Learning About Rainforest Animals


Lorelai learned all about the animals of the rainforest today. We watched many videos on Youtube and the one above was definitely my favorite. I love how she went through each layer and gave examples. I made this cute printable this past Sunday when I was planning for the week. Each layer of the rainforest […]

{ Rainforest Dirt Pudding }

Lorelai making pudding

After we got back from gymnastics this afternoon, Lorelai asked for a snack. I decided to go ahead and make the rainforest dirt pudding I’d put on my list! The original recipe calls for Cool Whip topping, but that was an unnecessary step in my opinion. It turned the pudding part too light and took […]

Layers of the Rainforest Printable

Rainforest Printable

Open Layers of the Rainforest Printable This week, Lorelai is learning all about rainforests. She got really excited when I told her about all of the crafts and activities I have planned for the week ahead. It’s going to be busy, but lots of fun! Starting off Monday morning, I showed her this printable I […]

{ Pirate Week Recap }

Pirate Week Recap

Lorelai chose this week’s theme – pirates! We didn’t do too much because I had a full schedule early on in the week, but she enjoyed all of it! A few preschool printables, including a cutting practice sheet, tracing practice, and Make A Word (my favorite). We also did a couple of crafts ~ the […]

Practice Cutting & Tracing with Pirate Printables

Cutting & Pasting

I made these two printables so that Lore could get a refresher in cutting and tracing. She cuts a lot when she makes her own little “crafts”, but I thought it would be fun to make a sheet for her to cut out pictures of her pirate and parrot, and then paste into their own […]

Making Words & Blending Letters Printable

Make A Word Printable

I’ve been wanting to make a printable like this for a while now. Pirate week seemed to be the perfect time to do this since the theme isn’t one that consists of a lot of learning… so I figured I’d add mesh the two! Lorelai FLEW through this one since we’ve worked a ton on […]

Cloud & Rainbow Craft

Cotton Balls

This was another fun craft that I’d had planned for earlier in the week, but life got in the way. So, we did it this morning to finish off our weather week. We talked about rainbows before and how they are the product of lighting reflecting off of water droplets. My rainbow-loving girl didn’t really […]

Puffy Paint Cloud

Easy & Fun!

Every well-seasoned craft table needs a little bit off puffy paint! =) Lorelai had fun painting with this mixture. It’s fluffy, soft, and really easy to make. We did equal parts school glue & shaving cream. Actually, I’m not sure if it was actually “equal” parts because I just eyeballed it. It’s not an exact […]

{ Rain Cloud Experiment }

Simple and fun way to teach about rain

I saw this awesome experiment over at Teach Preschool the other day and knew immediately that this is what we needed to round off our weather week. We were really busy last week and weren’t able to get anything done Thursday or Friday. So this morning (we had nothing to do) Lorelai and I went […]

2-Letter Beginner Sight Words

Beginner Sight Words

I made some weather-themed, 2-letter beginner sight words printable. Lorelai knows most of these words but it’s nice to have them on hand as flashcards. As mentioned, these can be cut out and used a flashcards. I provided light lines on the printable to cut out in uniform squares, or you could just cut out […]

{ Homemade Cloud Dough }


Smooth, fluffy, soft, and FUN! That’s cloud dough. =) Lorelai loves making play dough and slime, and she loves her cloud dough now as well. The best part? It only takes two ingredients. 4 cups of flour 1/2 cup of baby oil MIX MIX MIX! That’s it. =) I added a few extra squirts of […]

Theme Recap: 5 Senses

5 Senses Week

I had planned this theme so that everything could be done in one week, but life got busy and it took us two complete weeks to get through it. Overall, Lorelai really enjoyed learning about her 5 senses, the experiments, and crafts. I also liked learning about the different animals that use their senses. Some […]

Printable Mouse Craft

Printable Mouse Craft

Mice have an exceptional sense of hearing. According to this site, mice can hear frequencies between 1,000 and 100,000 Hz. By comparison, humans can hear frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz. Big difference! So since our theme for the day is hearing, I made this mouse printable. Lorelai and I were both laughing when it […]

{ Freeze Dancing ~ Hearing Activity }

Freeze Dancing!

So yesterday (I’m just getting around to blogging this!), Lorelai also learned about hearing. One of the hearing activities we did was Freeze Dancing. She put one of her favorite compilation CDs and danced to the music. I paused it randomly and she had to freeze whichever move she was doing at the time. She […]

Jellyfish Craft

Printable Jellyfish Craft

As I mentioned in the Safari post (our activity for “sight”), Lorelai picked up another vicious cold this week. She was really glad to be able to do a fun activity and craft today. I chose a jellyfish today since we hadn’t done one yet. Plus, the jellyfish has TWENTY FOUR eyes. Crazy right?! Open […]

{ Safari Craft & Fun }

There were wooden animals all over her bookshelf.

I’m really am trying to get through this Five Senses preschool theme. We were busy beyond belief last week. This week Lorelai got sick again and she’s been out of commission the past couple of days. She’s still not feeling 100%, but she was getting stir crazy this afternoon so I decided to go ahead […]

{ Teaching Taste: Craft & Activity }


I know I had originally planned to do the Five Senses theme all in one week, but we just had so much going on last week that were only able to do 2. Since we have some stuff planned this week as well, I’m going to finish up the theme (hopefully) by Friday. So today […]

Bloodhound Dog Craft


I had good intentions with this printable. It did look like a bloodhound when I made it, but with the paint colors being off and not being able to really show the wrinkling, this bloodhound looks like a Labrador! That’s okay, Lorelai doesn’t know the difference. Today she learned all about the dog with the […]
