Letter a Airplane

All my letters are made out of foam craft paper, you could also use cardstock or construction paper.I take my letter template and place on top of foam paper and use a craft knife to cut out letter, I also use a cutting board underneath for protecting the table.

How to:

1. Download lowercase letters at Confessions of a Homeschooler and print.
2. Cut out your letter Aa and use as template on paper of choice.
3. Print out template of airplane. All you really need are the wings and the tail.
4. cut the wings and tail and use as template.
5. Glue onto letter Aa.
6. Cut out a window and add a pic from a magazine for the plot or use a pic of your child.

The Day It Rained Hearts

The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond is an adorable story. One day it rains hearts, and Cornelia Augusta catches them. Each heart is special in its own way, and Cornelia Augusta knows exactly who to send them to.

Starting Lowercase Letters and Alphabet Craft Share

This week I am starting my lowercase letters.I have had a great response to all my uppercase letters, some of which I created myself and the others I borrowed from Totally Tots. I am excited to be creating all of my lowercase letters on my own.
And for those of you interested in linking up I will also be starting an Alphabet Craft Share every Thursday. Both upper and lower case letters can be posted using the Linky Tool.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's creativity. Join me Thursday morning and link up your letter Aa .

Valentine Snowman

I think this one of my favorite crafts. It happened by accident, I was drawing hearts on folded paper for Mason to cut out and I happened to cut out 3 different sizes and when we opened the paper it reminded me of a snowman.
This one is mine
This one Mason did
Here is another one of M's
Basically its very simple to do.
1.Cut 3 hearts on folded paper(proportioned small,medium, and large).
2.Glue onto white paper.
3.Decorate with whatever you have on hand,such as buttons,tiny pom poms,ribbon,pipe cleaners,googly eyes,foam,etc.
