Okay, A bit early but we have started working on Spring. There is so much to cover and I want to get as much done as possible before baby # 6 comes in May insha Allah.
Here are a couple flower pots that I had my pre schooler, and kindergartener make. They are simply made out of foam board/paper. nothing fancy, but the lil ones did have fun making them!
We also made a series of caterpillars to start off the butterfly lesson. My 3 yr old son absolutley loves bugs, butterflies, and bees. I plan to make a couple of the insect lap books this spring, insha Allah.
The first of our caterpillars didn’t make it to the picture since it was my 2 yr old son’s project. We simply cut out an egg carton bottom and the lil guy painted it and we added pipe cleaners for the antenna. He loved it so much that I couldn’t get it from him for even a second. LOL
The next one was also quite simple. We just took two pieces of colored contstruction paper and cut them in to 1 or 2 in width and we actually used 3 pieces and stripped them together for length. After that we L shaped them together with a piece of tape and then just used a back and forth method weaving them over each other until it was all tegether like and accordian. Here is where I got my caterpillar project ideas from:
http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/insects/caterpillars.htm There are many insect crafts to do there. I am thinking of doing butterfly projects, but am thinking of something simple that we can suspend from the ceiling. I want it to look as if the butterflies are flying. Insha Allah if any of you have any suggestions, please do share. My lil ones are young so I try making the projects simple and as little clean up as possible. *smile*
Add more soon insha Allah!
