I first saw this cute Walrus on Pintrest at easypreschoolcraft.blogspot.com With my class I gave them choices on the type of "whiskers", color of paper and as always they added the face, and in some cases gave them hair!
2 sheets of brown paper
1 sheet of white paper ( I used card stock)
string (I like to give them choices)
cut your second medium circle in half
glue one medium circle to the large circle to make the body
This past Saturday we traveled to Falls View Trail located just outside the town of Quilcene, Washington. The sign from the road was easy to spot, however, once inside the parking was small. We we arrived there was no parking so we drove down the road to Mt. Walker and drove the road to the top. When we came back there was parking. There are (2) bathrooms they are Vault Toilets. Runs on solar, no sink or water. Bring hand sanitizer or baby wipes it was empty when I visited. Located just across from the trailhead.
The walk down was full of beauty! Next time we will camp in the Falls View Campground that way you can spend a full day exploring the river and another day to walk the Mt.Walker trail that is just up the road. The Falls view trail is a good for children, my mind was thinking of all the things you could do with little ones.
Our whole family loved this trail!There is a short trail to view the falls and then you can take the longer walk down to the river.
This past June we did this trail again with visiting family. The parking was great we went during the week. This time we did the entire loop, it was beautiful but may be to long for small children. When you first come down to the river there is a beautiful water hole.
Cross over the small wood bridge to start the longer loop. As you get to the point where the trail loops back there is a way to get down to the river for another larger water hole, this is a great spot to rest,reflect, eat lunch. We spent a long time here.
The loop back starts a bit uphill, for small children you can go back the way you came for less climbing. We had a beautiful visit with family everyone had fun.
Mt. Walker, Driving
A few months ago we walked the Mt. Walker trail. To be honest this was a hard one for me! I think I had three melt downs of "I can't do this" and a slight mummy walk, my daughter waited patiently for me and after 2 hours for a two mile hike I came out to the top and it was worth it!Great for older kids take the road up to the top for younger kids is my best advice!
I will post photos from our Mt. Walker hike up soon!
This is one of my favorite stories to read! As soon as you finish the first page the children recognize how the story follows the theme of "The Three Little Pigs" and read along with you! To go along with this book we made a Shark. To begin you need
2 Sheets of grey paper
1 small white paper plate
a Black button
The children decided they would like to color theirs
As our school year comes to a close the children are excited to be moving on to the their next class. We started the the bulletin board with the Walrus as we were on letter W. Each day we added a "sea creature" as you can see by the end of the month our board was full, the kids and I love to walk past it and find their latest work. I have even spied a few parents pulling back on a flipper to see who made it. To follow I will go into detail of each project as well as fun activities, games and even dances we did to go with the Under the Sea Theme!
This is my first post, so please keep checking back as I will be adding new things all the time!
