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!
Hooray! Hooray! It's the hundredth day! Today was our 100th day of school and I wanted to plan some fun and age appropriate hands-on activities to help my babies learn about 100. We had a great time and I can't wait to share these activities with you, too! So, keep reading!
When your babies are home with you, there's nothing more special than doing a Christ-centered Christmas. I wanted to give you some resources today for Christmas art for children that does remember to put the focus on HIM. We painted this precious nativity this year and I wanted to share it with you! So I've explained the DIY steps for making your art a success. Remember, it's not going to be perfect! Mine's not. When working with paint and children, relax and go with it! It's important to them that you're spending quality time with them above all. Ready to DIY?
What design elements do you like to use when you decorate for Christmas? Lots of people are getting crafty in what they include in their decor. I'm not crafty, but I enjoyed painting a Christmasy sign! Want to try your hand at making your own seasonal wooden signs? Keep reading!
Come on in! I'm taking you on a tour of our home and all its Christmas dressing. It's certainly beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at The Lee Schoolhouse with greenery and sparkle, wood and tin, lights and natural elements as well! Come see how we integrate all these elements for a simple Christmas feel. So, let's get started!
It's the time of year to smell that delicious, warm gingerbread smell! Don't you just love how it can fill your house? We just recently ended our gingerbread unit! I love teaching in themes with great literature and I couldn't wait to share this theme and learning activities with you!
GOBBLE! GOBBLE! GOBBLE! I can just hear my hubby doing his ever impressive turkey gobble. (If you know, him you should ask him to do it. hehe). It's turkey time and if you're a teacher of the primary grades or a homeschool momma like myself, you can get very tired of "eating" turkey crafts year after year! Yep! So, here's (probably) my one and only turkey craft for this month! We decided to do a Thanksgiving Day Count Down. This turned out to be a WONDERFUL craft to do (and I'm not crafty). We were able to integrate patterns, numeral writing, ordering numbers forwards and backwards and motor skills!
