Ice Trapped Supers

Aside from the super hero training this was one of my favorite activities to watch the kids do.  I knew this was going to be a fun activity and once the heroes were frozen I had a hard time waiting to do the activity.

We had to wait a couple days because of rain but finally the weather was perfect for some outside fun.

Now that my supers were trained it was their turn to save their favorite super hero friends. 

Set up: 
  • put the heroes in a container and fill it with water then place it in the freezer. 
  • fill squirt guns with hot/warm water
  • pull to frozen hero ice block out of the freezer 
  • squirt the ice with the hot water or 'laser beams' as we called it to free the heroes
We did this activity around the same time as Jerry's break so he was able to join in the super hero saving! 

They tried standing up first then got down closer to the ice block for faster melting.

Once the ice was looking thin Jerry picked up the block and threw it on the ground and shattered the ice
Doll Dragon thought this was awesome!  She enjoys seeing change, especially change she causes so she picked up some of the supers who still had a big of ice on them and tried shattering it by throwing them on the ground.

Little Dragon just kept squirting.  He is a huge fan of guns so he was perfectly content holding on the the gun.

 Once the ice was shattered each person focused on one hero to free. 

When the supers were all free there was some playing with the squirt guns

and some straight up shooting the super heroes.

I guess you could call this an example of power
"I will hold you here while I shoot you!"

Paint Squirt Gun Fight

I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to do this activity ever since I saw a post about painting with squirt guns.

Paint squirt gun fight!  And it was AMAZING! 
I first bought an 8 pack of large boys white t-shirts.  I wanted the shirts to fit all of the kids and I wanted them to be able to save the shirts for the future. The 8 pack was perfect.
I filled the water guns up with paint and a pinch of water.  Each gun had a different color so we could determine a 'winner'. 
I squirted each 'player' with their color first.  So they knew their color and to demonstrate where to aim. 

Talking about the aim was very important.  All of the kids involved were 4 and above.  Aim had to be in the tummy or the back.  No faces, bottoms, heads/hair, or legs. We didn't want paint in eyes, noses, or mouths. The other places would be more difficult to clean and giving two aiming places was simple.����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������…

Teeth Craft

This craft went with our meat eater unit you can see here

I was having a difficult time thinking of activities for meat eaters.  I didn't want the sole focus to be on dinosaurs because carnivores and herbivores is a way to categorize many animals today. But everything I was running into was dinosaur related. 
Finally I found this craft! 

paper template of a carnivore and herbivore (I drew a hippo and t-rex head outline) page of teethscissorsgluemarkers

Little Dragon cut out the heads and then the mouth pieces. 
Then he cut out the teeth and glued them inside the mouth
To finish it he drew eyes on the head and a tongue on the inside of the mouth. 

Little Dragon was very excited to see the finished animals and open their mouths to look at their teeth.

We wrote what the animal was on the inside

This was a fun easy craft that helps identify the difference in the teeth between carnivore and herbivore.  It is a visual reference that can be used again and again.  It can also be used for…

Elephant Faces

Elephant Faces (masks)
We used: 

Three paper platesPaint or markersPaint brushesStaplerScissorsYarnFirst paint the bottom of the paper plate.  While the kids painted I cut the other paper plate in half for the ears. Using the third plate I cut out the textured part of the plate to make the trunks.  
Paint (or color) the rest of the pieces. 
Staple them together to make an elephant.
Cut out small holes for eyes and small holes behind the ears to attach the yarn.

Now that the lesson is over I have the masks hanging in the playroom.  They make a neat decoration.
