom off of so they could use it as a puppet.

Fish Mask
We had fun making our masks and pretending to be fish.

Shark Attack
These sharks were fun to make.  I used a paper plate for the body and the kids got some good practice with sewing the string through the holes.
We added details and then had a shark attack.

Sea Life
(and old printable I had in my files)

A Day at the Beach
Such a fun printable to create.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
