Yesterday, February 27th was Polar Bear Day!  Check out this polar bear craft from http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mcircle_polar_bear.htm.  In one we crinkled the paper to give him a more 3D appearance.

Paper Money

Standard

Apologies for the lack of new posts.  A slew of sick and/or snow days have put a halt to my child care crafting. 

In honor of our Presidents and paper currency being introduced to the United States on February 25, 1862 by Abraham Lincoln we made some paper money to play with today!

To make this craft cut light green construction paper into rectangles of the same size (we made 6 a person).  Allow the child to color with a dark green crayon.  If they are unable to write numbers for money increments you can do that for them and let them add their own pictures or scribbles to the money!
