Valentine's Photo Booth

The kids and I had such a fun time doing this project together!  

 Valentine Photo Booth

  • Streamers
  • Hearts
  • Streamer Hearts
  • Rose Petals
  • Empty wall space
  • Balloons
  • Chair
  • Nice outfits
  • Cooperative Children
Doll Dragon helped me set up the photo booth the day before our planned shoot.  I informed both of the dragons about the shoot, what it was, what we would be doing, and my expectations from them a few days prior.  I told them we were going to have fun and be goofy together and take pictures of us while playing around.  I think this helped their overall attitudes of the shoot the day off.

I covered a decent part of the wall with the streamers to make sure we had plenty of space.
I used the flower petals and some glitter hearts on the floor to make it a bit more festive.  I also didn't want it to look like we took the pictures at home.  I could have put a red blanket down but I thought it would be too much red and it would have driven me nuts if I had a wrinkled blanket from kids walking on it in my photos.

I used the chair to give the booth a bit more background and levels.  I didn't want the photos to be bland.  It also worked as a great prop.

Doll Dragon had to test out the photo booth once it was done

Then it was time.  The photo booth shoot was here! The dragons got dressed up nice we turned on some fun music and snapped away! 

We did some goofy

Some fun

And some tender moments

Of course we also did solos!

The Dragons had great attitudes and asked to do it again when we were done.  Both of them have enjoyed looking through the finished photos too.  

This booth gave us memories that will last many years!

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.
