This week our scripture memory was "Apart from me, you can do nothing." John 15:5
We studied creatures of the night!!! This was a craft filled week....partly because I needed some fall decorations around here, and partly because M loves anything requiring glue these days!
These owlets were made from toilet paper tubes after reading "Owl Babies"
We painted the tubes brown and pressed down the tops to form the points. We glued on teardrop shaped wings cut from scrapbook paper, and added wiggly eyes and a beak. I am amazed by all the craft ideas on the internet!!!!
We used our foot prints and a toilet paper tube to create a baby bat after reading "Stellaluna".
We completed a nocturnal and diurnal animal sort. We did this each day until M could do it all on his own.
Several other owl crafts, like this Cheerio Owl (from SpellOutLoud)
and Handprint Owl (from Making Learning Fun), were made.
G-G also made these super cute Owl Cookies with M.
Just lay a graham cracker on your plate. Cut a large marshmallow in half, creating two circles. Place them on the cracker. Lay yellow candy melts on the marshmallows, and a chocolate chip on top of that. Microwave for literally 5 seconds, just to make everything stick! They were yummy!
We also made a web of things we do at night...watch fireworks, wear pj's, eat dinner, go to bed, brush teeth, and use a flashlight, were a few of the ideas we came up with.
