I am a mom of 4 kids(13,12,10 and 8)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.
Cody made the All Star Football Team for our county !!! Proud Mommy!! 4 boys from Arcadia ! The team won. Cody got 2 sacks and just had a wonderful game. It was a great game to watch, even though it was freezing .
Here is an easy Nativity made from simple things you may already have around the house. The set is cute and the kids can play with them when you are done making them.
Note: I am sorry about some of the pictures. My computer is giving me a fit, and I do not feel like fighting with it.
For the Manger we used: toilet paper roll, brown paint, brush, scissors, glue, Spanish moss, a small piece of material, markers, small rubber band and a small craft stick.
For Mary and Joseph: large craft stick, piece of material, 2 clipping clothes pin, glue and markers. For the manger, paint the toilet paper roll brown. To make painting easier, hold the TP roll with a clothes pin. Allow to dry. Cut TP roll in half, longways. Glue one half to the other half, back sides together. Add Spanish moss to one half for the hay. To make baby Jesus, cut a small craft stick in half and draw on a face. Glue fabric around the baby to swaddle it. I used a rubber band at the end to secure it.
To make Mary and Joseph, cut large craft stick in half. Place one half in a clothes pin. Draw face on craft stick. Wrap and glue material around craft stack and clothes pin to look like clothing.
