I'm BACK! Ready to share more ideas for preschool crafts with you.
Sorry for the absence but I too am one of the "sandwich generation" and had to quickly depart to take care of an aging parent. All is well again and I can catch up with my readers.
I receive so many wonderful ideas from around the world that I would like to share. This one is so timely, a "green" idea for recycling, creative and just so much fun.
Heather sent this idea to create an "Igloo Reading Village".
Igloo Reading Village
Need: 200 1 gallon milk jugs--ask parents for these--free is great!!
Glue--(hot glue is quickest but care must be taken)
My class has made an igloo. We made an IGLOO out of more than 200 1 gallon milk jugs.
We use it as a reading center. How cool is this! I bet you will have lots of eager readers in this center.
Art Work for the Walls:
Need: Paper, chalk, paste or glue, coconut, raisins.
Directions: Draw outline of a snowman on black paper with chalk. Spread paste over snowman. Sprinkle shredded coconut over the paste. Use raisins for eyes, mouth, buttons!
These are just a couple of ideas that show imagination knows no bounds!
I hope you can use these. Send me your ideas and I will be sure to share them here.
