Here is how I decided my "theme" for this round of Blogging Through the Alphabet. As I was going through old blog posts recently, I noticed I have some neat ideas for activities and crafts that I did with in the past. Unfortunately, I always included them in my weekly wrap up posts or more recently in Poppins Book Nook posts, so they sort of got buried. I can't really share them as individual activities or create pinnable images to promote them and share my ideas, which is why I started this blog in the first place (to share my ideas with others who work with children). So, I am going to make new posts for these ideas.
I have found there is a huge benefit in this strategy. I am remembering ideas that I had forgotten, which means I can now do these activities with the younger children. I will be sharing the old pictures and possibly sharing new pictures of the younger children participating.
Several years ago, during our letter G week, the girls got to make Grass Head Families.
G is for. . . Grass Head Family
I cleaned out egg shells and the children got to turn them into a little family. They drew faces on the shells.
Then we added potting soil and grass seed.
About a week later, the Grass Heads had quite a decent amount of hair.
