Snowman Ornament

My friend Karen and I were having an online discussion about kid-made ornaments tonight. What else do moms have to talk about? lol She told me about this snowman ornament that her son made two years ago.




As you can see, you use a plastic or glass ball ornament. I'm sure red, green, or blue would work fine. Dip the child's fingertips in white paint to make the body of the snowman. After the paint dries you can use a permanent marker or paint to add the eyes, nose, and buttons. Then add the name and date to the back and a nice bow on top. Very cute and simple. This is a great keepsake. I think I might try this with my kids this year.

If you have something you'd like to share, just shoot me an email.

Reindeer Handprint Craft



I did this reindeer activity with my preschoolers last year. (Thanks to my friend Karen for sending me this picture so that I didn't have to dig my stuff out.) The head/nose of the reindeer is made with the child's foot and the antlers are made with hands. You could use this for a sweatshirt, tote bag, apron, banner (as shown), or just on a piece of cardstock. The eyes are wiggle eyes and the nose is a pom-pom. Here is a poem that you could use:

This isn't just a reindeer
As you can plainly see.
I made it with my hands
Which are a part of me.
It comes with lots of love
Especially to say
I hope you have a very,
Merry Christmas Day!

Easy Ornament Idea



My kids made these ornaments at church last night. They are pretty easy to make. You just buy clear bulb ornaments and have the kids attach Christmas foam stickers to them. If you wanted to embellish them a little you could add beads, sequins, glitter, etc. Just know that you may need a few extra in case some of them break. lol

Oopsie Dazie Giveaway

Cindy, a SAHM of two, started Oopsie Dazie because she couldn’t find any unique hair accessories for her daughter. She started with clips and grew to headbands and pony tail holders. What sets Oopsie Dazie apart is the endless number of ribbon and topper combinations. It’s very possible that a clip could be a one of a kind. The offerings are always changing as well, so you can keep coming back to see what is new. It’s impossible for someone to own everything Cindy makes, because the options are endless. Plus, they are absolutely affordable and shipping is free!

The winner of this giveaway will receive two products of their choice from Oopsie Dazie. There are two ways to win the prize from Cindy.

1) Leave a comment below telling which product from Oopsie Dazie is your favorite.

2) Install the Little Fun; Little Learning giveaway button on your blog (the code is at the top right of the screen) or post about these giveaways on your website. If you choose option 2, please leave a separate comment with a link to your site or post. This will just make it easier to keep track of how many entries you have.

Christmas Ornament Ideas

These are some pictures of ornaments that we have made over the years. I hope these will give you some ideas for ornaments that you can make with your children.


These were made during my daughter's first year of preschool. The one on the left is (unfortunately) made of construction paper. Needless to say, it won't hold up well. The one on the right is made of the craft foam kits from Oriental Trading. They're very inexpensive. I'm not thrilled with the Christmas tree one though. As you can see, the red berries fall off very easily.


We made these last year at preschool. Thankfully, we were able to use a dye cut machine to make the Christmas trees. We used some old buttons that we had in the supply closet and some glitter for the garland. I think the foam only costs us $2. These were very thrifty ornaments! :)


My daughter came home with the stocking on the left. I think it was made with a kit, but it is made from craft foam. I'm sure you could also make this with cardstock or fabric. The one on the right is simply beads strung onto pipe cleaner. This is one of my daughter's favorite ornaments.

Do you have any hand made ornaments that you'd like to share with us? Leave a link below or tell us about it.

Four Seasons Activity

My daughter brought this home from school this week. I thought it was a cute idea. Just divide the paper into four sections and write the seasons on the paper. For spring use blue fingerprints, summer is a sun made from a yellow circle, fall is foam leaf stickers, and winter is foam snowflake stickers.

Santa Claus Handprint Craft

A reader at DLTK sent in this idea. The only paint colors you need are red and white.

Paint your child's hand with white paint on the tip of the thumb, white on the fingers for Santa's beard, red on the ball of the hand with a little white under it, and pink on the palm (mix the white and red to make the pink).

After the paint dries, use markers to make Santa's face, cut around the paper, punch a hole in the top, and add a string to hang the ornament.

Gingerbread House



Now that I am not teaching, I have a preschool website and I need lots of ideas. lol It seems when I was in "teacher mode" I could think of ideas all day long. Thankfully, one of my best friends sends me pictures of her daughter's creations.

To make the gingerbread house (which really isn't made of gingerbread, lol) they used a small milk carton for the center to hold up the crackers. The exterior is made of graham crackers, icing, and candy.

Have fun and enjoy making a mess! :)

Christmas Tree Craft


The Make it From Scratch blog carnival is up at Stop the Ride. As usual, there are a lot of good ideas to choose from. One of my favorite ideas is Stephanie's Christmas tree craft. This is perfect for gift giving. Stephanie made her tree into a wall hanging, but this idea would work well on a sweatshirt, tote bag, or apron. How thrifty!

I Am So Thankful

Today we went to my brother's house for Thanksgiving dinner. He lives about 2 1/2 hours from us. My sister-in-law's family was there and a few people that she works with. Now we're at my parent's house, which is another 2 hours from my brother.

Tomorrow my hubby and I are actually going to get away by ourselves and leave the kids with my parents for an overnight trip. Yay! I'm so excited! We haven't been away by ourselves in years. I would like to go to Cape Hatteras. I've never been there and have wanted to go for many years. It's a little farther away then we'd like to travel for a 1 1/2 day get away, so we'll probably go somewhere closer.

Anyway, I'm sitting here all by myself. Everyone else is asleep. I'm used to keeping the late night blogging hours. I guess I need to get to bed early while I can.

Here are some of the things I am so grateful for:

  • Words cannot tell how grateful I am for Jesus giving it all for me. These songs express a little about how I feel - Jesus, You Gave it All and Love You So Much.
  • My parents who taught me of God's goodness and modeled His love for me.
  • My husband. He loves God, me, and his children. He comes home every night and he provides for his family.
  • My children. I prayed for them many years before they were born. I pray that one day they'll experience a relationship with Jesus and know the peace and joy that He brings.
  • God's provisions. We have a nice house, working vehicles, clothes to wear, and food to eat each day.
  • For the United States. I am so very thankful for the men and women that have fought and sacrificed for the freedoms that we have.
  • My true friends that love me in spite of my failures and are there for me when no one else is.
  • For holidays such as today when we set aside time and reflect upon our blessings.

I can't even begin to describe how I feel right now. I am gushing with gratefulness.

We love because He first loved us. I John 4:19

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I hope your day is surrounded by the ones you love.

Due to the holidays, there will not be a Fun-Filled Friday post this week. Next week I plan to begin posting lots of Christmas ideas. Be sure to check out the archives. There's plenty there to choose from.

By the way, what are you thankful for?

Thanksgiving Place Mat

Here is a cute idea for a Thanksgiving place mat. You write "I am thankful for . . . " and then have the child draw pictures of things for which they're thankful. It looks like this particular mat has die cut leaves around it. You could cut some out yourself and/or have your child help you. If you don't feel too creative, then a plain colored border would work too.

Have your children made anything for Thanksgiving?

Sesame Street Advisory



Have you heard the news? According to a warning on Volumes 1 and 2, Sesame Street: Old School is for adults only. "These early Sesame Street episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today's preschool child."

Say what? At a recent all-ages home screening, a hush fell over the room.
“What did they do to us?” asked one Gen-X mother of two, finally. The show
rolled, and the sweet trauma came flooding back. What they did to us was
hard-core. Man, was that scene rough. The masonry on the dingy brownstone at
123 Sesame Street, where the closeted Ernie and Bert shared a dismal
basement apartment, was deteriorating. Cookie Monster was on a fast track to
diabetes. Oscar’s depression was untreated. Prozacky Elmo didn’t exist.

When I was growing up, I never watched Sesame Street. I guess I'm safe from all the trauma. lol

What do you think about this?

Nick Jr Celebrates Thanksgiving

I have noticed something pretty aggravating about the Nick Jr. site--whenever you find something you like, you'd better bookmark it. The site is constantly changing. One day you could find something that you like and the next day you go to look for and you could search for a while.


Thankfully, last week I bookmarked their Thanksgiving page for you. There is plenty to do. There are recipes, a Thanksgiving tree, place cards, placemats, printables, craft ideas, and ideas to help your child stay active.

Yesterday, I was on my phone with a good friend and her child was about to drive her nuts. I told her to click on Nick Jr. and let her child have fun. She immediately found a Holly Hobbie game she wanted to play. Now here's my tip: Save special stuff like this for when you absolutely have to have something to keep your child busy. That way, being on this site or any other site won't become a normal day activity that will be "no big deal" to them. When you're cooking Thanksgiving dinner and need your child out of your way and fast, tips like these can really be a help. :)
Have you found any great sites? Please leave them in the comments.

Thanksgiving Turkey Craft

My friend sent these pictures to me today. Her daughter made this in preschool.

  • brown material - burlap (Don't forget to pick up some extra for the vests.)
  • feathers - fingers painted different colors
  • body - brown construction paper
  • beak - yellow craft foam (construction paper would work fine too)
  • eyes - wiggle eyes
  • wattle - red construction paper
  • legs - yellow paint

The SPUMPS is the name of their preschool.

Fun-Filled Friday Part 2: Happy Thanksgiving!

Just as I had hoped, here is Part 2 of Fun-Filled Friday. Hope you enjoy all these ideas. Be sure to check back later throughout the week. I'm hoping to have more Thanksgiving ideas for you.

1) Thankful Tree



Isn't this Thankful Tree cute? I found this idea over at Boasting in My Weakness. To get started, you'll need a tree. (You can make one from brown posterboard, construction paper, felt, etc. You could also use a branch placed in a flower pot and then hang the leaves on the tree.) Then you'll need to cut out some leaves of different fall colors. Ask your family, "What are you most thankful to God for?" Then write each family member's response on a leaf and stick it to the tree. Repeat this daily until Thanksgiving. You can read them all on Thanksgiving day.

It is important for us to learn to be thankful for what we have. Being thankful helps us learn to be content and happy, no matter our circumstances.

2) Thanksgiving Scripture Place Cards

Boasting in My Weakness also has an idea for scripture place cards. Your kids could help decorate these with glitter, stickers, etc.

3) Thanksgiving Coloring Pages

Printables for Kids has free Thanksgiving coloring pages.

Have fun!

Fun-Filled Friday Part 1: Fall Songs


I feel badly that I haven't put more time into giving you ideas. When I was teaching, I had ideas constantly flowing through my head. I was in the teaching mode. Now that I'm staying home, I'm having to do more searching. I did some digging in the basement today and found some of the songs we used to sing for fall and Thanksgiving. Sorry, I have no idea where these came from or I would give proper credit. As you can see, I have labeled this Fun-Filled Friday Part 1. I hope to post more ideas today.

Hello Mr. Turkey
tune of If You're Happy and You Know It

Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
With a gobble, gobble, gobble,
And a wobble, wobble, wobble,
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?

Gobbly, Wobbly, Turkeys
tune of Ten Little Indians

One little, two little, three little turkeys,
Gobbly, wobbly, bobbly turkeys,
hurry, scurry, worry turkeys,
It's Thanksgiving Day!

Thank you, Thank you, This We Say
tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Thank you for the earth and sky. (Form circle with fingertips; then point to sky.)
Thank you for the birds that fly. (Flap arms.)
Thank you for the food we grow. (Cup hands together; then slide one arm upward as if to grow.)
Thank you for the streams that flow. (Flutter fingers as hands move to side)
Thank you, thank you this we say. (Point to lips.)
Thanks for all we have today! (Spread arms out wide.)

Gobble, Gobble
tune of Pop! Goes the Weasel

A turkey is a funny bird.
His head goes wobble, wobble.
He knows just one funny word-
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.

Leaves are Falling
tune of Jingle Bells

Leaves are falling
Leaves are falling
One fell on my nose

Leaves are falling
Leaves are falling
One fell on my toes.

Leaves are falling
Leaves are falling
One fell on my head.

Leaves are falling
Leaves are falling
Yellow, orange, and red.

Sesame Street Website


I found the Sesame Street website today. Perhaps you've known about it and I'm just now getting a clue. lol Anyway, the site looks great!

This Potty Time Game will be good for my 2-year-old. He wants to be potty trained, but gets stubborn sometimes. Maybe this will give him the encouragement he needs.

Check out their games, stories, art, music, mail, and Elmo's World. They also have a parent's section.

Enjoy!

Fun-Filled Friday: Thanksgiving Ideas


It's hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. I'm sure some of you are already looking for Thanksgiving arts & crafts ideas, so here are some to inspire you and get you started.


Thankful Pumpkins

For each pumpkin, cut out the inside portion of a large paper plate. Paint the remaining rim orange. Cut a white construction paper circle a little bit larger than the open area inside the rim; then glue the paper to the back of the rim. Have each child add a green or brown construction paper stem to their pumpkin. Around the top of the orange part of the pumpkin, use a permanent marker to write, "I am thankful for . . .". Then have the child draw and color something to complete the sentence.

Optional: If you have a classroom of pumpkins, you can mount these to a bulletin board and make a vine to go around the pumpkins. You could also change this design and use orange construction paper instead of painting the paper plates.

Rustic vests

My first year teaching preschool, I actually made these for each of my preschoolers. This is before I had children of my own, but still the project took me so long that I was left frazzled and wondering, "What was I thinking?" LOL The children loved their vests and they wore them to the family Thanksgiving dinner at the school. Anyway, on to the project.

You will need 1/2 yard of burlap for each child's vest. Fold the burlap once for an 18-inch square. Cut a v shape in the fold for the neck opening. Then cut from the bottom of the front panel to the bottom of the v-shaped opening. This will be the front of the vest. Pin the sides at least half way up. Using a plastic yarn needle and yarn, sew the sides as pinned and remove the pins. (I chose to sew the sides of the vest myself. My students were 3&4 years old.) Draw a Native American design onto the vest with permanent markers. (Supervision is needed with permanent markers!)

Optional: Using bright colors of yarn, straight stitch over the lines. Finish the vest with additional stitching as desired. (I skipped this step. It was all I could do get enough of these done for everyone. lol) If you have only one child to make this for, then you could try this step (or if you actually have some help).

This idea is from a very old, but still good Mailbox magazine.

Under the Sea Video



I found an awesome fullscreen flash video today from National Geographic. Here are some uses I thought of:
  • use it when studying the letter "O" and talk about the ocean
  • great for homeschool moms to use when studying the ocean
  • classroom teachers could show it
  • my little 2-year-old would love to watch it
  • Watch it yourself. Seriously, the colors are beautiful and I think anyone would enjoy watching.

Our Fall Y'all Bloggy Winner

It has been a weird week. If you've been reading then you'll know that my family has been in Florida for a few days. Before we left I posted giveaways at all four of my blogs. Whew! I can't even begin to tell you the comments I've been getting. My other 3 blogs are hosted by Wordpress and if you have a new commenter, then you have to approve the comment. Then for each comment I get at my blogs, an email comes to my inbox. Needless to say, I've had tons of emails!!!! lol

Ok, ok, on to the giveaway. I chose commenter #42 because my children are ages 4 & 2. Congratulations to And Then There Were3. Be sure to look in your inbox for an email from me.

Thanks to everyone for participating. I hope to have some more giveaways going on soon. If you would like to give away a prize, please contact me.

Sorry

Sorry I've not been around the past few days. Our family took a spontaneous trip to Florida. The trip here was horrible. My 2 and 4 year old did not want to ride. You know how that goes. Hopefully, the trip returning home will be better.

We're here visiting my husband's parents. They're moving into a different house, so we've been helping them unpack. Their house is right on the canal, so it's pretty cool to watch the boats drive by. There is also a screened in pool. Yes, my husband and kids got in the pool today. It sounds crazy to get in a pool in November. I heard today that North Carolina got freezing weather last night. It's funny to be here and to be enjoying the warm weather.

In case you don't already know, there is a giveaway going on. This is my first one for Little Fun; Little Learning. Be sure to leave a comment with the giveaway announcement so that you can be entered in the drawing.

I'll try to get back on track in a few days. Have a great weekend and don't forget to set your clocks back! :o)
