Budget Works Kids Do for Too Long!
We all know that children love to drop things into small holes.
I have made endless varieties of small motor skill works based on this love.
Many are one of a kind because I find the objects at Goodwill and figure out how to use them after playing around with things I have on hand in my many school storage rooms.
They are always winners with the kids.
Incense jar with cocktail picks.
I sometimes have to limit kid's time with this because they will do this for way too long.
Olive picks in the holes of a food shaker.
Antique salt shaker with hair curler picks.
Swizzle sticks in a pencil holder.
Tiny beads dropped in vanilla jars.
Tiny plastic hats upside down into a small ice cube tray.
Hey, I had them both in storage and they called out to me for union.
And maybe the oddest:
Pom Poms down the volcano!
Don't know what the green tray is for or the black plastic tube.
They just wanted each other.
Kids Love It!!
I have more. Many, many more.
February is Dental Health Month. Here is a young dental hygienist practicing her cleaning skills.
I cut pictures from magazines to make an interesting booklet to go with the plaster cast.
I offer writing for every unit we study.
Then, an art project. I have a really good Pinterest folder full of teeth art projects.
Happy teeth, happy life!
