Dec. 16 - Paper Cookies

Today's craft was making cookies -- out of paper! We had some friends over to play and I was going to make and decorate real cookies, but decided the paper variety would be fun, and much less messy!
I traced cookie shapes from cookie cutters, and then cut them out while the kids colored the papers.
We glued the "cookies" to the paper plate and then added the "candies."
The only bad thing was that all these pretend goodies left my mouth watering for some REAL ones!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. :) I love all the pictures you've got on yours. Looks like you are having a fun Christmas season with your kids.
I like this idea! Cute! I'm thinking it would even be fun to make some out of craft foam to use in B's play kitchen.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours and look forward to reading more about your adventures!

Hi there...discovered your blog through the Muffin Tin momma! I'm excited to have found it. I have two young ones and we homeschool! It will be fun to visit. I see you are just starting out! Good luck! You've got some cute ideas!
I'm the president of a moms club and we recently had a party where we had planned to decorate cookies and made the same decision -- we just cut gingerbread men shapes out of foam, and had stickers, glitter glue, markers, etc. (we also decorated food bank boxes at the same time). Lots of fun! Love your blog. :)

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)

And if you are wondering where to get SUPPLIES for these crafts and activities, check out this post!

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes. Using craft foam means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
