I think it would be neat to receive ideas for us all to use!!!!!
I love simple crafts and fun things for the children to do!!!!!

One that I just did yesterday was jello painting- take a pc. of cardstock paper, use glue- write your name or I heart u or anything you want then sprinkle jello over it and let dry overnight!!! Something simple and the children loved it!!!!!!!

That does sound like fun!!

This one takes two parts, but the kids loved it. I had the kids paint a big piece of white paper. We mixed to primary colors to make a new one. After they were dry, I cut out the shape of a letter we were talking about. They picked out a piece of paper/color to glue the letters onto.

At halloween this year, I got a big roll of craft paper, then had each child lie down on the paper. I traced them out head to toe, then had them color and decorate their "Me's" with what they wanted to dress up as. I told them it didn't have to be what they were actually dressing up as, but that they could be anything at all. The kids loved it!

I love the Lady bug idea! We're talking about the letter L in a couple of weeks and I had one other Ladybug project. This one would go GREAT with it Thanks.

We made a homemade bird suet cake, and a hanging bird feeder on Wednesday when school was cancelled.

One easy science project we do involves milk, food coloring & dish soap.
Basically you put a small amount of milk (1/2 cup??) in a microwaveable clear bowl. Heat for 15-20 seconds, just enough to get the milk warm. You can do this for each child or if you only have 2-3 kids one will work but the kids after seeing it may want to do it on their own. After you heat the milk you add 2-3 drops of different food colors on the milk in various places. Don't stir it in; just place the drops on the milk. Dip the tip of a toothpick into liquid dish soap & place it in the center of the bowl. The colors will instantly gravitate toward the edges of the bowl. It's very cool to watch & is a quick & easy science project.
