This past week we talked about colors. Unfortunately, it was a super crazy week at work and home so I didn't get the opportunity to take many pictures. The owls are from last week.


We read Dog's Colorful Day and bingo stamped the story. I got this idea from A Special Kind of Class. She has a lot of great ideas of activities to do with this book.
 We also fingerpainted in plastic bags. The kids squished the paint around and mixed colors after reading Mouse Paint. It was a lot of fun for the kids and good sensory experience! :)
 
We also found color items in the Color Sensory Bottles I had made this past summer and yesterday we painted with marshmallows to make circles and lots of colors (another great fine motor activity). Next week we start Thanksgiving, which is right around the corner! Crazy how fast the time goes! Well, have a fun weekend!

This past October I made lots of fun stuff. It is my stress reliever and needless to say this past month and the upcoming month are going to be stressful ones! Between work, classes and just trying to be a mom (we are transitioning to whole milk which has been quite the challenge!) my time is spread thin.

Anyways, here are some of the fun things I have been up to. You can link up too at 4th Grade Frolics



Eye spy bags. I got this bag from the dentist and got the plastic pellets at Hobby Lobby. The shapes in there are made from foam.


In this bag I included pom-poms, buttons, and foam shapes.
 
I also made glitter clothespins. Thoughtfully Simple has some great directions of how to do this.


I also made some sensory bags. I used plastic bags, buttons, glitter, and hair gel. All from the dollar store! My kids love them!
 

 
Last, but not least something for the upcoming winter season. I used two wine bottles and sprayed them blue. Then, I used spray adhesive on and rolled them in Epsom Salt. I just got some branches with some fun glitter on them for a $1 from Hobby Lobby and this past weekend they were 50% off! Even better! :) Happy Monday!
