Easy Fall Tree Activity for Toddlers

Today we are sharing a super easy Fall tree activity for toddlers that we created. It is much simpler than some of the sticky walls we've created before and just allows toddlers to explore the fun of sticky paper and leaves and colors. clear contact paperfabric leavesclear tapebrown paper bag (cut up to look like a tree trunk)scissors To create the Fall tree you first need to make a tree trunk out of brown paper and adhere it to the wall. Next you need to cut out a large oval from the clear contact paper and attach it to the wall (sticky side out) so that it fits above the trunk like a treetop. Lastly, lay out your fabric Fall leaves on the floor and encourage your child to add and remove Fall leaves from the Fall tree. We took breaks in between sticking the leaves on the tree to just throw the leaves and make them fall all over his face.

Science Activity for Kids: Lemon Volcano

That’s right today we are making Lemon Volcanoes! I’m back with our STEAM Summer Camp series and today’s topic is SMELL. While Lemon Volcanoes are indirectly related to smell, it’s not the primary focus of the project, they certainly are one of the nicest smelling volcanoes we’ve ever played with! It makes for an extra special sensory experience. Before we get started let me offer a quick disclaimer- these are not giant volcanic eruptions but rather bubbly small eruptions you can make harnessing the chemical reaction of citric acid, found in citrus fruits, and baking soda.

It may not work out perfectly for the first time, but it is worth trying. You will need some food coloring, scissors, white roses and some patience.

Then just take some plastic cups, fill them with water and put different colors of food coloring into them.

Name Activities for Preschoolers. I am taking some time over our break to adjust some of the activities in our daily schedule.

Name Activities for Preschoolers

There are certain activities that just weren’t working out the way I envisioned them. One of these areas is our “Name and Letter Fun” time. Although the activities we have been doing are working well, we haven’t been consistent about doing them daily. In an attempt to fix this, I put together five bags for each child. I used some very basic supplies that we had around the house. The kids will do each activity once per week. Start To Grow: Milk Container Gardening.

Cabeça de capim

Teremos dois meses pela frente que exigirão muuita paciência e criatividade. Isso me lembra que quando as meninas eram pequenas, e o mundo não era tão tecnológico, minha mãe apareceu com uns bonecos chamados "Cabeça-de-Capim". Fizeram muito sucesso, pela interatividade e iniciação na prática da jardinagem: regar, cuidar e observar os "cabelos" crescerem.

Vamos ver se o Cabeça-de-capim, Boneco-de-alpiste, Cabeça-de-batata, Boneco Ecológico, Peruca-de-alpiste, Boneco Orgânico... ou seja lá o nome que os pequenos quiserem dar, fará o mesmo sucesso nestes tempos tão cheios de Ipadtudo. Material básico: - Meia-calça - Serragem ou areia (de preferência aquela lavada por ser mais grossa) - Alpiste ou painço - Cola (pode ser para tecido ou cola quente) - Para montar a carinha use retalhos de feltro ou de tecido ou de E.V.A.; ou botões; ou lã... ou o que tiver à mão.
