Outdoor Color Match. For a fun time, put paint chip cards of different colors on a binder ring, and punch a large hole in each shade.
Go outside and try to match all the colors!! Clara is always up for any excuse to go outside, so this activity was an instant hit! We brought our swatches to a nearby park for some coloring matching fun!! There was lots of running — great exercise!! …and excitement when colors were matched! Some colors may be harder to find than others. So many different hues were found! You may even notice little things like the different shades of green on each side of the same leaf, or…. ….that larger dandelions are a shade darker than little ones.
And when you’re all done, why not take a break on a park bench to rest for awhile?? Have fun!! I linked this post to:Sunday Showcase @ Mom to 2 Posh Lil DivasLink and Learn @ No Time for Flash Cards. Quiet Time Boxes. I saw the best idea on another blog... i dont remember where or i would tell you, but anyways the idea was for quite time boxes.
They are little activity kits for your childs quiet time. Hudson very rarely takes a nap any more, but he needs the down time and at least the opportunity for a nap. So i bought bins from wal-mart for about 2 bucks each and filled them with stuff we have around the house. There ends up being so many toys around our house that while the kids like the toy, they just dont get a chance to play with it very often. I put 2 or 3 books and a toy or activity in each box and labeled it with the day of the week.
They fit great in his closet so i can have easy access to them. Quiet Book. I'm really excited to share this project with you.
Several months ago someone put the idea into my head that I should make some quiet books. This is one project that I've never really had the desire to do, but that little seed kept growing until one day I found myself drawing up the templates and then at JoAnn's buying the supplies. It really was an easy project, but extremely time consuming (and I was making two at once.) Here are the results: Covers and cover page Circus Monkey The balloons velcro on and the wheel turns to reveal different colors. Paint Pallet The paint splotches velcro on and you can use the paint brush to pretend to paint everything in the quiet book!
Season Tree and Barn Snap on flowers for spring, green leaves for summer, and autumn leaves for fall--or take them all off for winter. I love these little finger puppets that were inspired from Homemade by Jill. To have a surprise when you open the doors. Road Map This is another one of my favorites. Weaving Tennis Racket. Wacky Sacks. Hopscotch. Car mat. Flannel Friday: Letter Puzzles. [Edited to add: I cannot upload these puzzles, as I do not have the right to distribute Microsoft Office clipart.
They are fairly easy to make; give it a try! My apologies for not being able to help more!] A few weeks back, I started doing outreach storytime to some local daycares. These are the daycares that walk over to the library during the nice weather seasons (April though October), and I really wanted to continue doing storytimes for them even during our off-weather-season.
Since I’m doing the storytimes in different rooms (three different rooms), have only crayons or glue as supplies available, am doing different age groups instead of an all-ages storytime, and I don’t have my flannelboard easel or shelf or seats or a thousand other things — I decided to do an alphabet series only for my outreach kids. Like I did with my colors series, I wanted to repeat a flannelboard activity from week to week. I probably won’t be posting any more of these (at least for Flannel Friday!) Church Busy Binder.
