Apparently when you mix sprinkler time with sidewalk chalk time, you end up with a beautiful mess! Just saturate your chalk in water and draw on the wet ground and watch your little ones “paint” a masterpiece!
Can you tell we LOVE Pom Poms over here? In fact, my kids first learned to love Poms Poms when grandma would watch them and let them “Pop the Pom Poms,” and essentially throw a bag of hundreds of Poms all over the house, some of which I am still finding in random nooks andContinue reading “Pom Poms Color Sorting”
This is one of my favorite snack crafts we have done. It worked great with my toddler and my preschooler. WARNING: Many froot loops were consumed during the making of this craft – and maybe some with glue. All you need to complete this at home is: Froot loops cereal Bowl School glue Printout orContinue reading “Froot Loops Rainbow Craft”
We are focusing on colors this week, exploring primary colors and color-mixing. We found these great picture books at our local library using a SUBJECT search for “Colors — juvenile fiction.” Using these search terms in a subject search will help you find children’s fiction about colors instead of everything in the collection that mentionsContinue reading “Books About Colors”
My two year old loves this super simple matching game. And she’s really good at it! I originally made it for my son to match lower case letters to uppercase and decided to modify it so my daughter could start with matching upper case to upper case. I used 1/3 poster board, drew 26 circlesContinue reading “ABC’s Matching Game!”
We love doing Sprinkles crafts (and eating them). When we do letters, I usually have my son write the letters in marker then trace with school glue and then pour on the sprinkles! Don’t forget to use a deep pan or craft tray when doing this at home or sprinkles will go everywhere!

They are like 50 cents a bag and a great way for my kids to see and eat their ABCs. And I love thatContinue reading “Homemade ABCs Soup”
We made these Pom Pom popsicle sticks to practice making shapes and letters and decided to spruce them up with colorful Pom Poms, because, why not? Pom poms make everything more fun! Without a curved line, you can still make about 15 letters and several different shapes depending on how many sticks you make. WeContinue reading “Pom Poms Popsicle Stick Letters”
I’ve had these magnet letters for four years and as you can see they have been well-loved by both kids! We use them to learn the alphabet and learning to blend letter sounds and sight words. I just used the $4 set of Munchkin foam letters and numbers, some craft magnet buttons, and hot glueContinue reading “DIY Foam Alphabet Magnets”
We bought this Scholastic book set a couple of years ago and we have read each book countless times. There are 26 books in the set (one for each letter of the alphabet). Each book features stories with characters and words that all start with the same letter and includes a search and find andContinue reading “AlphaTales Book Set”
