I want to start with a big THANK YOU to Deborah at Teach Preschool.
The links you have passed on have my views at an all time high. I won’t lie. . .I’ve been doing a little skipping, dancing and maybe a cartwheel or two. For those of you who have not come across Teach Preschool yet, let me tell you she is FANTASTIC! Make sure to check out her busy books, what a wonderful idea. If you are a Facebook junkie, you will love her Facebook Page. You will find links to all types of activities and preschool age blogs. Have I gushed enough? Onto today’s project!!!
We did this one in two parts. First the wrapping paper, then the accessory.
Crayon Bundle Wrapping Paper
I secured a few crayon bundles with rubber bands and left a few loose crayons. I also left out a few objects to be traced, but those went completely untouched. I cut two extra large pieces of paper; M and M were working before I even sat down.
Big M played around with moving the crayons in the bundle. He would position the yellow so it wouldn’t show, then move it down and use all four.
Tissue Paper Bow
I cut the tissue paper into rectangles about 5 x 7. I did NOT measure, and some of the rectangles are not even close to that size. I had M and M pick 10 pieces from the stack and arrange them however they liked.
Time to put it all together. I just can’t get over how cool the Handmade Stamp Print from yesterday is!
Now all that’s left is to sign the card!
This post is a part of the Mother’s day lesson plan.
