Preschool Rainbow Activities

I'm sharing some really fun, simple and educating preschool rainbow activities just in time for St. Patrick's Day this weekend (though I think a rainbow theme can work LOTS of times throughout the year).  The great thing about teaching kids is that often you can put together activities in 5 minutes or less and you can use items that you have around your house.

 

Rainbow Scratch Paper Tutorial

Have you ever looked at those rainbow scratch papers and wondered how to make them?  If so, you are in the right place today.  I'm sharing this easy peasy rainbow scratch paper tutorial so that you too can make your very own scratch paper any old time that you want.

 

It's a great craft to do with your kids and its easy to cut your paper into different shapes for birthday parties or holidays. A fun and unique craft to add to any activity. 

 

Spring printable

Even though it's not officially spring in my neck of the woods, I can feel that it is coming.  The anticipation has inspired me to make a fun, light hearted spring printable that I wanted to share with you.

 

I love to change up my decor from holiday to holiday and season to season.  As a busy mom I don't like to spend a lot of time or money to do that.

 

Owl Party Birthday for my 7 year old

My daughter decided to have an owl party this year for her birthday.  I went all over town to try and find some cute owl decorations to no avail.  Owl's are simply not a popular party theme this year.  So, I got creative and decided to make my own.

 

I always like to have a theme and a color scheme before I get too far into the planning process.  She picked to have green, purple pink and blue as her colors.  From there I chose party supplies in those colors and then did what I could to make them look like owls. 

 

St. Patrick's Day Preschool Activities

I love holidays and I especially love celebrating them with my kids!  I also love to combine holiday fun with learning.  That is why I am sharing some fun St. Patrick's Day preschool activities and free printables today.

This year I have two preschoolers at home with me and they are 4 and 2.  I like to try and find activities that each of them can enjoy.  With that in mind I have created fun activities that can work for both of them.

Non Alcoholic St. Patrick's Drinks

I love to celebrate everything from the little occasions to the big occasions. I don't like to spend a lot of time or money doing it though.  As a busy mom the last thing I need is to add more to my "to do" list.  So, I like to find easy and inexpensive ways that we can celebrate.  These non alcoholic St. Patrick's drinks add the perfect touch to a family friendly gathering to celebrate all things green.

 

March Madness Activity

Do you have any basketball fans in your house? My husband loves the month of March and looks forward to it all winter long.  I never grew up watching sports so I learned a lot about the significance of March Madness from him.  Early on in our marriage he came up with a great way to involve our family in his love of this annual basketball tournament and today I'm sharing our March Madness idea with you.

St. Patrick's Day Decorating Tips

Today I am sharing some St. Patrick's Day decorating tips, but really they can apply when you are decorating for lots of things.  I like to decorate for all the holidays in some way or another. My kids love to decorate and create a festive atmosphere and I love to change things.  Even though I like celebrating holidays, I don't always like to spend a lot of time or money decorating for every holiday.
