Spring has sprung a seed study at our home and not only have we been reading tons of books about seeds, plants, stems, flowers, roots and fruits, we're making art with seeds! I know, crazy, right? Well, it turns out your little ones can have a lot of fun making art with seeds. All you need are a few things.
I'm not really a crafty person, but I'm learning to do more crafts with my babies. They love crafts! I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. Crafts float their boats and so I'm going to show you a spring flower craft we just did this week! It turned out super cute!
It's March and of course, everyone thinks of rainbows! We had a lot of fun painting our rainbows with cotton balls. It is a little out of the ordinary to use cotton balls, but I'm trying to be more thoughtful of developing my preschooler's fine motor skills. This rainbow art I'm going to share with you today has a 3 fold objective: fine motor skill development, learning colors, and seasonal art!
We're finally finishing up our in-depth caterpillar/butterfly study and this is the last free download from the study! I loved making these butterfly exploration cards! They turned out to be useful in so many ways. You can download them for free at the bottom of my post! Enjoy!
We've been studying the butterfly life cycle out of curiosity and because it's spring here in the south. I made these cute little puppets with my preschooler today. They're super easy to make and I'm giving you the pieces as a free download!
One of the joys of homeschooling is that we can teach habit formation and virtues. “The habits of the child produce the character of the man.”- Charlotte Mason, Simply Charlotte Mason President's Day in February gives us a great opportunity to work on the character trait of honesty. The story of George Washington as a young boy and the cherry tree is a great story to support the honesty virtue and has been used throughout generations to teach this principle. So, in light of our first grade study of George Washington, President's Day and our four week habit training on honesty, I'm sharing with you some ideas and resources you too can use with your children!
How do you combine a cold weather animal craft with Valentine's Day? Make some kissy-face heart penguins! These turned out pretty cute! My 5 year old daughter actually helped me design these. I wanted the penguins to create a heart with their tummies when they stand together and it took several sketches, but we finally got it! Want to make one with your sweet babies? Keep reading.
