Our quirky quail!
I feel like he’s the equivalent of “we’re almost at the end of summer reading.” He’s a bit drab and his feet, eyes, and crest are drawn on instead of cut out. I didn’t have it in me this week to get any more creative. And, you know, Q is a tough one. I based him on the quail found here.
Here’s our Letter Q Instructions and our table:
I had my last story time of the summer this morning! Now we just have to get through one more coding program and the party and we’re officially done!
Aaaand I’ve just realized I never added our O! Summer reading is turning my brain into mush.
Here’s our little fellow:
Isn’t he fun? I love the curly tentacles. I was trying to think of an easy way to make octopuses (octopi?) without too much tentacle cutting and it turned out we had these paper strips already cut and just looking for the right project. Bingo! I got the idea to curl the tentacles here.
Here are our Letter O Instructions. And out table:
Happy August everyone! Summer reading is almost over! WE CAN DO THIS!!!!
Our perfectly porky pig!
I think he’s one of my new favorites.
I based him on the idea I found here. Here’s our Letter P Instructions.
And our P table:
Our nifty, nimble ninja!
Largely based on this link I found on Pinterest.
Our Letter N Instructions. (I’m really fond of the little ninja clip art I found to accompany these instructions!)
And our letter N table:
The kids have liked the fact that the green N makes it look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. (This wasn’t an accident!)
Our marvelous mouse!
I got a lot of the inspiration from this Oriental Trading letter M craft kit! (Which, if your library can afford 100 letter kits every two weeks, I highly recommend! All this cutting is killing us! :D)
Our Letter M Instructions. And this week’s table:
We’re officially halfway through our alphabet project!!
Our lovely ladybug!
I saved us some cutting time by having the kids draw on their own ladybug spots!
Our Letter L Instructions and our table:
We took a story time break to plan all of our summer events and apparently I’ve taken a break from blogging! We’re getting back on track with our letter K craft. I didn’t take a picture of the table but I think you’ll get the idea. 🙂
How cute is he? I drew on a tree and some eucalyptus to make him feel at home.
Here are our Letter K Instructions.
Kute and kuddly …
