Marble Painting Apple

You will need:
construction paper
cake pan
couple of marbles or glass beads

I cut out an apple for our fruit theme this week. I put it in a cake pan and squirted a little bit of yellow and green paint. I put the beads in and had my son just roll them around to paint his apple. Really easy and mess free painting!

Transportation- Printable Blog

I found an AWESOME blog browsing on Pinterest. Our theme this last week was transportation. I printed off these awesome preschool activities. They have games, handwriting practice, puzzles, etc. I put them in a sheet protector so we can reuse them in the future.

Slippery Soap Poster

We talked about hygiene yesterday. This was our craft. You can print off the soap in black and white or color here. We put it together and glued it on a piece of scrapbook paper and colored around it with markers. We'll probably put it in the bathroom to remind him to wash his hands.

Macaroni Kid

We've started having themes for each week and mini themes of the day that go with that week. It's mostly to help me think of ideas in a way that it makes more sense for me. So this week is All About Me week. Yesterday we talked about My Body. We made this little Macaroni kid for our art of the day.

You will need:
construction paper
two dry beans

I drew a little guy with toes and fingers and everything. I had to help my son put the glue on the lines, he's still learning :) Then he put the macaroni to build a little macaroni kid, and we used two black beans for the eyes. We talked about his body parts and how many of each part he has.
