Preschool Craft: Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day

We liked our Strings of Hearts in our dining room so well during Valentine’s Day, that we were talking about them one night at dinner that we should take them down. Henry didn’t want to. So Dad suggested something to make for St. Patrick’s Day coming up. My wheels got turning and I came up […]

Sand Sensory Art: 100th Day of Preschool

Henry had his first homework assignment for preschool. To create the number 100 out of something. [Not 100 of something, but to make the numbers themselves.] We discussed it together to decide what to make. [Henry told me his teacher made one out of corn!] We decided we wanted to make one with dirt. Well, […]

Painting, Activities, Experiments & Learning

Some edible yogurt finger paint, let George participate in a painting activity with us! Another way to get George involved in painting? Put it in a baggy! Add something to roll around and let him have at it. A super fun, messy [but yet clean] sensory activity for both the boys! Making foam from dish soap! […]

I haven’t ever […]

Valentine’s Day Art: The Kids’ HeArts

I’m not sure what it is about this Heart art that I like so much. Maybe its because both the boys did it together. Or maybe its because I found out how nicely Henry can cut and follow a line. Or maybe its just because its close to Valentine’s Day, and love is in the […]

Valentine’s Activity for Kids: Hunt for Love

I decided that we needed some kind of Valentine’s Day activity to do, instead of just crafty and artsy ideas. We did a heart hunt last year, with great success. But this year, I wanted to make Henry think about love a little. So I came up with a Hunt for Love. To start, we […]
