A is for Astronaut Letter Craft

20110405-20110405-IMG_9006

This uppercase A astronaut was too much fun to make! We did it this week along with our Astronaut Preschool Pack.

What You’ll Need:

  • white, pink {or skin toned} and black foam sheet
  • tinfoil
  • scissors
  • glue/tape {I love glue dots!}
  • black marker

How to Make the ‘A’ for Astronaut:

  1. Cut an uppercase A from a piece of white foam sheet. We used a piece that was 4” x 5”.
  2. Using the excess white foam, I cut out arms/sleeves, a white helmet and a white ‘space pack’ for our astronaut.
  3. Using pink foam, cut out a face for your astronaut, just slightly smaller than your helmet.
  4. Cut space boots and gloves from the black craft foam.
  5. Cover the space pack with tinfoil.
  6. Glue the boots, arms and gloves onto the uppercase A.
  7. Glue the space pack onto the back of the A. We added some straps by rolling pieces of tinfoil and wrapping them around the A like backpack straps.
  8. Draw a face on your astronaut ~ don’t forget to add hair!
  9. Glue/tape your astronaut’s helmet and head onto the top of the letter A.

We started out the week with a sick Kaleb and did manage to squeeze in some school time {and were really getting on a roll}…and are now in the midst of household chaos with lots of painting, scrubbing and house purging going on.

Instead of paper and pencil school, we spent time on field trips so that Daddy could get some things done without interruption ~ the library and the children’s museum being top on the list!

Depending on how next week goes, I’m REALLY hoping that I’ll be able to share another preschool pack with you!! I’m trying to wrap up some behind the scenes stuff before I post all about it too. Right now, focusing on our kids and keeping our sanity intact is top on my ‘to do’ list {grins}…but I do have some fun stuff in store!

We did squeeze in a few days of school time this week before some of the kiddos ended up getting sick…which then resulted in Mom being super tired.

Kaleb is VERY excited that Saturday we’ll be going to see VeggieTales Live this weekend and truthfully, I’m really hoping that we get to hear my favorite song ~ Bellybutton! If your kiddos love VeggieTales, you might want to see if they will be in your area since the shows will be through November 30th. Assuming that the big guys don’t scare him to death, we should have plenty of pictures to share! :)

Before the sickies hit, we spent a lot of time reading about pirates!! Kaleb has been fascinated with them lately, so we read and read and read. We also did a fun letter craft that went along with our pirate unit. Can you guess which of the following letters it was?

Depending on how next week goes, I’m REALLY hoping that I’ll be able to share our unit with you!! I’m trying to wrap up some behind the scenes stuff before I post all about it. :)  I’ll also be sharing the rest of the do-a-dot printables soon too!

Hope you all had a GREAT week ~ and can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!

Preschool Corner ~ Lowercase Letter Crafts i – l

We’re still working through a quick alphabet review with Kaleb and will start doing some more detailed units soon {that I can’t wait to share with you!!}. We’re also doing ABC’s at co-op and I’m teaching, so our weeks lately have been very full and I’m doing more than usual in preparing for 14 kids in my class this year. Definitely makes my 4 kids seem much easier. :)

Kaleb’s big highlight of the week is that he is finally reciting his Awana Cubbies verses to his teacher. He’ll say them for me at home and then refuses to say anything when he gets to church. He also drew a stunning likeness of me ~ you’ll have to check it out and see if you agree {grins}.

Just to give myself a little breather I’m sharing some more of the lowercase alphabet letter crafts that Cindy and I have been sharing over at Totally Tots. Click on the picture to visit the post about that craft. :)
