This little craft was so much fun and turned out so cute! The whole family made these together and they are happily displayed on our mantel. All you needs is toilet paper rolls, paint, scissors, marker, goggly eyes, and sticky dots (or glue).

Sponge Seed Pods

This is a really fun easy activity to do with your little ones for spring. All you need is a packet or two of seeds (herbs preferably), a few new sponges, scissors and a marker. I traced different shapes the kids chose and cut them out. We discussed different shapes and counted the sides. Once you have them cut out put them on a tray or plate that will hold a bit of water. Sprinkle each sponge with seeds, and spray with water until its damp but not soaked. I also pour a little water on the tray to help keep them moist.

Make sure sponges stay damp and place in direct sunlight during the day. At night turn a plastic container over them at night to keep moist. Happy growing!

Q-Tip Easter Egg Painting

20130328-130307.jpg We’ve lacked practicing our fine motor skills this week so I was hoping to find a fun and creative Easter activity specifically for fine motor skills. I came across Q-Tip Easter Egg Paintings on No Time For Flashcards and was so excited for the kiddos to do this and decorate our playroom walls with them. We made giant Easter eggs and they turned out BEAUTIFULLY!

ABC Egg Hunt & Match

We had a BLAST with this easy ABC activity. I filled Easter eggs with letters A-Z, hid the eggs then let the kiddos hunt them till all were found. When the eggs were all accounted for the kiddos would open them and match the correct letter to the letters on our playroom ABC rug. If you don’t have an ABC rug you could use flash cards instead. The kids loved it so much they couldn’t wait to do it again!

3D Rainbow Paper Strips {& Lessons Using Glue}

20130325-131628.jpg
A few weeks ago we made these extremely fun 3D rainbows. For my preschooler I put numbers on the colored strips and numbers on the base of our paper. Little Miss had to match the correct strip to the numbers and glue them.

My toddlers got to glue their color strips freely on their papers.

This activity was to give us a lesson in glue. We’ve been discussing “just a dot not a lot” and about how long it takes for glue to dry before its safe to move projects. With this activity we held our strips down and counted to 10 before moving on.

Rainbow Color Collages

Earlier in the week we had great fun making giant rainbow collages. The instructions and materials needed are pretty self explanatory by looking at the pictures.

This is wonderful art work for St. Patty’s day, the Letter Rr, discussing rainbows in weather and how rainbows are symbols of God and His promises.

I have our rainbows displayed in front of the window and it looks gorgeous when the light shines through 🙂
