"Let's Feed The Birds Mom!!!"

Today Bug decided that the birds were hungry and that we should make them a treat!!!

We used bread, peanut butter and bird seed! Then, we used twine to hang them!

So much fun and so easy!!! Tomorrow we are going to hang them on the tree outside so we can see them from our patio! 

(Sorry the 2nd picture is upside down...its the right way in the file!)

Apple for Grandpa

SO sorry for the quality of the pictures...I used my phone!

First let me explain the reason behind this:

Grandpa and Bug have this thing that whenever we see them he asks if she brought him an we thought why not bring him an apple :)

For this all you need is: glue, scissors, construction paper, templates (because I stink at free-handing it)

Cut the apple out and trace it on the your paper and cut it out

Cut out the leaf and stem patterns and trace those and then cut them out

Make an oval shaped hole slightly larger then the worm..then cut it out

Cut out the worm...I drew a smiley face on it! :)

Once everything is cut out is the time for your little one to help!!!

Place the worm through the whole...
Fold the worm over ... then put glue on the backside

Unfold the worm and stick it to the apple

Have your little one glue the stem on..

Then have your little one glue the leaf on..

Although Bug will probably head off to 4K next year I have decided to start a home school preschool with her! (I can't see sending her {and paying for it} when I am certified to teach it!!!) 

I know there are many home school curriculums that you can pay for but I am determined to do this for FREE [or at least close to free...] 

Not sure if anyone is interested or not but I thought I would share this awesome WEBSITE I found with printable worksheets for everything from alphabet to phonics and using scissors! 

Just click the 'website' above and go check it out!!!

I was doing more searching today and I found PRINTABLE ABC Coloring Pages!!!

No more naps?

I am 90% sure that naps are on their way out here at Crafting with Bug!!! Anytime nap is brought up it brings on a HUGE melt down....(but shes not tired : p ) 

Any ways, today I got smart (or so I think...we will see how it turns out!)...instead of stating that it was naptime, I simply said 'I think you should rest for a while before we have to leave'. 

Thankfully, Bug willingly laid down! Can't say it will last long but I tried!!! 

Does anyone have any tips or tricks to get your little one to lay down without WWIII starting?

We made 'fireworks' today!! Or at least tried.... :)

All you need is paint, 1 sheet of paper, and a fork

Squirt some paint on the paper for your little one

Have your little one grab the fork and drag it through the paint

Here are a few more pictures :)

Bug got bored using the fork and decided to use her hands :)

Our final project!

We are running short on time as we are getting ready for a vacation but if this happens to you you can either have your little one (if they are old enough) cut out the 'fireworks' shape and hang them in the house...

This is the type of shape I would use as a 'firework' :)

Put the paints away, fork in the sink, wash your little ones hands and let the paper dry.

Stomp the Bugs???.....Or Run

So now that summer is upon us the bugs are out....

From the time Bug was hardly able to walk her Grandpa was teacher her how to 'Stop the bugs'...Very valuable lesson as my sister used to scream bloody murder when she saw a bug and I am trying to avoid this....

Well, that first summer she was stomping all the bugs she saw and random things she thought were bugs! GOOD DEAL! But, that only lasted the one summer....

Last year she would yell 'MOM THERE'S A BUG!' and then run in the opposite direction...Funny but not what I was looking for :)

This year however it depends on the day! One day she is stomping all the bugs she sees and the next day she is screaming bloody murder. In-fact, the other day I swore she was seriously hurt...turns out there was a TINY little bug on the steps. 

Do you have any tips or tricks that helps your little ones with bugs?

Forgive Me??

I have to apologize for the lack of posts these days....I don't have the software on my computer to watermark my pictures...The software is on my husbands computer and to be quite honest I am not what you call 'tech-savvy'! 
I am grateful that my husband is willing to help but things cannot be posted until he has the time to watermark them for me! 

I thank you for your awesomeness in sticking with me during the slow time!!!

As always I am available by E-Mail if you have any questions or suggestions I would LOVE to hear them [You can also comment below]!!
