I saw this idea over at Helping Little Hands and fell in love with it. Why? Because it fits us perfectly. I love activities that are connected to books because by reading the same book over and over for days (or even weeks) on end kids learn what to expect and can start to "tell the story" themselves. Right now my boys LOVE playing in laundry baskets so an activity that includes playing in one is perfect!
Notes from a very red kitchen (I think she is the sister to the writer of the above blog . .). I liked the math/number ideas she gives to go along with the book "This Old Man."
This looks like a fun idea to do outside from The Path Before Me. I think we are going to hold off on this idea until this summer when it is warm enough for the ice cubes to melt and paint though.
One Hip Mom gives a great tutorial for making a tool belt - a cute idea for an Easter basket idea.
Nested. There is a great tutorial included too.
Everyday Celebrate gives a tutorial for a colors quiet book - she also has items available in her etsy store to help make this craft easier. We are starting to focus more on colors so I really like this idea.
smartbottomenterprises and finish up this project for spring.
Funny days with mommy and maddie and show how to make a cupcake liner bouquet.
Muffin Tin Mom gives another easy craft for making a paper chick. I love that I do the prep work (cutting, etc) and than the boys get to be creative.
One Mom, Five Boys and a Bundle of Joy delivers!
The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman gives a cute Easter Wreath idea for kids to make. I'm not sure if I will have dandelions by Easter but I think that using pom poms would work too.
