Adorable Sock Bunny

Oh. My. Good. Ness.  These are the cutest little bunnies I’ve ever seen!  Next week my preschool kiddos will be making one of these at our Easter party and I can’t wait to see our adorable collection of bunnies!

These are so easy, you won’t believe it!

First purchase Men’s tube socks {that way they have no heel} and insert a 2×4 cut to approx 5-8 inches depending on the height you want.  Honestly I won’t measure, I’ll just eyeball the cuts and they’ll be naturally varied.

Tie a cute ribbon at the top.  Loving the polka dots right now.

Cut ear shapes out of the socks.

Hot glue the bottom portion of the ears closed, leaving the top open to add a little stuffing.

Then hot glue the rest of the ears closed.

Use paint to add eyes, nose, pink ears, whiskers and cute rosy cheeks.  We will be using tacky glue to add some buttons too.

They look cute EVERYWHERE!  In front of the fireplace…

On the porch…

In a window.  You just can’t go wrong.

Mine will be joining my Easter mantel.

So, are you going to make some?  Your kids would LOVE it!!!

Happy Crafting!

Letter T – Teddy Bear Day

Today we get to bring our favorite teddies to school!  Don’t you just love cuddling with something soft and squishy?  To honor our teddy bears on teddy bear picnic day we’ll be reading several stories:  Teddy Bear Picnic,  Brown Bear, and Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.

Every preschool kiddo loves a great hat so today we’re making hats!  Get the PDF hat here.

Have fun and happy cuddling!

Letter T – Teddy Bear Sorting

Whew!  We’re cruising right along with the alphabet and amazingly made it to letter T already!  With our focus on teddy bears we’ll be doing some gummy bear sorting and graphing.  To practice our fine motor skills we’ll be using tweezers to do the sorting.

Do you love integrating language arts with Math as much as I do?  Here’s a PDF printable for the chant Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around.  Use this to teach the kids the poem/song or print off a copy for each child and allow them to color it and search for letter Tt in the chant.

Hope you enjoy some teddy bear fun!

Letter P Penguin

When learning about letter Pp what better way is there to learn then to make a giant P into a cute penguin?  It don’t think there is a cuter way.  🙂  So here is our giant P penguin.  The letter P is made from an entire sheet of 12×18 construction paper.  I simply used various colors of construction paper to make all of the rest of the parts and the kids get to glue him together.  To add a little flair we made them Rockhopper Penguins and added feathers to the top of his head.  Happy penguin making!

Jonah and the Big Fish

I just love watching the kids eyes light up when they hear the story of Jonah for the first time and they hear about the big fish swallowing Jonah…  just priceless.  To help us remember all of the fun we’ve had with the Jonah story we are making these adorable {at least I think so} paper stuffed whales.  Your kids will LOVE making these with you!
