I recently found this site, and love all of the creative ideas. They are hosting a summer picnic, full of giveaways and new ideas. I love a good picnic! This week's picnic "dish" is an introduction. Here's mine. My blog's name is a take on my husband's favorite architectural movement, Arts and Crafts. To read more, look here. I am currently a stay at home mom, of two boys, but I taught kindergarten for 6 years previously. As a former kindergarten teacher, I am always looking for fun, educational things to do with my two little boys (ages 4 and 18 months). I am contemplating either starting my own preschool, or just home preschooling my son this fall. Or maybe I'll send him to preschool (sniff...). I am new to the blogging world, so I haven't posted many learning activities. I have found so many wonderful ideas from others, so I am hoping to be able to share my ideas too. Here are some activities that I have recently tried out with my 4 year old that have been a big hit.
Going on a Bug Hunt
Fishing for Good Food
I also made some lacing cards earlier this year (Andrew loves to sew them at church), and a fun felt fishing game, too.
I am looking forward to more great ideas during this summer's picnic.
Nice to meet you too!!! I love those lacing cards-what a great idea! The fish game is cute too-my 3 yr old would love that. I can just see you going around the store with a magnet trying to find something to use :)ReplyDelete
It's wonderful to meet other moms doing fun stuff with their kids. I used to live in New Mexico when I was younger. I miss the Southwest - some day we'll be back to visit.ReplyDelete
Fun ideas. I am excited to see what else you post...we are always looking for fun activities.ReplyDelete
Nice to "meet" you!! I'm really excited about getting to know everyone during this picnic!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you joined in on the picnic, it's my first time over here and I always like to meet another former kindergarten teacher:) I hope to go back to that grade level when I return to teaching, how about you? Can't wait to see all the fun stuff you post on here!ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining the picnic! I am so glad I got to read a bit about you and your family! It is fun to find moms that I have things in common with. As a former teacher I really enjoy finding things to do with my kids at home too. We had our 3 yo enrolled in preschool for next year, but just decided that we are going to try to do a co-op type school of our own next year by working with friends and neighbors who have kids the same age. I'll look forward to keeping up with you and what types of creative activities you are doing with your little ones!
Nice to meet you! I love finding new blogs and ideas that I can share with Emily. I am really enjoying yours.ReplyDelete
Nice to meet you. I'm also a teacher. I love to teach my twin girls.ReplyDelete
It's so nice to meet you. Your blog is AWESOME!!! I have already found 4 ideas I can't wait to try. I love your quiet book, I have been searching everywhere for ideas too, but couldn't find any I really liked. Yours are GREAT, best yet. You inspired me to try to make my own.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my blog, it's great to meet you!ReplyDelete
I love your felt fishing game - and the way you took a magnet to the store to figure out what to use as magnetic fish eyes!
I'm new to the blogging thing too. I taught kindergarten as my student teaching semester this past fall and I loved it. I never thought I would, but that's the grade I want to teach now. Can't wait to see your ideas.ReplyDelete
I have only been blogging since December. Glad to find someone to take this blogging journey with. I also teach kindergarten. Finishing up my 9th year as we speak.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to learning many new ideas with you and our fellow picnicers this summer.
Nice to meet you - Thanks for stopping by! I love ABC & 123 so it is nice to meet other bloggers who enjoy the same thing. You have great craft ideas!ReplyDelete
