Graduation

My little cuties had their graduation ceremony and I just had to share the adorable hats that I made for them and a few other things that we did.  :)
 


 

To make them, I used bulletin board borders for the part that goes around their head.  I used foam sheets for the square on top, which I punched a hole through and stuck yarn through.  I hot-glued the yarn onto the other side.  Then I used two circle stickers that had cute graduation caps on them (from Dollar Tree) and put them back to back on the yarn.  I hot-glued the head band to the foam square.  Then to finish it off, I had them choose a color of puffy paint and I wrote their names.  For another pre-k class at my school, I made them in white.  They came out cute in both colors.  :)
 
Here's our cute Graduation Handprint poems too!  These poems are available in my TpT store and I've included poems for Preschool and Kindergarten!  There's also certificates in the pack too!

When they come on stage, instead of handing out the real certificates, we hand out plain printer paper rolled up and tied with ribbon.  Then we give the real certificates to the parents...no bent certificates that way!  :)
 

 
 
 
Happy Teaching,

Father's Day


With Father's Day quickly approaching...here's a cute little Father's Day craft and craftivity that I made with my students and wanted to share with you. 
 

 We made a picture frame out of jumbo popsicle sticks and I had the kiddos glue screws and nuts to it, then I wrote for them #1 DAD in puffy paint.  We then placed a picture of the child wearing a construction hat in each one.  I think they turned out super cute!

This is the card we made to go with the frame.  It's a toolbox! Isn't it just WAY TOO CUTE!!

Here's the inside of the toolbox card.  The paper says "I couldn't have built a better dad!"

I actually made mine with my students before I created the pack...so for you, it's much cuter!!  I've also included options for dad, grandpa, and uncle.  There's a Mr. Fix-it Coloring page too! You can click any of the pics to be taken to my TpT store to get your own copy of this adorable Father's Day pack!

Doc McStuffins Sensory Fun

Well, it's summer time, so I get to have some fun with my little ones at home.  I have a daughter who is 4 and my son is 2.  We've been doing some homeschooling this week, which my daughter LOVES!  I'll have to remember to take more pics, but here's some of the Doc McStuffins sensory bin that we had fun exploring this week. 




In the bin (from Dollar Tree) I included some cotton balls, bandaids, the pieces from my daughter's Doc McStuffins dr. bag (a stethoscope, syringe, otoscope, hammer, and bandaid) and I included the chipboard pieces that came in the book we bought.  My daughter wore her Doc lab coat while she explored.  My kiddos enjoyed exploring and fishing out the pieces of chipboard from the book.  The pieces are like a puzzle, so after they found them, we put them back in the book where they belong.  :) 
 
I bought some other fun things to go with our learning this week...I'll post more pics this week.
