April Pinterest - Pick 3

It's APRIL! That means only one thing. . . we have survived WINTER!



Many of you are on spring break this week and maybe you have some extra time to browse through Pinterest to find some things to do this month. Easter was last month, so the things that I found really center more around EARTH DAY or just colorful fun things. Hopefully the white snowy stuff is gone until next winter. Let's push forward to bright sunshine and colors!


I'm joining with my friends from Pawsitively TeachingJust Reed, and Inspired Owl's Corner to share my top 3 April Picks. I hope you find something fun for yourself. Be sure to go to their blogs and see many other fun picks from other teachers.


I'm a sucker for handprint artwork. This is so cool and makes me smile! Imagine shrinking these and making them into note cards. Wouldn't that be neat!

Kids love to pick flowers and weeds to give as gifts for teachers. Why not take those gifts and make them into art? Here's a simple way to do that.

I am a pack rat! I save cardboard egg cartons. I have a nice collection of them. NOW this is something I can do with them and what a great idea to teach children about nurturing. With this project they can  learn how to take care of something that is their very own to treasure.

I hope you found some fun things to do and if not, please go visit some of the many blogs listed below. You will love what you see. And could you please do one more thing? Please leave some nice comments at each blog you stop and look at. We love sharing with you, but it sure feeds our hearts to hear your kind words too.
Happy Spring!

  9. Love the name pictures! We just did this in my class and the kids had so much fun searching for all the nature items to use! We ended up just making "Nature Collages" because making names was a little hard for my Kinders!
    Thanks for sharing!
