Chick and Egg Art

I’m guest posting today at The Ribbon Retreat Blog.  Check it out!

But first…

Today I have a FABULOUS Easter craft that is as unique as it is cute.  Check out this lovely project.   Yup, those are real eggs I saved from the trash. The chick in the egg makes my heart smile every time I see it.  Isn’t he so cute?  Cheep, cheep..

This project is super easy to make.  Begin with your background paper, whatever color you’d like.  Using hot glue, apply the eggs.  I preferred the staggered pattern, but you might like them lined up straight.  It’s up to you!  If you ever wondered how chicks stay warm inside the egg, you’ll find out.  Those shells are AMAZING heat conductors so watch your fingers.

Now to make your own pom pom chick.  First get your favorite yellow yarn and any fork.  Wrap the yarn around the fork 70-90 times depending on how full you want your pom pom. 

Tie it tight between the tines of the fork.

Slip it off of the fork turn it over and tie it again really tight.

Almost done…  Now, cut each of the little loops using pointed scissors.

You are now left with a scraggly looking pom pom.  Simply trim it up to make it even.  I think of it as giving my little chick a hair cut.  Make a second pom pom and trim it  to make it smaller for the chick’s head.  I added little eyes using “puffy” paint and a tiny triangle beak using orange felt.

I finished off the project by adding cute polka dot ribbon around the edges and popping it into a frame without glass.  I hope you enjoyed my Chick and Egg art!

 

Easter Math Activities

Welcome!  While you are here why not follow along or pin something?

There are TONS of fun things that you can “play/do” with your child around Easter to help them practice essential beginning math skills.

Number plastic eggs 1-12 and have your child place them in an egg carton in order by number.  Have children add the correct quantity of jelly beans into each egg.

Practice number writing using this ADORABLE Easter number writing practice page.

If you’d like a PDF of this page click on the link How Many Easter Page

To practice simple addition place random numbers of jelly beans into plastic eggs and snap shut.  Have your child choose 2 eggs from the basket.  I would print out the worksheet and place it in a page protector {use white boards markers}.  Have your child draw and/or write how many jelly beans were found in each egg and then determine HOW MANY ALL TOGETHER.   Here are 2 different options based on child’s ability.

For more fun hands-on math ask your child to complete a pattern out of jelly beans OR plastic Easter egg halves {to prevent annoying rolling}.

Have fun with MATH every day!  Happy Easter!

Easter LOVE Note Printables

Easter is almost here!  WOW!!!  Only 2 months until Summer break in Colorado.  The countdown begins.  🙂

Do you ever feel you don’t do enough?  Well, I want to be the Mom who has kids that write love notes to their Grandparents & Great Grandparents every holiday.  Unfortunately, I’m not WONDER Mom and sometimes those little things that mean so much get lost in the shuffle. 🙁

This year is going to be different!  I’ve created a simple page that my kids can personalize with their own art, be it painted or drawn to send to loved ones.

Easter Subway Art

Yeah!  It’s Friday and my Big Guy turns 6 today! Feels like he was just born.  Enough about me, let’s get to some Easter fun!  I love this printable and I hope you will too.

I don’t know about you but I’m tired of Easter Subway art that is all about the bunny.  Although we enjoy Easter baskets and egg hunts at our house I want to glorify the One who rose from the dead on Easter, my Savior.  So I created my own Easter Subway Art to bring glory to Jesus, the Risen One!  I had it printed on canvas in the modern Easter colors.  To download a huge version {to use as you please} simply click on the style you want.
