This seems like something that would be right up your alley. roller art - wrap them with stuff and roll on pieces of paper. : ) I bet I could get cheap rolling pins at the dollar tree and do it at school too. Don't want to ruin my good one. ;) @Meg clay, play based learning, idea, textur roll, pin art, rolling pins, paint, bubble wrap, roll pin
This is an adorable craft for our rainy springtime weather! I even think that a solid-colored umbrella would look adorable, as well as a little glitter on the rain drops. :) weather unit, umbrella, paper plate crafts, spring craft, rainy day activities, april showers, paper plates, rainy day crafts, kid

Homemade Playdough. I have made my own playdough and saw this wonderful blog post. I decided to forgo blogging about making play dough because she did such a good job and took step by step pictures. This stuff holds up really well. I actually store mine in the fridge. I personally loath Playdoh since the odor makes me nauseous. Great activity for your little ones. playdoh, homemad playdough, craft, dough recipes, food coloring, fun, play doh, easi homemad, kid

we made finger printed flower bookmarks for Mother’s Day. This is an idea that was included in Mother Goose Time curriculum several years ago. Brett made one for me & I just love it. This time I created my own template to make them. I’ve included the template below if you would like to try it. Just print, trim, finger paint & laminate. Punch a hole at the top and add a ribbon. flower bookmark, mother goose, templat, mothers day ideas, fingerprints, mother day gifts, flowers, mothers day crafts, kid

I love this colorful bulletin board display based on the famous line from "The Lorax" by Dr. Seuss: "I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues." classroom, school, lorax bulletin board, writing prompts, bulletin boards, trees, earth day, board design, board idea
