|A visit to the library|
|Never open a hot door, find another exit--- this was one of my favorite projects to do with them! So cute!|
|5 Little Firefighters, I got the idea from here: http://tippytoecrafts.blogspot.com/2011/10/five-little-firefighters.html|
Five little firefighters sleeping in a row.
Ring goes the bell, down the pole they go.
They jump on the engine and put out the fire.
Now they're back home, but they sure are tired.

I'm going to try really hard to keep this blog updated! I just gotta remember to take pictures each day! Here's a couple projects that we did in the past week:
Angels, hand them each pick the color they wanted their angel body, then I traced the outline on the paper and let them cut it out, added angel wings and a circle head and let them draw their face. Love this picture- the angel is busy singing!
Handprint trees, worked best to do 4 trees on the bottom layer, 3 on the next, 2 then 1 for the top. (I put a line of glue and gave them the number of trees that they could put on there, so it somewhat looked like a tree when we were done) Added a star for the top and red circles for our holly berries and the brown rectangle for the trunk.
Paint a paperplate brown, added rickrack for the headband, foam pieces for the rest of the face. One suggestion-- I let them choose the foam shapes for the mouth (I had all sizes in the bowl), I think that littler ones would look better. of course, they all choose the biggest shapes that they could find!
Foam Turtle we put together from oriental trading
Candy cane-- the kids loved to do this project, I had the candy cane shape pre-cut then we used painters tape to stripe our candy cane, they painted the red and we removed the tape and they were amazed!
Puffy Paint Gingerbread
Mix shaving cream and glue with paint and let them paint. These feel so cool when they dry! --the more paint they put on, the longer it takes for this to dry!
One of our Christmas bulletin boards, Santa's Helpers
They each glittered the elf bib and santa hat, then I printed out their picture.
My all time favorite project to do!
Trace their foot and hands on white foam (sometimes I spray glitter on these before I cut them out)
Add their picture and bend a pipe cleaner for the angel halo. This bulletin board we titled, Nicci's Little Angels... how perfect, my daycare name :)
Here's a couple things we did for Thanksgiving:
Turkeys-- feathers are handprints, body is their shoe traced
Indian Corn with buttons... the kids really liked this project!
One of our Thanksgiving bulletin boards, No Turkeys Here! Turkeys with disguise glasses
I made these little pilgrims to hang up, probably one of my favorite things :)
Here's a closer look!

Candy corn man
Cut an orange candy corn shape, add white for the bottom and the top. Add arms & legs.
Cut out a mummy shape, add tissue/kleenex squares over the mummy
Itsy Bitsy Spider

We made these after reading the story, Owl Babies, use cotton batting for the owl bodies, add yellow/black eyes. This is one of my favorite stories!
Use black plates, add features as seen above
Trace foot and hands on black paper, add triange feet, beak and white circle eyes.
