Stamping snowflakes and snowmen. I'm sure this will get messy!
The rag alphabet that I made. You can read about it Here
Open and Close Basket
The little snowman with the blue scarf has an added feature. On the back there is a little leaver that swings the bell. The children are so excited every month when I bring out a new open/close basket. some will sit for a long time exploring the different objects
I am so in love with the button snake idea. I have seen it on so many blogs now, (way too many to post) I knew I just had to try it. For this months theme I decided to use bears for our snake I got this idea from Here Her Bears are so much cuter than mine. I love that she added the little overalls for the bears to wear!
These bears are made out of craft foam sheets that I got at the dollar store. I just used my cookie cutter to stamp them by pressing down firmly them I cut them out. So much faster than trying to trace the bears onto felt. I am also hoping that by using the foam that the bears may survive more than one day with these rough toddlers. When I used felt for the button turkey and snowman the children would get frustrated and pull the felt so hard that it lost it's shape.
Squirting colored water from one bear to the other . Thanks mom for saving your honey bear containers for us:)
I just love these bottle cap letter matching cards. Each card is double sided with another child's picture and name to match. I got the idea from Counting Coconuts
I have seen this idea all over the Internet lately. It seems bottle caps are the new craze lol
I love This idea from baby piranha
This is just transferring the tiny stickers to the cards. Jada and her younger friends have a hard time doing this on their own so I thought we better practice.
I got this printable from Making Learning Fun. You print off the Brown bear literacy cards and follow the directions to make a matching flip book
Musings of Me also has some great printables on winter activities and bears! So colorful and inviting! I will have to make a few when I get a chance. These past few weeks have been crazy busy.
One more activity I was going to do was the bath cling water drop but I can't find them anywhere. It was perfect too because it looked just like a snowflake. Oh well maybe I will find it for next month??
