Too Nice to Stay Inside Today!

Sunny and temps in the mid 80's today! 
 I decided to pack everything up and spend the day outside!  We had a blast!
 This is "Sidewalk Chalk Paint".  I saw it on Pinterest and had to try it out.  The kids loved it!
  Colors were much brighter than regular sidewalk chalk. 
 Super easy to make.......
 2 Tablespoons cornstarch, 2 Tablespoons water, and 5 drops food coloring.

We are learning about different habitats this week.  They loved playing with the sensory table outside!

 Some bowling fun!
 ( Number recognition and forest animals)
 Click on the picture above to get these bowling pins.
 Paper, glue, and nature. 
 All we needed to build habitats!


  1. I love your Mother's Day idea with the picture of the children holding the flowers in a frame. How did you do it and where did you get the frames?

  2. Thank you! Really easy!! I took pictures of my students with one arm extended and making a fist. (tell them to hold their fist like they are holding flowers for mom, you want the fist to be turned the correct way.) Use a utility knife to cut a small slit at the top and bottom of their fist on the photo. I used the 4 X 6 plastic frames from Wal-Mart. My sweet husband drilled a small hole at the top of each frame for the flower to stick out. Note: Pre-mark the top of each frame before drilling. Each photo will need a slightly different spot. Insert flower into hole in top of frame, then weave it in and out of the fist in the photo. I also cut 4 X 6 sheets of paper and had the kids write a message on it, I put this in the back of the frame. (It covers up the back of the stem and is a cherished memory of their writing). Hope that helped!!
