Spring Bulletin Board

4 Mar

I know it is early but I had to get the new Spring Bulletin Board up this week. I wanted to go with the “BEE” theme. Found the word Un “BEE” lievable, online and went with it. Of course I went searching on Pinterest for some cute bees found this scrapbook kit.

Tree bee and hive idea

So Here is how my board turned out. 

Leap Year Day 2012

4 Mar

Leap Day was a lot of fun for us at Preschool, we celebrated all day with fun frog activities. For PE class I came up with a few games.

I blew up green balloons and the kids used the large parachute to keep them hopping (which they love).

Kids love tossing and knocking things down so I created some frog pins that they knocked down with stuffed frogs. I used empty Pringles cans wrapped them in green colored paper printed a frog image from online and glued one to each can. Simple, cute and the children really have fun doing these type of games.

I used scrap felt to make lilly pads, I just cut a circle shape with a notch to resemble a lilly pad. I put hot glue on one side to make them non-slip, which worked very well.

Then I made a frog Bean bag toss game with a box I found in my junk closet, a piece of green cardboard and some construction paper. I just free handed everything, kept it super simple. Cut a large opening for his mouth to toss a bean bag in. For the bean bag I thought a fly would be perfect. So I used felt, cut 2 black oval shapes, 2 eyes and a set of wings. I just hot glued everything together, left a small hole placed beans in a baggie then inserted them in the hole hot glued shut and I had a little fly to feed the frog.

I set up the lilly pads, a balance beam and the frog toss game as an obstacle course it made for a very “HOPPY” Leap Day in PE!

“Dare Not to Swear”

26 Jan

So after making my son’s T-shirt and him really wanting to make one for his teacher, I decided to show you how we did it. With pics and all! Okay so I am all about using the things we have, my Mom had an extra adult t-shirt that had a tag of $1.24, on it. We used a white tee out of our donate box to stamp on. We had blue and white paint in the craft drawer and blue thread. And of course we used little sis’s foam bath letters again. Here we go.

All the supplies.

Stamping the shirt.

Completed shirt, stamped, sewn all crazy and splattered. I hope Ms. B likes it!

  

T-Shirt

24 Jan

So my middle Son asked if he could make a T-shirt in order to get tickets for fun things at school. The cause for the shirt to get kids to stop cursing at school. The slogan “Dare Not To Swear”. I told him we could come up with something, but we had to use things we had here at home to make it with. The hunt was on. He found an old white Tee that had a pink stain across the backside.  I found a pair of my daughters 3 sizes to small gray leggings. We found some paint. All we needed was stencil or something to help us paint on the words. That’s when I remembered those foam bath letters, that I almost got rid of but didn’t because I am a hoarder! I cut the pants into strips, he painted the letters and stamped them on, then we stitched the pieces onto the Tee all messy like to look cool…. 😉 He really wanted the pink covered up somehow so we splattered a little paint here and there. He loved how it looked, so did his buddies and teacher. He got his tickets and now wants to make one for his Teacher to wear! 

 

Another Bulletin Board

7 Jan

I just love the tree boards I see on the web and this one really popped. I knew it would be perfect for one of the teachers up at school. I put it up for her at the first of the year and it has stayed up displaying all the kids art work and crafts of the month. It is still one of my favorite trees I have seen! The idea again was found on Pinterest (what did I do before this site??). This was my inspiration picture. From the blog http://theverybusykindergarten.blogspot.com/ tons and tons of cute ideas found here.

I changed it up a bit and this is what I came up with. Turned out pretty cute , really loving penguins these days! Can’t tell very well on the photo but I used a cotton sheet to make the snow hill and it added great texture.
