Letter Y Sensory Bin

And here is our Letter Y Sensory Bin! That's right we have almost made it through the whole alphabet in sensory bins, and for the most part Eli has really enjoyed them! It has definitely made him more interested in letters!

So for our Y bin I included, two balls of Yellow Yarn, a Yam, a Yogurt cup, a Yo-yo, a Yak picture, our Y book, foam Y's, and the Y magnet! I bet you can guess what his favorite was....the yo-yo! 

He definitely enjoyed the yarn (unrolling and re-rolling the balls) as well, and he spent some time looking through everything else, but he kept coming back to the yo-yo!

He never did get the hang of the yo-yo, but by the time he finished playing with the sensory bin he knew the letter Y!

Bow Tie Butterfly Spring Wreath

To welcome spring the kids made these adorable Bow Tie Butterfly Spring Wreaths!

To make the butterflies you need bow tie pasta, acrylic paint, and pipe cleaners. Paint the butterflies and allow them to dry.  If your kids are like mine they will love playing with any butterflies that they don't use, so make lots!

Once they are dry you add the antennae. One half of a pipe cleaned works well for each butterfly. Simply place the center of the pipe cleaner section on the bottom center of the butterfly and fold in half. Twist to form the head (and secure the body) and the twirl the antennae.

For the actual wreath part, we used light blue paper plates that I cut the centers out of. Next the kids each added the word spring with these fun, foam letter stickers that were kindly provided by CraftProjectIdeas.

All that is left is to glue the butterflies on where you like (we found hot glue worked well for this).

And there you have a super cute spring decoration the kids can help with!

Have small bottles to recycle too? Try making this awesome "Glass" Sculpture or Learning about Musical Scales!
