Spring is here! Finally

Hello everyone !
Sorry for not blogging for the last two weeks ! Here in Saskatchewan spring has been late this year. The last two weeks the weather has been mostly nice and that means that Tricia takes her little buddies to the park. That is why I have not been posting any crafts or activities . We are just having fun being outside . Most mornings we go to the park close to my place and play on the play structure and go hunting for ladybugs and ants .
After we have our lunch we go back outside for more park time . I have finally have planted some of my flowers outside so hopefully we do not get frost . It does happen over here .

Well that is all for now peeps ! Have a great day !

Till next time

The very busy spider craft

Hi there!
I am about a month late with this craft , but better late than never . We did this craft when there was still snow outside so not very fitting. We read Eric Carle’s book The Very Busy Spider and the kids loved it so much they had to make their own spider. They were talking all about the book as they were making it . I loved listening to them re-tell the story . If you have not read the book to your kids then you should . Expect to read the book often because you have to read over and over . Here is what our busy spider looked like . Very busy spider Very busy spider[/caption
It is quite simple . I used mini paper plates from the dollar store and cut a smaller circle our bristle board and stapled the circle to the plate. We used orange and green and yellow tissue paper and glued it on for the body is the spider . We used green tissue paper for the head of the spider. We used these colours because we wanted our spider to look like the very busy spider in the book. It was a very fun craft to do and a very inexpensive craft to do . I purchased all the supplies at Dollarama . Here is some more pictures of the cute little spiders image
I have had a mother tell me her little one plays with his busy spider quite a bit . I thought that was cute .
Bye everyone !

Happy creating !
Tricia
