Simple Pig Craft

Happy Wednesday!  Follow Creative Preschool Resources by e-mail to get consistent fun ideas to do with the little ones in your life.

We are almost done with our Farm unit, {wish I could have spent a week on each animal} but we are ending with pigs.

I recently saw a super cute pig on pinterest, but decided that buying 24 pink large plates and 24 pink small plates was a little out of my budget for a craft project.

So…  I got out my computer tools and whipped up my own simplified version of the project.  I just printed the shapes (focus on circle, triangle and rectangle) on pink construction paper, the kids cut them out and lastly we added a pink tail and google eyes.  They are super cute and were MUCH cheaper than the paper plate version.

Here’s our group of pigs in the mud!  Aren’t they cute?  I love how they all turned out a little different and their curly little tales are super fun!

Spring Bird Craft

 

Happy Friday!  This time of year my days are beyond full.  My kids have lots of end of the year activities to attend as well as my own preschool.  Sometimes I feel like a chicken with my head cut off running from concerts, to art shows, to luaus, to baseball practice.  How about you, is your Spring crazy?

To celebrate Spring in preschool we are making these adorable baby birds in a nest.  I absolutely LOVE how they turned out.  It’s simply adorable and such an easy project.

Supplies:

  • Brown Paper Bag
  • Nest filling
  • Broken egg shell
  • Small and Large Pom Poms
  • Glue (I use tacky glue)
  • Orange Felt
  • Google eyes or Black puffy paint

First roll the paper bag into a bird nest.  You can have the kids do this, but sometimes they rip it a little bit {that just adds to the natural look, right?}.

Second have the kids fill the nest with anything, fake grass, real grass twigs etc.  I opted for paper grass since 1) it was on sale and 2) I loved the fun colors.

Third, add the empty egg shell to the “nest”.  It’s already adorable isn’t it?  It makes me think of baby animals and all of the new Spring growth.

Using a large and small pom pom have the little ones make a bird.  Add an orange felt triangle nose and eyes.  I made one with google eyes and another with black puffy paint eyes.  They are both cute, but in different ways.

So, are you going to make a cute little birdie with someone you love?  I hope your kids are inspired to enjoy Spring and you are too.  Have an amazing weekend and if the weather is nice, get outside with those you love and explore this beautiful world!

Happy crafting!

Letter T – Teddy Bear Sorting

Whew!  We’re cruising right along with the alphabet and amazingly made it to letter T already!  With our focus on teddy bears we’ll be doing some gummy bear sorting and graphing.  To practice our fine motor skills we’ll be using tweezers to do the sorting.

Do you love integrating language arts with Math as much as I do?  Here’s a PDF printable for the chant Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around.  Use this to teach the kids the poem/song or print off a copy for each child and allow them to color it and search for letter Tt in the chant.

Hope you enjoy some teddy bear fun!

Letter P Penguin

When learning about letter Pp what better way is there to learn then to make a giant P into a cute penguin?  It don’t think there is a cuter way.  🙂  So here is our giant P penguin.  The letter P is made from an entire sheet of 12×18 construction paper.  I simply used various colors of construction paper to make all of the rest of the parts and the kids get to glue him together.  To add a little flair we made them Rockhopper Penguins and added feathers to the top of his head.  Happy penguin making!

Jonah and the Big Fish

I just love watching the kids eyes light up when they hear the story of Jonah for the first time and they hear about the big fish swallowing Jonah…  just priceless.  To help us remember all of the fun we’ve had with the Jonah story we are making these adorable {at least I think so} paper stuffed whales.  Your kids will LOVE making these with you!
