Duckling Eggs in Nest Craft

Standard

May is not only National Duckling Month but also National Egg Month.   What better way to start the month than with a craft that celebrates both!?

Duckling Eggs in Nest Craft

by: J. Davis

Materials

-light blue and white (more like off-white) construction paper

-brown yarn

-school glue

-scissors

Directions

1. Cut 2 eggs out of white construction paper and glue them onto the middle of the light blue paper.

2. Wrap brown yarn around your hand about 20 times.  Cut the yarn in the middle of your palm and then cut the strips of yarn in half.

3.  Create a nest shape out of glue surrounding your eggs.  Smear with finger (or a brush) to make a solid patch (nest) of glue. 

4.  Drop yarn pieces on glue.  Press down after you have the glue mostly covered to adhere yarn to the glue.

Earth Day!

Standard

It’s Earth Day and Good Friday so if you are blessed enough to have good weather, GO OUTSIDE!  Our weather stinks here today so we opted to talk about the ocean and watch some Finding Nemo.  This afternoon we have plans to make a construction paper collage/painting of a clownfish in an anemone!

The anemone and fish were cut out of paper and then we used our fingers to paint the stripes and bubbles!
