Munching Puppets Math

First we made our munching puppets...

Then we used small objects to do this worksheet with the puppets that they made.

Sight Word Road Map Game

First, we made houses and buildings for our "town".  After they decorated them, I wrote different numbers that I wanted my daughter to practice on them.

Then, I used masking tape to make the roads and I wrote different sight words for the street names.

We set up the houses on the streets and then started our delivery business.  I would tell my daughter which house number on what street needed a delivery with her little toy car.  For example, "Go to house #13 on See Street.  She thought it was just a fun activity, but little did she know she was actually practicing her sight words and numbers!

Leaf Printing

Okay, so if you live where I live, the leaves are long gone and snow is on its way, but here is my last  leaf craft that I meant to post weeks ago :)

We collected a whole bunch of different coloured leaves to do leaf printing.  It didn't turn out quite as well as I thought, but it was fun, nonetheless.

We put the leaves on a piece of watercolour paper and then covered them with paper towel.  We got out the toy hammer and started pounding.  My 3 yr. old son especially loved that part!


 The end result...

Leaf Garland

I love making leaf crafts!  This was a simple garland that the kids helped me with.  I pressed some leaves and then put them in between contact paper.  I cut them out and hole punched them at the top and strung them up.
