No, not the band… the kind you might see if you go on a Safari!
Today was all about Beetles and our children were so intrigued with the Beetle Design poster that came with our Invitation to Create.
Our preschool class was able to cut out and decorate their Beetles with glitter glue, sequins and gems.
For our Littles, their teacher drew a simple leaf on a piece of green paper, and they used Do-A-Dot markers to make their beetles. We counted them and will add legs when they are dry later, but it was a simple and fun activity, given that we didn’t have much class time due to the beautiful sunshine outside. 🙂
We essentially combined two activities from the Little Goose Lesson plan book. We love that Mother Goose Time is comprehensive , and flexible at the same time.
And just for some added cuteness, take a peak at the sweet Elephants our infant class made! I googled “Elephant Drawing”, and printed a simple one. Then I traced everything but the ears, and copied enough for each child. We made the footprints on another piece of paper and then put it all together. Sometimes art creations are just as much fun for the teachers as they are for the kids!
Thanks to Mother Goose Time for all the fun we have had “Going on Safari” in the month of January!
