It's Nursery Rhyme Time!

Have fun with these Nursery Rhyme activities! 

Make a Paper Mache Humpty Dumpty by dipping newspaper strips into a flour/water mixture, then covering an inflated balloon.  Attach arms, legs, and large google eyes to it after it has dried and hardened.

Count plums with Little Jack Horner by using an aluminum pie pan.

Use yarn and a paper plate to weave an Itsy Bitsy Spider web.


Cookie and Candy Activities

If your children/students are like mine, their eyes light up when presented with the occasional sweet treat.  Why not use that excitement to teach a variety of subjects and concepts?  "A Sweet Thematic Unit" uses cookies, candy, and ice cream to teach Math, Language Arts, and Science/Social Studies.  Art activities are provided also.  Before you panic with the thought of your kiddos being on a sugar rush all day, most of the activities are printables and do not involve consuming the sweet treats.

Fun Winter Activities

The cold weather is a great introduction for winter related topics, such as snow and mittens.  By creating winter portraits, making large cotton ball snowmen, and matching lowercase scarves to uppercase snowmen, etc., winter can be fun for the kids indoors and outdoors.
