Easter Egg Carton

This Sunday we're doing the Easter lesson in Nursery because General Conference is going to be on Easter Sunday. Here's the Easter gift I'm giving my Nursery kids. I really like the idea of using an egg carton instead of an Easter basket. What's inside the egg?

Watch Them Grow

Just like I did last year, I had my Nursery kids plant seeds. We planted pumpkin because it grows quickly and grows BIG. And because I had the seeds lying around my house. Easy. The kids were really excited to see the grown plants. And boy, those kids were wilder than any garden today.

Sencil Alphabet Art Project

We had a stencil. We had a canvas. We had paint.

I wanted something that displayed the alphabet and numbers in our home. So I taped down this stencil I wasn't using for anything else and let him paint to his desire. I touched it up a bit before hanging it on the wall. Okay, my photography is bad, but looks pretty good, no?

A Beginning Reader

Did I ever mention that I have a pretty cool mother-in-law? Well I do. She's a teacher and not only has she taught countless children how to read, now she's helping teach my children. She's giving us some great materials and curriculum books, including set one of the Bob Books. That's what Ph is currently reading. She must've taught her son right, 'cause my husband has really spent a lot of time reading and counting with him. When we first started it was a little rough, so we went back to letter and beginning word flash cards for a little more practice sounding things out. And now its still a little rough, haha. But with hard work and some M&Ms for bribery, he is doing well and is finally excited about reading. In fact, he's almost annoying about it.
