Paper Weaving

One of our fun art projects in the curriculum is paper weaving. The kids started by picking their colors. and cutting one paper into strips. Then the other paper was folded in half and cut into lines, but not all the way to the end.

Here Sweet Daughter is working with her pink/purple papers. She cut her strips fairly wide and loved this project. 

Sweet Son selected yellow/orange and cut very small strips. His took much longer to complete, but it also turned out really well.

When they were finished I had both laminated and they used them for placemats. This is a great fine motor activity and the final products were impressive.

 This post features Sweet Daughter and the many different ways you can sleep ON a bed and keep your feet warm.

 Those pillows make a great foot warmer.

Or you could just wear your Hello Kitty slippers, but remember to keep them off the bed.

Blankets also work for keeping your feet warm, especially when it's so cold with your feet on the floor.

Snow Day!!

Snow is so much better than ice. After the ice had mostly melted, we got hit with a real snow storm. The kids were thrilled.

It's not a snowman, but it's happy!

That's better. Real snow and plenty of fun things to do in it.

Clearly the first step is to mow it... um... You might be from the South if you child doesn't know what a snow blower is.
