My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Cleo the Crab!
This idea comes from the June/July 2007 Kindergarten/1st grade issue of The Mailbox Magazine
Project/Learning Activity: Cleo the Crab. Cut a crab out of red construction paper - start with a semi-circle then two sets of legs, and two claws. Glue the crab to the top of a piece of paper. Brainstorm ideas the the crab can hold with his claws. Connor chose a flashlight and Ty chose a fork. Make the item out of construction paper and glue it in the crab's claw. Develop a sentence from the item and write the sentence below the crab. Materials Needed: red construction paper, scissors, glue stick, white paper, pencil, construction paper
