Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy Book Craft for the Monthly Crafting Book Club.

I’m very excited to be a part of this months Crafting Book Clubs book series choice Ladybug Girl! The Ladybug Girl book series is one of PJs favorite set of books that he owns!!

Have you heard of the Ladybug Girl books?

Let me introduce you to our favorites!

Ladybug Girl is an adventurous character who is very active and great at using her imagination!  In this book Bingo, Ladybug Girls dog goes camping with Ladybug Girl and her family.  As she explores their campsite with Bingo, she casts a spell on an old tree wizard, rides a giant turtle rock, and sips tea in a secret garden.  In the mists of their play with mermaids and fairies Ladybug Girl is called into action after Bingo gets lost.  Then, she herself is lost.  How will they find their way out of the enchanted forest?  You will have to read to find out!

Ladybug Girl and Bumble Bee Boy by David Soman and Jackie Davis is the book my son relates to best!  It’s a story about a visit to the park where Ladybug Girl meets up with a fellow classmate.  The two friends want to play together but can’t agree upon what to play .  A common super hero interest is discovered when Ladybug girl asks her friend if he wants to play Ladybug Girl.  Soon, the two are rescuing Bingo from a scary monster, stopping a mean robot from crushing the play ground and more! In this adventure there are 4 total super insect heroes each with their own imaginative powers!!

 

Monthly Crafting Book Craft

Now comes the fun part.  After reading Ladybug Girl and Bumble Bee Boy (Alot!),  PJ and I did this fun craft together.  

What you will need

  • Broken crayons (yellows, reds, blacks of sorts)
  • Aluminum foil covered baking sheet
  • Preheated oven set at 200 degrees

Thats all you need!

I wanted to build on one of the themes of the Ladybug Girl books and that is to Make the best of what you have.  I think it is important to lead children by example so we used supplies we already had at the house and a little imagination.  Just like Ladybug Girl!!

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We gathered all shades of yellow, black, and red crayons.  It’s ok if they are broken.  

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peel the paper from the crayons.  This is great fine motor practice!

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I covered a baking sheet in aluminum foil.

image

image

 

 

 

 

I helped PJ fold the foil into inch wide strips.  He made two of these strips.

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We turned the foil strips on their sides and formed a ladybug shape out of one strip.  We made a simple oval for the bumblebee shape.  We trimmed the strips length down a bit, too.

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

We placed the insect shapes on the foil covered cooking sheet and filled them with shades of red or yellow.

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The different shades of each color made the final craft so much more beautiful!!  I placed the cookie sheet in the oven at 200 degrees for just a few minutes to melt the crayons.  

image

We added gray stripes to the yellow bee and black dots to the ladybug last.  Then returned the crayon bits back to the oven to melt but not too long.  Otherwise the colors will run into to each other and not appear to be dots or stripes at all.

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It does not take the NEW crayons long to cool.  PJ wanted to peel the foil off.  His craft insects were warm and brightly colored!

 

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are appealing to the senses..rough on one side from bubbling heat and smooth on the other.  Best of all they are so beautiful don’t you think!?

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I REALLY hope we have inspired you to read a Ladybug Girl book soon!

Thank you for reading,

Crystal 🙂

Quick and Easy Math or Literacy with Don’t Break The Ice Game

 

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

**This post may contain affiliate links provided for your convenience. Please read my disclosure and privacy page.

One of the best family games at our house growing up was Dont Break The Ice.  I remember getting this game for Christmas one year and playing it with my siblings.  It was sooo much fun to strategically tap out the blocks of ice without letting the red man fall off! We were allowed to get a little more rowdy in the house with this game as there was no real way to play it quietly:) All these reasons make the game perfect for play when the weather didn’t allow us to go outside.

Now a days the game uses a red bear in ice skates to stand on the ice, but it is still fun even at my age! 

image

I just had to get it for my kids as my mom had gotten her childhood favorites for me.  

It’s a bit noisey granted but when you and the kiddo are stuck indoors it’s a super fun game to pull out!  My son loved the hammering and was able to follow the simple goal of keeping the bear on the ice. There’s only one step- tap out the block of ice of your choice-before the next persons turn.  I’d highly recommend it for teaching children turn taking.

image

After PJ learned how to take turns I thought it would be fun if he could use the game to practice numbers and the alphabet.

One school holiday in his Kindergarten year I tried adding capital and lower case letters to the Don’t Break The Ice Game using dry erase markers. I tested one block first to see if the dry erase marker would wash off and wallah!  A baby wipe took it right off!

These pictures are a few years old but this is how we “played” by adding letters of the alphabet.

I  wrote about 10 or so upper case letters on ice blocks and the matching lower case letters on the remaining blocks.

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

We played as you usually would but each player recorded the letter of their knocked down ice block.  For this I drew columns on white paper and added the names of the players at the top.

image

 

 

Whoever can make the most Upper to lowercase matches after 5 games is the ABC Don’t Break The Ice champ!

We practiced Number Identification, too. 

I dotted the each ice block like the side of a die.  PJ practiced writing the numbers 1-6. Below, I’ll let the picture do the talking.

Quick and Easy Math or Literacey with Don't Break The Ice Game

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More ways to use Don’t Break the Ice

  • You can have your child practice addition: Each player adds up all the blocks they have.  Whoever has the largest total wins.
  • Practice word families, CVC words, or Nonsense words for letter sounds.
  • Write numbers instead of dots on the blocks and have them match numbers to the corresponding amount of dots.
  • For older children, practice multiplication: Group blocks by the number of dots they have. Three blocks of three dots make 3 x 3 = 9

What other ways can you think of to put a new twist on this old classic??  I would like to read about your learning fun so please comment below!

Thank you for reading!

Christmas Tree Math Make Ten

Christmas Tree Math Make Ten

 

**This post may contain affiliate links at no additional cost to you. Please see my disclosure page.  If you should chose to purchase from links I provide, my little family will greatly appreciate it!

  Mental math is a struggle for a lot of kids but memorizing math facts help children to process the calculation of math problems faster.

PJ and I have worked on memorizing facts that make 10 for weeks.  And I really needed to find a teaching tool that would make those facts STICK with him.

We repeatedly used worksheets that drill and I made flash cards, too.  We sang a song, watched a few math videos..He just wasn’t remembering it.

image

You have seen this at some point in your child, I’m sure.  They aren’t interested or have already given up trying to learn something because its extra hard for them.  They stare at you with a blank face. No matter how many times you go over it, it just isn’t go to stick in their memory or they fail to understand.

Sometimes you have to dig to find something that will help them because you are just as puzzled as they are as to how to help them.  image

Well this is how I felt each time I’d quiz PJ on his Math Facts That make Ten.  I desperately wanted to help my struggling son!

image

So, we pulled out his paints and worked on a fun craft he could be proud of in more ways than one!

 

Our SUPPLY LIST..

  • Paints 
  • Cardboard Toilet Paper Rolls
  • Paint Brush optional
  • Ruler
  • Pencil and Paper (we used white card stock)

 

PJ was failing to see the patterns in the math facts that make ten: They can be counted up and down. When kids have a mental picture of these math patterns they can draw from memory more easily.  Even if they don’t know a particular addend, they can count forward or backward using a math fact they already know until they have reached the math fact in question.

0 + 10 = 10

1 + 9 = 10

2 + 8 = 10

In PJs case he knew 5 + 5 = 10 every time I quizzed him.  

That math fact would be the math fact he could count up or down from to find the sum of other math facts to make 10 .

I asked PJ to make a Christmas picture using his paints and the TP rolls. (My idea was to write the math facts inside the painted TP roll circles of his picture.)  He wanted to make a Christmas tree! 

He asked me to help him draw a Christmas tree so I suggested he use a ruler to draw the outline of the tree.

Math Facts that make ten Christmas Tree

 

 

 

  

He drew an A shape tree without a bottom or trunk.

Math Facts That Make Ten Christmas Tree

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PJ chose to paint the edges of the TP rolls with a paint brush rather than dipping them in paint.

image

 I told him we were going to write the numbers of the math problems we had been practicing in the painted circles.  He stamped the outline of a Christmas tree with paint and the TP rolls. We let the picture dry.

image

 

 Mental Math

I explained to PJ that he could remember other math problems that equal ten by starting at the one problem he already knew. “Let’s start with what you know, 5 + 5 = 10.”  We practice counting backwards and forwards from 5.  Then, we recited all the other math facts that make ten by starting with 5 + 5 = 10 going forward and backward.

Looking For Patterns In Math

PJ was ready to write all the math facts down and see  how the addends for each fact either increased or decreased by one.  He wrote 0 + 10= 10 in the very top circle.

image

 Then, I asked him to write a number 1 in the left circle and number 9 in the right circle just under the first math fact.  He saw that 1+ 9 = 10

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PJ also saw that the numbers on each side of the Christmas Tree was either increasing or decreasing by one and both sides met at the doubles math fact, 5 + 5= 10.  He had created a picture pattern of his math facts to always remember!!

When I turned his picture over and asked him to tell me ALL the math facts that make 10, he recited them without a mistake for the first time!!  Happy Dance!

Thank you for reading!

10 Thankful Tree Ideas for the Whole Family..

Welcome back to what has become a series about 7 Days of Gratitude and Resources to Teach Kids!

10 Thankful Trees for the Whole Family

Our little family is learning we have more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving than ever before.

Our area has been hit with wild fires.  The smoke in the air is has so badly polluted the mountains in NC that we are at a code red for air quality.  The surrounding counties have been ablaze and we are VERY GRATEFUL of all the fire fighters out there this Holiday keeping us safe in our homes!!

I thought it would be fun to try continuing learning about gratitude with a homemade Thankful Tree.  I’ve seen them shared at my favorite blogs and after getting an excited “Yes!” from PJ, the vote was in.

 

Day 2 The Good Talk About Feelings and Gratitude

The time we spent crafting our thankful tree collecting branches on a nature walk and writing thoughts of gratitude has really helped PJ obtain a deeper sense of what gratitude is all about.  I hope your family can find the value in making a thankful tree not to mention the beauty it brings to your living room!

What You Will Need

  • Branches from a tree or bush
  • Paint brush and White Paint
  • Sand, rocks, stones or pinecones to hold the branches in place
  • A coffee container or Vase to put the branches in
  • Scissors, a pen, and Free Leaf Writing Printable

We went on a nice walk skipping over rocks of our river to collect branches that were just right to put in our vase.  The conversation was more of about how we both feel when we appreciate what others say to us.  I thought it would be a good starting point to talk with PJ about friends who make a point to say hello to us no matter how busy they are. We were keeping it simple talking about compliments, patience, and emotions when we found the perfect tree branch.

image

It’s leaves were almost too pretty to remove from the branch but PJ did that.  And we talked some more.  This time we talked about returning the feeling of gratitude to those PEOPLE who helped us feel grateful that they were simply our friends.  

image

Picking the leaves off the big branch, trimming, and dividing the branch took 40 minutes.  It was enough time to talk about what feelings we feel when we are grateful for those special people in our lives.  There’s a lot of emotions that we can show to express a grateful attitude you know! We covered as many as we could think of and what each emotion may look like to people we wanted to thank.  In the mix of our conversation we talked about what we could say to express our gratitude.  

image

To wrap up this day, we took turns acting out simple compliment, gestures, and facial expression “RETURNS” for those moments of gratitude.  The role play helped him connect good manners with others feelings.  Outwardly showing appreciation even when you don’t feel like it will give you an attitude of gratitude.  He was getting the idea that gratitude can be contagious!

That night we re-read the books about giving thanks for loved ones, simple things in life, and an attitude of gratitude from Day 1.

Day 3  A Tree That Blooms in Fall

PJ was READY for the really fun stuff the next morning!   He started Painting the branches white with a paint brush.  He tried hard to paint every tiny stem but the splotched effect turned out to be a masterpiece!

imageimageWhile we let the paint dry, we cut out the free leave writing printable.  Then, I asked to write on the leaves what he was thankful for.

This time his list include people, places, and everyday things (like his favorite flavored water and music).  Much different than Day 1!  

When the paint dried, sand from his sand box was added to a glass vase along with the painted branches.  You can be as creative as you want here.  I’ve seen cans, glass vases, tissue boxes,  and many beautiful fillings used to createThankful Trees.  And I’ll share a list at the end of this post.

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We punched a hole in each leaf and used string to hang it on the Thankful Tree.

image

He was excited that his leaf would be at the tip top of the tree!

Teaching my son gratitude is one of my top priorities this year.  Thankfully, there is an aboundance of resources out there this Thanksgiving!

And its not that I don’t think he doesnt know what being truly Thankful feels like.  

Rather,  I wondered how well he could explain what being thankful IS.  So, I asked him and he told me a list of all his favorite toys and activities.  Close but not what a mom wants her child to remember most about gratitude.  He did try:)

That afternoon we watched videos of kids answering questions like “What are you thankful for?” and looked up Graditude Activites for children.  I asked more questions trying to reword them so that he could give better answers.  I could tell we needed to work on connecting the feelings and emotions of being thankful with acts Gratitude, too.

 

Day 1 Making Connections

Books are one sure fire way to connect with PJ.  So, we headed to the library to check out books about Gratitude.  That night we read 3 great books!

 

Books to teach Gratitude

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art Garfunkle’s song was made into a children’s story book here.  We read the words and were able to talk about so many other words that describe being truly grateful.  This book tells how grateful thoughts can make you feel happier than keeping score of  what you want.

 

image

“Thank You, Thanksgiving” is a simple story about a little girl’s Thanksgiving Day.  She makes a trip to the grocery store pointing out all the simple things we take for granted from day to day like clouds, wild animals, warm clothing, and even whipped cream!  It was perfect for reminding us to be grateful of the simple things in life.

image

“A Thanksgiving Wish” by Michael Rosen was sniff* sad.  I’m glad we read this together because it covered another topic I’ve been wanting to teach PJ about and that was grieving the loss of a family member.  How many of us miss a lost loved one during the holidays??  Perfect book for reflecting upon how grateful we should be for family!

I can’t believe it, but the holiday shopping season is upon us: I’m seeing holiday deals in my inbox already and it’s not even November! A lot of you might agree that holiday gift giving has lost some of what made it special in the past, and the expectation of material goods has gotten out of hand. Just google Walmart + Black Friday + injury for some of the worst.

But despite negative news, there is something really special about getting together and giving loved ones gifts that have meaning. So before you get anything to just check someone off your to-do list, take a moment to model thoughtful giving for your children, family and community. Give them a gift that will last.

image

 

 

 

 

 

Experiences create the memories that bond us.

Consider taking loved ones on a local adventure, a music show, committing to an exercise routine with the kids , learning a family recipe , or even just setting up time for a special day with just the two of you. This can be inexpensive for your pocketbook, and rich in meaning.

Education is also a gift that lasts a lifetime.

For youngsters in your life, how about a set of blocks for your little engineer, science experiments they can do with friends and have a sleep over.  How about teaching a love for music?  Try gifting a product that will start by building on the classics.  

Whatever their passion as a young learner, stoke those coals!!

Your gift to them could not only last a lifetime, but positively influence their community!

Magic School Bus Costume & MORE Fun

Magic School Bus Costume & more

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This post contains affiliate links..

Do the kids love The Magic School Bus TV series??  Oh, my son does!!  So much so, we made a costume last year for “Favorite book Character Day” at his school.

With Halloween coming up (and this  Amazing, Hands-on, Year long,  Science Journey Deal!) I thought it would be a great time to share how we made my sons Magic School Bus costume.

For All the kids that love The Magic School Bus….and parents, too!

What you need…

  • Several pieces of white card stock
  • 2 Bounty card board boxes
  • 1 Milk cardboard box
  • 4 pizza box rounds
  • 2 blue pieces of construction paper
  • 1 red piece of construction paper
  • 2 yellow rectangular craft foam pieces with sticky back
  • Lots of yellow acrylic paint from Micheals- we used 2 16 oz bottles
  • A black marker
  • Black paint

 

ALMOST ALL OF THE SUPPLIES can be found  at home and at your local BI LO, Winn Dixie, or Harveys Grocery.   Just ask them for Bounty paper towel roll boxes and a milk box that would hold 4 gallons of milk.

To get started, I trimmed 1 Bounty box about 3/4 from the top.  Then, WE painted all 3 boxes yellow and let them dry over night.  Save the trimmed portion!!

Magic School Bus Costume & More Fun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You don’t need to paint 1 side of the milk box (the side with the handle) because this side will be glued to the front of a Bounty box.

Magic School Bus Costume & More

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We painted a tire on 4 pizza rounds.

Magic School Bus Costume & More

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I turned the two Bounty boxes on their sides and glued them together (tucked one inside the other a tad bit.) Let them dry.  And cut a rectangular hole in the top and bottom where PJ would stand inside.

Magic School Bus & More

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I glued the smaller box to one end of the Magic School Bus body and PJ held it in place to dry.

We hand drew and cut out all the features like the mouth which was two white pieces of card stock and this one pattern drawn on both pieces.

image image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eyes: larger circles on white card stock with the smaller circles on blue card stock

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the main design for the Magic School bus was together we glued on the cardboard pizza round wheels.  Two wheels went on both sides of the larger boxes and two on both sides of the smaller front box of the bus.

I used the remaining yellow painted larger box ( the saved portion that was trimmed from the top of one Bounty box) to cut and glue fenders half way around the front wheels.

PJ had a lot of fun gluing the rest of the features on the bus:  a blue school bus sign, a white poster board side door and front wind shield with yellow strip down the center, the mouth, and eyes.

Magic School Bus Costume & More

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used two white pieces of cardstock taped together and a ruler with black maker to make the grill. It was not a fancy design!  PJ helped me glue it to the front smaller box.

Magic School Bus Costume &More

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We added windows and shaded them with black marker to the other side. Again, just white card stock glued to the bus.

PJ cut out and glued the stop sign to the same side.  He also painted the black bumper on the rear and attached sticky back yellow foam above the top front red lights.

Batman riding the Magic School Bus!!

You and your kids can get creative with the features.  You also may want to hot glue two straps to the inside of the costume so they don’t need to carry it around.  Maybe criss cross the straps over you childs shoulders.  In hind sight, I was wishing I had thought to do that!

image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for MORE Fun!!!

Take a ride on the Magic School Bus!

The Magic School Bus Science Club is a 12- month science kit subscription based on the award-winning series, The Magic School Bus. If you haven’t heard about the series before, each of the stories center on the antics of a frizzy-red haired fictional elementary school teacher named Mrs. frizzle.  She and her class  board a “magic school bus” to take them on field trips to impossible locations….. the solar system, clouds, the past, and inside the human body. This story-based learning took the science scene by storm in the 90’s.

image

 

But it’s the 2000s!!

 

 

The kit subscription takes it to the next level with Hands On learning that ties to all on the stories!  also HALF OFF for a limited time!!!!!

The kits include experiments related to Volcanoes, Weather, Water, Fossils, Bacteria and Fungi, Star and Planets, and the weather, which, given recent events I want to brush up on, too.

One experiment I’ve been really excited to try is the Volcano Kit! The kit comes with a small volcanic rock, a pumice stone, sheets of paper, black paint, paint brush, a magnifying glass all to build a volcano.

And there are so MANY MORE Experiments!! Think of a sibling science club coming to life in your home – or friends bonding over making volcanoes explode, and learning all about how the human body works! Getting kids excited about STEM learning is exciting stuff. And it’s especially exciting because it’s 50% OFF for a LIMITED time!

Here’s the run down:

 

The Magic School Bus

 

 

The 12 Themes for activities and experiments that are sent to your doorstep, monthly include:

  • Detailed, extensive 12-page colorful manual that is full of experiments and topic information
  • Each manual was based on the award winning Magic School Bus Book (and TV) series
