Bee Crafty Kids- The Mayflower

22
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 have been learning all about Thanksgiving this month, and having lots of fun!  This week we focused on the Pilgrims and what it was like on the Mayflower.  Then we made our own Mayflower.

Mayflower Activity

Hunter and Hailey painted a box brown.  We actually ran out of brown paint, so we had a little mini-lesson on which colors you can mix together to get brown.

The next day, Hailey added some windows.

Hailey made a sign and we added some sails.

Fall Tree Craft

 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 have been doing a mini leaf unit and have had some fun art projects along with it.  Here is one that I think turned out really cute:

Fall Tree Craft

First Hailey and Hunter glued a tree that I cut out onto some construction paper.

Then, using leaves we had just collected from our backyard, they painted leaves onto their trees.

They both really enjoyed painting with leaves.

Tot School

Tot School

Hunter is 21 months old.

We had another fun week at Tot School!  I finally feel like I’m getting into a routine with homeschooling Hailey, so the activities I did with Hunter this week were a bit more purposeful than they have been in the last few weeks.

Tot School

Hunter made this cute “A is for Alligator” that I found at Totally Tots.  Hailey loves to work with Hunter and help him, and of course he loves to have her help.

Tot School

A is for Alligator.

Tot School

Hunter is also learning the color red and circles, so he had fun stamping red circles.

Tot School

Hunter loves the printables from the Zoomin Movin Alphabet.  This week he seemed to understand that he can stamp the do-a-dot marker onto the circles on the paper.

Tot School

Hunter and Hailey doing some toe-touches while working on their memory verse.

Having fun dancing.

Tot School

Hunter made this apple parts craft that went in his Apple Totbook, which I will be sharing sometime this week.

Tot School

We also learned all about Johnny Appleseed this week and made a cute craft about him, which I will also share this week.

Tot School

Hunter loved pretending to be Johnny Appleseed and wearing a pot on his head.

Tot School

Hailey and Hunter watched a short movie (about 17 minutes) about Johnny Appleseed on YouTube.

Tot School

Hunter made an apple basket craft, which I will also share this week.

Apple Tree Craft

This Apple Tree Activity turned out super cute!

Apple Core Craft

Hunter enjoyed making this Apple Core Craft with Hailey.

Tot School

We are using Road Trip USA for Hailey’s geography curriculum and we made a Robin Craft this week, to go along with Connecticut.  Hunter loves doing everything that Hailey does :-)

Stop by 1+1+1=1 to see what the other tots were up to this week.

Apple Core Craft

Here is another simple, but cute apple craft:

Apple Core Craft

You’ll need a paper plate. red paint, green, brown and black construction paper.

Apple Core Craft

When we went to start the activity I realized I only had one paper plate left, so Hailey and Hunter had to work together.  First, they painted the ends of the paper plate.

Apple Core Craft

Next they added some seeds.

Apple Core Craft

Then Hailey added the stem and leaves.

Cute apple core :-)
