Fall Tree Craft

17
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.

Harper made one too- her very first painting.

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

Bee Crafty Kids- Turkey Fun

15
Nov

Welcome back to the Bee Crafty Kids link up that I am co-hosting with To The Moon and Back and Look! We’re Learning.

We are learning all about Thanksgiving this month and this week we did some turkey crafts.

Turkey Fun

First up- we made turkey hats

(I have to mention that we did this on our Wacky Wednesday fun day, which I’ll be posting about later.  But, Hailey is wearing her pajamas inside out for Wacky Wednesday.  Hunter is wearing his pajamas because he insists on wearing his Lightning McQueen pajama shirt almost every day.)

Turkey Fun

We made another fun turkey, that I had made with Hailey a few years ago.  It’s amazing how much she has changed since we made turkeys a few years ago.

Hailey made a pattern with her feathers.

Hailey had written a turkey poem, so she added her poem to the front of her turkey.

Bee Crafty Kids- Spider Glyph

01
Nov

Welcome back to the Bee Crafty Kids link up that I am co-hosting with To The Moon and Back and Look! We’re Learning.

We are starting a fun unit all about spiders… at least I’m hoping it will be fun.  I like making spider crafts, but when it comes to looking at real spiders it’s not quite so fun :-)

Our first spider craft was a fun spider glyph I got from Spiders: A Creepy Crawly Extravaganza.

Spider Glyph

I set up all the parts of the craft and the directions.
Some of the directions included- add a bow if you are girl, add stripes on the legs if fall is your favorite season, etc.

Spider Glyph

Hunter is happy anytime he can glue, so he had fun making his spider.

Spider Glyph

Hailey had fun creating her spider and following the directions.

Putting everything together.

Rich made one too, and when my parents came over on Halloween they each made one as well.

Poppins Book Nook- Seasons

28
Oct

PoppinsBookNook

The theme this month for the Poppins Book Nook is seasons.

leaf8

We read the book “The reasons for the Seasons” by Gail Gibbons and learned why the seasons change.

Apple Unit

Since the current season is fall and we have been working on a fall unit study, I decided to focus on fall and leaves.  This binder has the different mini-units that we are covering this fall- apples, leaves, etc.

Poppins Book Nook

Each mini-unit has a section in the binder.  This is the leaf section with this printable from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom glued onto a divider for our leaf section.

Poppins Book Nook

Since we made a lapbook for our apple study, I decided to do something a little smaller for our leaf study.  Hailey glued these few activities onto the back side of the divider for the leaf mini-unit.

Poppins Book Nook

The Leaves book comes from Enchanted Learning.

You can find the accordion style book about why leaves change color here.

Poppins Book Nook

I wrote leaf related vocabulary words on leaf shaped cards and we did several activities with those.

Poppins Book Nook

There are many pages of work that Hailey did in this mini-unit.  This leaf observation page comes from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom and the super fun leaf unit she has available.

Poppins Book Nook

Hailey also did a leaf rubbing.

Fall Tree Craft

She made this Fall Tree Craft, using a leaf to paint.

We also made this Fall Tree Handprint Craft.

Hailey and Hunter dressed up in the color of chlorophyll one day.  It was amazing how excited Hailey was about doing this and how quickly she got ready for school!
