When Hunter was learning the letter A, we made these really simple aliens. First the kids colored a coffee filter with washable markers. Then, they sprayed a light mist of water over the coffee filter, which caused the colors to spread together. Once they were dry they added some different shapes to create their aliens. Hailey’s is on top, then Hunter’s is on the left, and Harper’s is on the right.
Super simple, super cute
Back in January we had the letter S for our letter of the week. I didn’t take many pictures of the activities we did, and since it’s been a while, I don’t really remember much :-/
So, here are the few pictures I did take:
Hunter and Harper both made discovery bottles that looked like a snowstorm.
Hailey, Hunter, and Harper all made a snowstorm painting. They dipped shower puffs into white paint and stamped it onto some paper.
Hunter had fun playing with his bristle blocks.
Just because they are too cute
Hunter put snowflake stickers onto the letter S.
I assume it was a fun week, but it’s been too long for me to actually remember hahaha
Our first week back to school in January after our Christmas break, we focused on the letter W. A couple days into the week we (Rich) decided we were taking a trip to Disney World, leaving in a couple of days. So, our letter W activities got put on hold and finished up when we got home from our trip. Here are the activities we did:
We focused on the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak for the week. I love to pick one book for our focus book and then read it everyday and base our activities around that book.
We used the Where the Wild Things Are pack from Royal Baloo. We rolled a die and then Hunter stamped the number that was rolled.
Harper always likes to be a part of whatever Hunter is doing.
Hunter made a little book about the Wild Things that he could read all by himself.
He used water colors to paint a W.
Harper kept busy by playing with stickers.
Hunter did a shadow matching game. Some of the wild things were pretty hard to match up, but he did great!

I put out some different colored shapes in the colors of the Wild Things and the kids created their own Wild Thing.

We had lots of fun learning about the letter W!
Since it’s almost Easter I thought it would be the perfect time to finally post about some of the crafts we did at Christmas time hahaha. One day I’ll be all caught up with my posting, but today is not that day.
One of the projects we did was with oil pastels on black paper. I found step by step directions for an Oil Pastel Christmas Tree in a Snowstorm. I followed the directions and showed Hailey and Hunter what to do, step by step.
Of course, Harper wanted to be a part of our crafts too.
These pictures are the ones that Hailey, Hunter, and I did. I love how they turned out!!
Our next project was a really cute Reindeer Portrait from ARTventurous. First we drew the reindeer with a black oil pastel.
Then we painted them.
Hunter painted his reindeer too.
Harper painted herself, the table, and her reindeer.
Our completed reindeer.
This Jesus in the Manger is the project I had my preschool class do at Christmas time at our homeschool co-op. This is the picture that Hunter made. They turned out so cute!!
