Mother's Day Necklaces

Here's a quick, easy, (and inexpensive!) project we did in kindergarten that we added to the purses like we made last year (see previous post)- necklaces made out of metal washers!!!  The kids used old nail polish (and who doesn't have a ton of that laying around!) to paint a pretty design.  I thought that they'd just paint it all one color, or rush through it, but they really took their time! I picked up 72 washers at Menards for about $2 (I'm sure they are available elsewhere for a similar price), along with some thin ribbon, and wa-la!  A necklace for mom!

Earth Day - EVERYDAY

Here's a cute little project that my class did for Earth Day.  Like every other class we learned about how to take care of the earth, recycling, etc.  Then we made these hand-print Earths, and wrote what we could do to take care of the earth.  I had the kids paint the "land" on the edges BEFORE I painted their hands - this way the paint brush doesn't get all icky! The poem/song that goes with it goes to the tune: This old Man.  If you need about a the pattern you can pick it up for FREE here.
