It’s never too early to start decorating for Halloween at our house! This year we are making black paper flying bats with neon designs in addition to our usual pumpkins and spiders!
Challenge your kids to create letter art for as many letters of the alphabet as they can. They can either choose to represent the letters of their name, or try to tackle the entire alphabet
Even if you can’t send Dad away on a beach vacation, you can use one of OOLY’s beachy printables to put him in that frame of mind!
My preschooler is very intrigued by learning to read lately. I must admit, it’s often difficult to get her to sit down and focus on a book for more than 20 seconds. I’ve found that playing games is an easy way to spark her interest in practicing her reading skills.
Combining two of her favorite activities, coloring and playing games, seemed like a great way to hold her interest long enough to practice reading. So, we made this “Build-a-Mermaid or Monster” game to color and play together.
When I was a child I could not wait to make valentines with my mom every year in early February. We would put all our materials out on the dining room table and spend an entire afternoon with doilies, clip art and rubber cement. I’m calling these valentines old school because there’s nothing digital involved with these fun love notes – just stickers, markers and a little creativity!
