Birdies and Hearts

This week we enjoyed a couple activities before we got so sick we had a hard time functioning.

Monday we went on our first bird walk. They weren't prepared for a handful of preschoolers and kindergarten age children. That being said we had fun and Bear has a strong interest in bird watching. She has always loved seeing birds, but now she understand what she CAN see.


We discovered a worm on the wood stump.... 

We decided that there must be a nurse log burried there and providing food for the mushrooms...
notice how they are all in a row, lined up like little soldiers.

Then we went to a Valentines Day Party to exchange cards, play games, eat cookies and fruit and make a crafts with friends.  It was fun and all the children really did very well with their boxes.  There were so many unique and unusual boxes and designs.  Good job kiddos!

Directions for Paper Heart Chain:

Making a paper heart chain

  • Cut 1 1/2 inch strips of construction paper (about 8 inches long--the width of the paper standing up on end)
  • Do about 4 colors (we were given pink, red, and purple)
  • Fold the paper in half to creat the point.  (see below)
  • Next curve up to form the top shape of the heart (kids can do this part as well
  • Staple theend together (see above)
  • continue to link until you have the desired length of chain.
Making the bottom point on the heart

Stappling and adding hearts

Bear's is the center one.
