Sparkling Leaves

Here is a fun and easy leaf crafts for the fall. I love it, it is easy for little one and it uses glitter. Everyone loves glitter.
We used: wax paper, glue, paint brush, leaf and glitter.
Paint the glue on the some wax paper. Place the leave on top.
Paint more glue onto the leave and on the side next to the leaf on the wax paper.
Sprinkle glitter. Fold wax paper over top the leave. Press flat.

Allow time for glue to dry and cut around the outside edges of leaf.

Fall Preschool Activities

I am not working at the preschool this year because my husband and I are opening a Veterinary Hospital, but until things get finished, I have been helping at the preschool.

These are some of the activities we have been doing:

We read,"There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves".

The kids held up leaves and cards with the things the Old Woman swallowed. The kids loves waving the leaves around.

They made some scarecrows.

Then we made apple sauce.
And made a chart on who liked it and who did not.
Last week we read, "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake"

The kids made cupcakes with glitter sprinkles.

Cheyanne's First Daisy Meeting

Cheyanne was so excited about her first Daisy meeting.

We did not have to leave until 6:10 but at 5:30 she said,"I am going to wait in the car until it is time to go."

Then after hearing all the fun things she was going to do she said," Mommy, can I go with the troop and not you." My little girl is growing up too fast.

She was still proud to wear this tunic, even though it was Caity's, and I had just ripped the petals off for her and it is a size too big.

Caity's T-shirt

Caity had a white shirt that had stains on it, so she decided to take some Sharpies and decorate it.
It turned out great. Now she can wear the shirt again with her creation on it.
I think I am going to hand wash it at least the first few time. I am not sure how much, if any of that will come off.

Halloween Hanging Decorations

Oh, how I love making Halloween decorations. This is my first Halloween decoration of the year.

They are easy to make and look great hanging in the windows or over the table.

To make them make 2 fans from construction paper and staple them together.
Then decorate with construction paper, scissors, glue and tape.

Bottle Cap Bracelets

Caity saw these bracelets in a Justice catalog and said how much she liked them. Of course being the crafty and cheap (more of the second one),I said, "We can make those."

So after Dad drank a beer, we scooped up his bottle cap and got to work.
There are so many different supplies you could use to make these, but this is what we used:

Bottle cap, glue stick, glue gun, large elastic pony tail holders and a small picture from a magazine or catalog.
We traced the bottle cap circle around a picture and cut it out. Used the glue stick to glue the picture in the cap.

Then hot glued the pony tail holders to the back of the bottle cap.
