Happy Monday Everyone!
It's hard to believe we've reached the end of April already! We are entering week 7 of social distancing here, and like many of you, I am constantly looking for ways to make this time a little easier for us all. Below you'll find simple and easy projects to entertain your little ones, along with some great printable freebies.
My youngest daughter and I have been doing a lot of colouring, and painting to help pass the time while she is in hospital. Art can offer such peace in times of stress. Thank you for keeping her in your prayers. I'll continue to share updates.
This week I have 4 amazing FREE resources to share with you:
- Phonetic Words List by AMI. Last week I shared the HUGE repository of 3-part cards being shared completely free to schools, educators and families to provide support during the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, I am happy to share this list of 192 phonetic words cards with you. Instant download with no sign up required.
- Origami Box Video by Handimade. Looking for a simple way to organize your smaller materials? Want to add a seasonal flare to your shelves? If you've got scrapbook paper, construction paper or cardstock, and a few spare minutes, you (and your kids) can make your own origami boxes just like my friend Kristy from @loveschoolathome. This short video will show you how to transform a square sheet of paper into a box perfect for organizing cards or objects for your homeschool.
- Swipe Art by Happy Mess Project. This process art project, suitable for even the littlest sparks, could not be simpler, and the results are simply gorgeous! I'd love to see your paintings, so please tag me if you try this one out.
- Water Xylophone Science Experiment by Little Bins for Little Hands. What kid doesn't love to make noise?! This simple experiment is an invitation to do just that, and learn a little sound science along the way. You don't need any fancy supplies, just a few glasses or jars of the same size, water and (optional) food colouring.
