Laser Beam Activity

Recently I saw a post from another blogger with this cute activity and decided to let our kids try it as well.  They loved it!  All you need is painter’s tape, crepe paper and a hallway.

Lazer Beam Kids Activity

Using long strips of crepe paper, stretch them across the hallway at various angles and heights and attach the ends to the walls with painter’s tape.  Keep in mind the size of your kids, because they might be lower to the ground than you are!  In fact, the first time our kids went through the laser beam course, they pretty much just ran underneath it.

Parenting: If you children can survive an apocalypse and/or rob the Federal Reserve, you are doing it right!

Kids Craft- Spring Caterpillars

This is a cute and very easy preschool or toddler craft for spring.  I saw this at my son’s school and wanted to share it.  It requires paper egg cartons (our teacher solicited the parents to gather everyone’s used ones), some Tempera paint, a marker for the eyes (or pre-made googly eyes) and pipe cleaners.

Cut the egg cartons and have the children use the Tempera paint to color them.  Draw on the eyes and help them poke in the pipe cleaners.  Super easy.  They can help with the wall display too, if you choose to have one!
