I taught the kids all about these tiny beetles and then we got to work on making some. I got my idea from here, but I changed it a bit. We started with these materials: Rolled up strips of black paper, wiggle eyes on glue dots, wings, black dots (that I made with a hole punch), and heads that were oval and had a small accordion-folded strip on them.

Art Unit Study Packet 2 + {10 Notebooking Art Page Printables} It took me a day or two longer to blog because on Thursday, the Erskine family featured my Free 7 Step Planner on Homeschool Freebie of the Day.

Kids Spring Crafts As the snow melts and the weather (hopefully) warms it's time to turn to our attention to baby birds hatching, flowers blooming, butterflies emerging and rainbows coming from the rainy weather.

These spring crafts are all made with fun materials, many of which you most likely already have in your home. As always, we created and tested all of these crafts in our own home so we can assure you that they are all fun and child-friendly!

Egg Carton Mini 'Copters - the craft train It’s come to my attention that the crafts on our blog are (just a little) on the girly side.

Mums, you will need to do the fiddly bits here, but the boys (or girls) can help out plenty, and they will love playing with these cute-as-custard little “toys”.
