For our RED week we watched and listened to the story The Little Red Hen by Josheph Jacobs and then made this cute paper plate little red hen.

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.

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 🙂

“You Color My World” Valentines {Part One}

20130203-144451.jpg
We have been hard at work for over a week making part of the kids’ valentines gifts for their family and friends. We were given a large bucket of old and broken crayons that had been separated by color which sparked the idea of gifting, made with love, heart shaped crayons.

How to:
-Gather and collect as many old or broken crayons as possible. Don’t be afraid to ask your family and friends if they have some laying around they would like to get rid of.
-Sort by color
-Remove all paper from crayons
-Break crayons into smaller pieces
We used the baby food jar and boiling water method to melt our crayons, like Fun on a Dime did.
When we FINALLY finished we grouped them together and made a tower of love tied together with yarn.
