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! […]

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 […]
