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.

Welcome Fall and Thanksgiving


Fall is such a wonderful time of year.  My kiddos just love getting outside and collecting leaves.  
I love seeing all the colours of Fall happening, it's also such a great time for learning.
We also celebrate our Canadian Thanksgiving so lots was happening.

So, here's what we did the last couple weeks.

Fall Banners

Playing in the Leaves

Paper Strip Pumpkins
I cut some paper strips and we looped them together to make these cute little pumpkins.

Pumpkin Colouring

So, we have 3 chipmunks in our backyard that the kids love seeing and feeding.
They absolutely loved making this craft.

Leaf Fairies Puppets

Happy Thanksgiving

Turkey Shelf Sitters
The turkeys were also a big hit with the kids.
I created a cone shape for the body and the kids decorated them.

Thanksgiving Placemats
I printed off the turkey for the kids to colour, then we decorated them.
I covered them with some clear contact paper so they can be wiped clean.

Turkey Book
I printed off this turkey book and we made the feather on a stick to use with the story.  
In the story, the feather tickles and the turkey runs away.

Pinecone Turkeys
This was definitely the hit of the week.
We collected pinecones which the kids loved doing.  I hot glued them onto a piece of cardboard for stability, and the kids added colourful feathers to decorate them.

I hope you are enjoying the Fall as much as we are.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
