Watermelon Napkin Holder


We made this cute napkin holder that looks like a watermelon.  It’s perfect for summer picnics!

Paint the inside circle of a paper plate red.

Once the red is dry, paint the outside circle green.

Use a Q-tip to add black dots (seeds) to the red.

Once it dries, fold the paper plate in half.

Then fold the corners in, as pictured, and glue them shut.  I used a clothespin to hold the edges closed while the glue dried.

Cut a slit in the watermelon.

Completed napkin holder.



Last week for science I told Hailey she could pick anything she wanted to learn about.  I gave her this worksheet I found and she went outside to find something to pick for science.

She decided to pick a leaf.

Hailey filled out this Observing Nature worksheet about her leaf.

Page 2 of the worksheet.

We also had an Observe a Leaf worksheet which Hailey filled out and then did a leaf rubbing.

Hailey had to answer several questions about her leaf, including how many inches long it was.

We also talked about the different parts of a leaf and started a science journal so she can keep track of what she does this summer for science.

Fourth of July Flag Craft


Hailey has been busy learning about the 4th of July… here is another craft she did.

Paint 5 popsicle sticks red and paint 4 popsicle sticks white.

Cut a piece of blue construction paper and add stars to it.  Hailey made sure that she had exactly 50 stars.

Glue the red and white popsicle sticks onto 2 popsicle sticks.

We talked about what the flag represents and what it means when we say the Pledge of Allegiance.
