Clover Cards

A few days ago, I posted about a Shamrock Garland LB(3) and I made. 

We had a little bit of the paper left over, so I decided to use it to make these cute little clover cards to send to our loved ones for St. Patrick's Day!

Here's how it all came about:
  • I mixed up some green tempera paint and let LB go to town painting 3 pieces of white paper however he wanted to.

  • After it dried, I traced big shamrock shapes onto it and cut them out for the Shamrock Garland. And with the scraps leftover, I traced smaller shamrocks and cut those out to use for cards!

  • I simply cut and folded several pieces of white paper for the card. I made sure they were a size that would fit in the envelopes I had on hand. 

  • To give the clover a little bit more dimension, I cut a scrap piece of craft foam and glued it on the card, and glued the clover onto that. This helps it pop out a little bit from the paper.

  • We're going to write a happy little greeting inside and mail it off to a few loved ones far away!

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
(This game is also a great way for preschoolers to learn!) 
This Dinosaur building activity uses craft foam, which means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are truly 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 produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
