My Book Of Seasons

Preschool Weather Book

  I love this Preschool Weather activity, My Book Of Seasons! We explore Autumn Wind, Winter Snow, Spring Rain and Summer Sun. When all the books were finished we took time to have each Author read their book at Circle Time. To start I pre printed our Season book pages using a simple print shop program, Summer Sun, Autumn Wind, Spring Rain and Winter Snow. Then using construction paper I assemble our book, as they finished a page I added it to their book.

Spring Rain

  To create our Spring Rain we used Cupcake Liners for Umbrellas and blue fingerprints for rain.   Weather Book of Seasons spring rain suppliesSupplies Needed:
  • white paper
  • blue stamp pad
  • color cup cake liners
  • glue
  • pipe cleaners cut in half
      Start by gluing onto the paper where you would like an umbrella, after placing your liner into the glue add a drop of glue to the center, add the pipe cleaner then fold the liner down into the glue. To create your rain drops simple your finger print in blue ink. In the past I have also used a child's toothbrush dipped in blue paint then they use their finger to splatter the rain drops great effect, a little messy!   Weather Book of Seasons spring rain fun Weather Book of Seasons spring rain 1 Weather Book of Seasons spring rain 2           I love the way each one designed their umbrellas! A great book to accompany this art Project is Wake up It's Spring by Lisa Campbell Ernst.     Preschool Book of Seasons spring rain 2 Preschool Book of Seasons spring rain 1005 (800x600)                  

Summer Sun

  This was a fun easy way to create a beautiful sun!   Weather Book of Seasons summer sun suppliesSupplies Needed:           To create your sun simply use your hand print start with orange. I had each child make four hand prints turn the paper after each press to form a circle. Then repeat the process with the yellow stamp pad!   Preschool Book of Seasons summer sun 1 Preschool Book of Seasons summer sun 2               To finish their book I had them sign their name to the cover! I love to see the pride as they read their books to their friends at Circle Time!   Preschool Book of Seasons cover  

Preschool Shamrock Corn Starch Dough

Preschool Shamrock

Corn Starch Dough

  To celebrate St. Patrick's Day and the Letter of the Week "T" we whipped up a batch of Shamrock Corn Starch Dough! Quick and easy with only three main ingredients!   Shamrock Corn Starch Dough supplies neededSupplies Needed:
  • Corn Starch
  • Dish Soap
  • Water
  • Glitter
To start I was making a big batch so I used the whole box of Corn Starch. I then added Green Dish Soap this helped to give the green color and it smelled great! For fun I added some glitter, you could also add shamrock confetti or even food coloring to give it more color. As is usually the case with me I made it right before class so I eyeballed it and kept adding water and soap till I got the consistency I was looking for.

Preschool Shamrock Slime

  Hours of fun with three ingredients!    Shamrock Slime supplies neededSupplies Needed  
  • glue
  • glitter / food Coloring
  • Liquid Starch
        Shamrock Corn Starch Dough supplies To create our Shamrock Slime I wanted to find Shamrock Confetti, to my surprise this was not to be found this year. Instead I found these cute Shamrock Necklaces at Joanne's for under $2, LOVE Jo Anne's!!  Next I cut them into individual pieces. To start I mixed the glue, glitter and green food coloring. Then I added the Shamrocks and slowly poured in the Starch. I always decide to make this right before class so I truly don't measure I eyeball it and it's always a little bit different but Fun! The children pulled out each Shamrock and then created their own designs! As always you never know how it will be played with and the best part for me is when they think of something you never thought of!
