My Poor Play Room.....

2 weeks ago, I discovered in my smaller play room wet carpet. Come to find out a pipe had a leak.... My wonderful husband pulled the carpet out the next day, popped a couple holes in the wall, fixed the pipe, got the holes sheet-rocked, carpet replaced, and my play room is back in order.... Some what. :)

I dediced to keep the play room empty except for my easel, post office items and table. We are loving having all the extra space to do circle time, music and in the future, a 37 inch tv and WII will be going in there. I have both the items. Just need to wait to get someone to install them. I love the new play room, and so do the kids. :)

Grocery store and clock center was moved to my office... Wasn't hard to give up all that space because it sure is nice having more room to move around with the kids. :)

Octopus Friends

We made an octopus and hung it from the ceiling. Again, my cricut expression came in handy.... I use the Create a Critter cartridge....

Last week and this week is Under the sea. One thing we did was put stickers on a fish cut out. (Using my cricut expression)..... Great for small motor skills. The kids LOVED their little fishes...

I painted a dinosaur on the window in the play room. The kids LOVE it..... Reminds me of stain glass the way it turned out. :)

Baby Dino's

Dinosaur Week

The next couple of weeks is Dinosaur Week. The children are making a Dinosaur picture with dinosaurs that I cut out with my Ellison die cut machine. They love dinosaurs and enjoyed doing this little activity.

April Showers Bring May Flowers. :)

I figured I should try my Cricut that I have had for about 6 months and did up a bulletin board. I lucked out and had a flower template on one of the cartridges and leaves. I cut out 9 flowers, (7 inches) and leaves. Then printed up each of the kids pictures. Some of the flowers I rolled the ends to make it more 3D. :)
I'm going to have fun with this Cricut. :)
