Mothers Day

My class made these cute butterflies (girls) and tractors (boys) for Mother's Day.  They are a lot of work but so worth it!  These keepsakes will be treasured a long time and look great hanging on the wall.  Some of my kids have had older siblings in my class that also made these when they were in kindergarten.   The only negative thing about these is that the teacher does all the work.  However, if you use acrylic paint on cardstock for the foot impressions, every little line and wrinkle on the kids feet shows up......too cute!!

ABC cute and easy!

These magnets were made by using the flat glass vase fillers like you find at Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart or in my case, The Dollar Tree.   Cut circles to fit using scrapbook paper.  Write letters using a sharpie or find letter stickers.  Then glue the round papers to the flat side of the glass pieces using E600 glue.  Next, hot glue a magnet to the back.  Easy, Cute, Cheap!!

Sight Word Surprise......Water Color Easter Bunny & Eggs

This printable came from Heidi Songs!  The kids had the best time painting these pictures.  A white crayon was used to write the sight words on the eggs before they were painted.  I used 22 different sight words.  When the pictures were dry we used them as flash cards to practice our sight words.  Thanks Heidi!!!

Easter Bunny Feet

A friend of mine gave me this pattern.  It is so cute.  I know we get it, but the kids always say, "Where's his body?"  I try to explain that it's a poem about the Easter Bunnies feet.

The Ears Are The Best Part......

These bunnies are so cute.  The kids each got to eat a small chocolate bunny after we made these.  Most of the kids did bite the ear first!

Easter Bunny/Duck

I don't know if anyone has seen this pattern before, but it is a duck on one side and a bunny on the other side.  There is a cute little poem that we add to our bunny. 
 It says:  My easter bunny brings me luck, for when I turn him over he's a duck.

Chocolate Bunnies we made!

Fold a piece of construction paper in half length wise and trace the bunny pattern.  The kids cut it out and add the details.   Very cute!

They stand up like greeting cards.  Some of my girls got creative and added bows!
These are some the boys made.  I wondered why they all had red eyes (kinda scary....right?) but then it dawned on me, we currently have a little white bunny visiting our room and his eyes are pink.
