Since we’re finishing up Letter M today, we had to do a marshmallow craft! We printed large M’s from Christine Clemente Stack’s Letter of the Week! and glued marshmallows on them, and ate some too…ugh…this was a sugary week! We used colored marshmallows too, more fun!
Binocular Craft on the fly!
We have been reading our Birds, Nests & Eggs book this week, so we decided to make some binoculars. You know, to aid in our ‘winter-time’ bird watching…maybe more of a summer activity! LOL! Oh well…like I said, this was ‘on the fly’. (No pun intended!)
So, I realize this would be easier with toilet paper rolls, or even a cut up paper towel roll, but for once in my life I don’t have an abundance of these! (Typically one would just have to go into a bathroom here, and there’d be one right there on the toilet paper holder…you know, cuz no one knows how to replace toilet paper here…I think they think little elves do it for them in the night!)
So we just decorated some construction paper, and then rolled them up. We put an accordion folded piece inbetween the tubes to spread them out a tad. Taped em up with painters tape, just cuz its fun and blue. Punched some holes in the ends, and tied on a piece of yarn, and voila! Bird Watchin’ Binoculars…definitely on the fly!
Hey, I didn’t say it was pretty people, but for kiddo’s 6 and under, they just think that’s the way its supposed to be LOL! Ooh, maybe I’ll start a new series…Friday on the Fly! Hahaha!
