Our Crafts N Things

It has been over 2 months since Harper’s first birthday party, and I am just getting around to posting pictures. I keep telling myself that I am going to catch up on my blogging, but there just doesn’t seem to be time to do it.

Our Crafts N Things

Harper loves Minnie Mouse, so we decided on a Minnie Mouse themed party.

Harper’s chair all decorated for the occasion.

African Savanna Diorama

24
Oct

We are using Sassafras Science this year, and so far we are both really enjoying it! We have been studying Zoology and it has been so much fun!  The first habitat we studied was the African Savanna.  It worked out perfectly with our trip to Disney World, where we stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge.

 Hailey made an African Savanna diorama to show what she had learned.  She painted, created trees, made some green grass for the wet season, and colored printables for the African Savanna animals.

Fall Tree Craft

Oct

We made these really easy fall trees, and they turned out cute. I love easy and cute art projects!

Our Crafts N Things

I gave Hunter a piece of brown, already cut out, to use as a tree trunk.  Then I put some fall colored paint onto a paper plate and gave him a shower pouf to stamp some leaves on the tree.

Our Crafts N Things

Harper made one too- her very first painting.

Our Crafts N Things

Hailey also made one, but she painted her own tree trunk.

Weekly Wrap Up

Oct

Our Crafts N Things

Since we are several days into October, I thought it was time I finished up our activities from our summer learning fun.  Our last theme for the summer was Jack and Beanstalk.  Of course, we read Jack and Beanstalk every day, and several times some days.  Both boys really liked the story.

Our Crafts N Things

Hunter and Anthony colored some bags of gold.

Our Crafts N Things

They practiced their cutting.

Then they matched up the pictures they had cut out and glued them.

Our Crafts N Things

They worked on a “which one is different” page.

Our Crafts N Things

Anthony cut out some numbers and then glued them onto the square that had that number of beans.

Our Crafts N Things

They worked on a q-tip painting of the letter B for beans and J for Jack.

Our Crafts N Things

I made a little beanstalk and Anthony thought it was fun to have his superheros climb up the beanstalk.

Our Crafts N Things

We put beans and a wet paper towel into a ziploc bag, then hung them up on a window.  It was fun to watch the beans sprout.

Our Crafts N Things

We made this little picture- some beans on the bottom, green tissue paper for the beanstalk and some clouds.

(Printables from 1+1+1=1)

Jack and the Beanstalk was such a fun little unit! We had a great time!!
