Down on the Farm

So this past week, we  headed to the farm! Not literally! But it seemed like it!  Our work computer went out on us, so some of our crafts, I just hand wrote what I wanted or needed to say! :) Only took a few extra minutes!! :)

We also made some Army Guys for Veteran's Day!

You know, every month of so, we forget to take a picture of one of our crafts! Well, I reckon it was about that time once again! For Monday, we made a Rooster! Granted it was just a picture that was bingo dabbed and cut out and pasted to a piece of construction paper, but, it was the first craft of the week!
We also started on Army Guys. In our class, we have kiddos that do not come everyday. They can pick and choose their days, we wanted to catch everyone for the Army Guy Craft, and we wanted to make sure they went home on Veteran's Day or before. I'm thinking with the hype of the Army Guy, we overlooked our poor little rooster!!  The initial pattern was seen on Pinterest. The song came from online as well.

For Tuesday, we finished up the Army Guys and we made Piggy Toes!!

Wednesday, we began totally concentrating on Farm Crafts and made a handprint sheep. Some things I like about teaching where I teach, are hugs, smiles, kisses, and we are allowed to teach the children about God and what the Bible says. We explained to each kiddo that God watches over us like a shepherd would sheep.

Thursday, we had the kiddos to color a farmer, a woman for the girls and a man for the boys. They were also able to choose what kind of animals they wanted on their farm. They bingo dabbed or painted their animal after choosing. We certainly had some VERY colorful farmers! Of course, we had some traditional farms animals ...

and some NOT so traditional farm animals!! :) Usually there are cats on a farm, but, ELEPHANTS???  :)

Friday, we finished the week with PURPLE COWS! Not only did we paint and color a purple cow, but, we also made one to eat. This consisted of Vanilla Ice Cream, Store brand Grape Soda, and plastic punch cups and a spoon! The kiddos LOVED it, except one, and he wouldn't even taste it!

It's hard to believe the Holidays are upon us! It sure seems they got here pretty fast! Next week, we start on our Thanksgiving Crafts!! (Actually, since it's almost Wednesday, we have already started on them!)

Have a fully Blessed week!
Sherry :)
