Space themed cut and paste

Y has been absolutely loving using scissors and glue sticks! He's been practicing with his scissors for the last half a year and has really improved his skills! His concentration and patience for using his scissors has really increased and he is constantly asking for more and more things to cut. 

Of course, I have to oblige! For a fun craft, I made this lovely space themed printable. This printable consists of two parts - a lovely space background and images to cut and paste onto the background. This is a great activity to let your kiddos make their own space scene!

DIY sandpaper numbers

A few months ago, I made some DIY sandpaper numbers for my son. So far, he has been enjoying using them in our works. Not only have they been on our shelves almost everyday since I finished them, but we use them to sing a silly number song regularly! 

Because I have been getting questions about how I made these, I am very excited to share with you exactly how I put these together as well as the printable I used for getting the d'nealian font!

This is the first time I am sharing such a 'DIY' tutorial so if there is something that is not clear or you need a few extra tips, please don't hesitate to ask!

Farm themed activities

Today, I am finally sharing a look at some of the fun we have been having on our shelves during the month of September! Y loved our farm themed printables so much that I kept them around a bit longer than I normally do! Here's a look at all of the hands on fun!
