If you have lots of scrap paper around, this fuzzy monster craft from Sunny Day Family would be great to recycle a bunch of it. It would also be great for fine motor skills!

Make a Lorax Planter

These Eggshell Lorax Planters from Rubberboots and Elf Shoes would be a great way to let the kids help you get a jump on your gardening!  And reading the Lorax together would also be a reminder to kids on ways we can help take care of the world we live in. I’m thinking these Lorax will look cute with hair!

Construction Art Project

If you have construction tools, screws, and hammers around the house, check out these fun painting ideas from Study at Home Mama. Our boys would have been in tool heaven!

Letter Learning Game and Painting with Jelly Beans – Preschool and Kindergarten Community

Preschool and Kindergarten Community weekly linkup

With Easter just a few days away, there are some fun ideas for projects to work on after Easter and with a few of your candy and egg leftovers. There were some other great ideas linked up last week as well to the Preschool and Kindergarten Community, but here are a few to highlight!

Have a great week!

Alphabet Battle and Letter Learning Game

Alphabet-Battle-Letter-Learning-Game-2

Our boys have been playing Battleship all the time and this game reminds me so much of it – but with a great learning twist. Visit Mom Inspired Life to find out more about her Alphabet Battle and Letter Learning Game.

Making Paint with Jelly Beans

Let’s face it. Unless your kids are on a massive sugar high after this weekend, there may be a few jelly beans left floating around the house. Here is a great idea from Mini Monets and Mommies on how to make watercolor paint from jellybeans.

Making Paper Salad

Pretend play is so important for children! While it’s fun to have them cook along side us too, this Paper Salad turned out to be a great project for Mosswood Connections and her little one while she was prepping dinner. Love it!

Homemade Dinosaur Eggs

Along with Easter candy, I’m willing to guess that your home will have lots of empty plastic eggs floating around in the upcoming weeks. Take a few minutes to put together these homemade dinosaur eggs and have some fun with your kids too! She has a great step-by-step tutorial to follow.
