So we set up this project several days ago. Took it out a couple times to do it, but got busy & put it back in the freezer. Today was the day for our ice excavation.
Today we decided to spend our morning doing a creative art project. First we cut pictures out of a magazine. Then using glue sticks (slightly less messy than squeeze bottles) attached them to a big paper. Then we proceeded to complete the picture by drawing what we thought would go with it. We cut out a skirt & A drew the rest of the person. We cut out a blob & S saw a butterfly & then a person. We cut out a shoe & made it a hat. The possibilities are endless!
SLILLS: Fine Motor (cutting, gluing, drawing), Imagination, Storytelling
Skis or ice skates, whichever you would call them the kids are having a blast today!
A & S have been wanting to go ice skating, but it is a bit too cold for the outside rink. So today we turned the newest delivery packages into skis! (Or as A calls them, ice skates).
S got some matchbox cars for Christmas. So to go along with his other cars we decided make a track/ garage from our cardboard boxes. After scrolling through Pinterest, I got some neat ideas. S helped me measure, tape, and hold parts in place.
S was so excited he got right to playing as we were still making it! Then after we picked A up she was excited to see what we made. Countless hours have been spent with this creation today!
*Note: I would like to decorate it with roads & whatnot, but the kids seem to love it just the way it is.
We decided we would host pizza & pumpkin carving this year. And what a grand time it was! As the pile of shoes show, we had a great turnout! We had 10 kids & 12 adults over.
I found this cute post by MmmCrafts called TravelWees and decided I needed to try it! And I have to admit, I love how she turned out!
What a fun little craft to make. This one is a gift and I look forward to seeing where she goes!
Ater our last slime we decided to try another one that would stretch better. So this time we tried Saline Slime by Little Bins for Little Hands. This is by far our favorite slime so far! (Easy to make, not too sticky/ messy).
We decided it would be a fun day to paint, but wanted to try something new. So, after a bit of Googling we decided to try painting with coffee.
I made up 3 cups because I didn’t want to miss out on the fun! Then we grabbed some leaves and acorns with our paper & paint brushes and got to playing!
Today we are having our electric panel replaced, so that means 4-5 hours without power. Which, we spend a lot of our time outside so it’s not that big of a deal. But we have decided to make it an “Adventure Day”. Part of our adventures is doing something new. So one of our new things was Sparkle Thinking Putty. We used the instructions by Little Bins.
