For Mother's Day, we decided to reuse empty yogurt cups. We painted the cups with a terracotta paint. While we waited for the cups to dry, the children made pom poms out of yarn scarps. We then used green florist wire for securing the pom poms. Placed a cube of clay in the center of the cup and inserted the flowers. Happy Mother's Day to all!

To celebrate the first day of Spring we are making trees. The children have been painting green squares on newspaper in preparation.
They painted the TP rolls brown for the trunck. After decorating the folage of their tree we used a template to cut out the top, glued and inserted on to the TP roll.
Here is the fun they had painting the puffy trees!

Instead of the usual masks for Carnival we made giant eye glasses. We cut them out of cardboard and then painted them. We decorated them with some paint and glitter. We punched out holes for the children to see out of and added string for securing them to their heads.

I cut out heart shapes out of cardboard. Cardboard proved to be too thick for first graders to cut out on their own. We traced the heart on to colored printer paper cut it out and glued it to the cardboard. The children made crepe paper balls and glued them on to the heart. Made two hole and strung white satin ribbon and made a bow (leave some slack for hanging).
