Getting Ready for Christmas


We have been super busy creating and getting ready for Christmas.   
I honestly don't know where the time goes!!
My kiddos are super excited and they are wanting to craft so much.

So, here is just a bit of what we have done the last few weeks.

Little Gnomes
We made these using cone shapes.

Christmas Trees
We made these simple trees by gluing strips of paper onto a large triangle, then decorated 
them with circles.

Santa Wreath Shapes

Santa in the Chimney
My kiddos love reading the story called "Santa's Stuck", so we made this craft to go along
with the story.

Halloween is Coming


Busy days and busy hands at my house with lots of learning and fun.
Fall and Halloween are always such exciting times for the kiddos.

So, here's what we've been up to the last few weeks.

Paper Plate Scarecrow

Scarecrow Puppets
I printed these cute little scarecrows off and the kids coloured them.

Our Scarecrow
One of our activities was to make a life sized scarecrow that we put at the front of the house.
The kids just loved stuffing him and putting him together.  
They say hello to him every morning when they arrive.

Halloween Banner

I made a cone from some white paper and the kids coloured the features.

Witch House

Silly Ghost
We glued white tissue paper strips onto a small paper plate and then added the ghost features.

Pool Noodle Pumkins
I cut a pool noodle and the kids decorated them.

Wicked Witch Puppet

Climbing Spider
These were easy and fun to play with as the spider can slide up and down.
I drew a spider web onto a paper tube.  The kids then coloured the spider and I glued a small piece of a straw to the back to thread the string through so the spider could move up and down.

Funny Skeletons

Lots more Halloween fun to come.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
