He couldn't believe he was allowed to
play with noodles which is a favorite
food for him.
Reinforcing the Letter A by flying Airplanes - never could
get a good picture.
Cutting tissue paper which led to tearing the paper
Our own Elmer!!
Elmer's Colors is a great book to reinforce or teach colors. I was wanting a project to wrap up this unit but couldn't think of anything off the top of my head. While Blog hopping I came across a Blog called the Intello Kids. What would you know, she posted a art project for Elmer's Colors!! Click HERE for their version of the project and directions.
I will say with our Elmer it didn't go as smooth as what I thought it would. I have to remind myself that Gabriel is only 2, just turned two, so some things may be over his head or too long for his attention span. He didn't want to cut all the squares needed. It ended up being okay because he still used scissors but also had fun learning how to tear different sizes. Then he loved painting the glue on but being 2 would glob it on in some areas. Then wonder why his paper would not stick LOL. I am very glad we did this project. It can be used for any age range just remember to breath and have fun if you are creating an Elmer with a younger child.
