For the last day of our spring theme we made a cute spring counting book. Rather than show all of the materials in one large group I am going to show you how we made each page of the book. This is something I found in a Mailbox magazine and printed out but you could easily make this yourself.
First Hailey cut the pages apart. She did an excellent job cutting and staying pretty close to the black line!
For the first page- Hailey colored the word blue and then added a little blue square of construction paper to represent the sky. We also glued each page onto a piece of construction paper for durability and to make it easier to staple everything together at the end to make it into a book.
Hailey colored the word yellow and then added two circles of tissue paper for the suns.
After Hailey did some coloring I gave her three pieces of orange felt to make the kites.
Hailey colored everything brown and then added the wiggle eyes.
Hailey glued on some little cotton balls for the bunnies tails.
We added purple pom poms to this page for the flowers after Hailey colored everything purple.
This was Hailey’s favorite page- she put her finger onto a red stamp pad (a “washable” stamp pad). The she stamped her finger onto the paper. I added some lines and dots to make it look like ladybugs.
Hailey glued on 8 pieces of green yarn for this page.
Once everything was dry I added a title page (“It Must Be Spring Time!”) and stapled everything together to make it into a book. It turned out really cute- and it was a fun to tie our spring theme together with colors and counting.
