Over the course of about 15 minutes this morning, the kids and I created a craft page.  I bought a roll of brown packing paper a while back, thinking I could put in under the kids coloring pages and crafts to save my kitchen table.  Turns out it works just as well as the craft paper.

Colton and Parker seem to really enjoy tracing lately.  So I traced out the alphabet and some shapes and some words.  Then I added some puffy letter that are stickers and some different colors. 

The kids have been playing at the table most of the day, and learning along the way.






And for lunch, we dined on fresh popped popcorn and milk.

Good times.

  1. That is really cool! Isn’t it neat how they can have fun all afternoon with something like that? P.S. I like orange juice with my popcorn! lol

  2. How fun is that? When I was a preschool teacher, I would have LOVED that idea! I’ll be passing it on to both moms AND preschool teachers that are friends of mine. Thanks so much for sharing a great idea!

  3. Hi there!
    I love this idea! My only thought, from a Mommy that has “been there”, is that if you teach them to write in all capitals you then have to un-teach it later. Blessings

  4. This is a great idea! Very good, A of F! Did you pour the popcorn in a bowl and then put the milk over it? That’s how my mom loved it … and we had it a lot as kids!
