I am a mom of 4 kids(11,10,8 and 6)who taught preschool for 2 years.
I hope you can use this blog as a resource to find fun activities to do with your children. Some ideas are new, while others have been around a while. This is a place where I can store all our activities without having to actually have to store them in my attic. I hope you find some fun and easy ideas.
This is an easy craft for older kids (and big kids like me) to do. I started making the pumpkins and thought this would be a great way to make turkeys too. The best thing about this craft is that not very many materials are needed.
Materials needed: Construction paper, scissors, glue and a stapler.
Cut the orange or brown paper into equal sized strips.
I used 4 strips about an inch thick.
Staple in a circle. And keep stapling circles to form a ball.
Decorate the pumpkin with a face, leaf and stem.
Caity glued her's to a piece of paper and decorated a pumpkin patch.
For the turkey form the ball and glue on a head, feathers and wings. I had to glue it to a piece of paper because the feathers made it tip back.
