Well, this is the idea which Mummy come out after few weeks of reading, searching online on the home school concept things. This type of art work actually, Mummy did it during primary school time.

Materials:

  • Red, Green and Brown colour papers
  • Pencil
  • Glue

P8230121 To Make:

  1. Draw an apple on a sheet of plain paper, with the stem and leave.
  2. Tear the colour papers into pieces using hands.
  3. Glue the pieces onto the apple.

Annabelle was so happy on the art craft that we did. Mummy replaced the brown colour stem to brown colour pencil because Mummy just managed to bought red and green colour papers, but Belle seems did not care at all, and just glued the stem with red colour papers too.

Issac just coloured it with brown colour pencil. He wrote his name and the word ‘Apple’.

Alphabet Book : A

Posted: September 1, 2010 in Kids Homeschool

This alphabet Book idea also is a goodies that Mummy learned from the Homeschool Creation blog. It is filled with crafts that both kids make – each letter of the alphabet having it’s own craft with the words of each individual alphabet. I started this even is September of the year, even it is late but it is better start late than never. Thus, we started our first week with the letter ‘Aa’.

P8230122 Materials:

  • Red construction paper apple
  • White rectangle piece of construction paper
  • Black inkpad
  • Green construction paper leaves

P8230123 To Make:

1. Cut out the apple if they are able to use scissors {we cut them out ahead of time due to limited time}.
2. Let the kids scrip the apple in half, horizontally.
3. Rip the white piece of paper on both sides, so the apple ‘core’ appears to be eaten.
4. Have the kids stamp their fingerprint on the white ‘core’ of the apple to make seeds. In this art, we have replaced the fingerprints portion with a black ink pen, as we do not have the inkpad. The kids just do their own scribbles on the ‘core’.

Annabelle just griped the pen and scribbled on top of the construction paper freely.

When I asked them, “ Who ate the apple?"

Issac answered, “ Hmm…Mummy…the ants ate the apple…I draw ants here, ok?” I was so shocked that he was answering that way. What a co-incident, this week we are learning about the letter ‘Aa’ and the ‘ant’ is start with letter A. Sometimes, Mummy feels that, such little little moments and touch seconds are the treats or the rewards or the satisfactions that being a Mum are enjoying and the fulfilments that we desired…

a is for apple

Posted: August 31, 2010 in Kids Homeschool

This is another goodies which go along with the uppercase letter ‘A’ we have done previously, Both kids were so surprised and happy on the outcome of the little artwork. The apple looks so real!

P9050129What Materials Need:

  • red, white, green and brown foam sheets or construction paper
  • an apple
  • glue & tape
  • pencil
  • scissors

P9050130 How to Make the ‘a’ for apple:

  1. Cut out a lowercase ‘a’ from a piece of red foam sheet. This letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 2” x 4” ~ small, but oh so cute! I used red construction paper for that.
  2. Cut out a small oval/circle from the white foam that will fit behind the inside of the letter ‘a’ to use as the inside of the apple. Due to more economical, Mummy change it to white plain paper.
  3. From the brown foam sheet, cut out a stem and five small apple seeds. I cut it from a black colour construction paper for that.
  4. From the green foam sheet, cut out a leaf for your apple. Using a green colour paper.
  5. Glue or tape the white circle to the back of your lowercase ‘a’ so that it shows through the centre.
  6. Count out the seeds with your little one and glue them into the centre to form the star at the centre of the apple.
  7. Glue or tape the stem and apple to the back of the letter ‘a’.

A is for Alligator

Posted: August 30, 2010 in Kids Homeschool

This is the goodies that Mummy found in the website http://totallytots.blogspot.com which Mummy discovered from Mummy Ang Lee Siang’s blog.

P8230124The followings are the materials that supposed we need for the cute Alligator art work:

  • Green foam sheet or construction paper (Mummy using green colour construction paper / sugar paper)
  • White foam triangles or construction paper (Mummy using white plain paper)
  • Black sharpie or marker
  • Googly eye
  • Glue

P8230125 How to make the ‘A’ Alligator:

  1. Cut an uppercase ‘A’ out of the foam sheet or construction paper. I used a green colour construction paper that was about 4" x 5" in size. Also cut two triangles from the green construction paper to use for the eyes.
  2. Cut small triangles out of the white paper to use as teeth for the alligator. I used white plain paper for the teeth.
  3. Turn the ‘A’ onto its side and glue the green triangles to the ‘A’ so that they look like eyes popping up.
  4. Glue the white circle onto the the green triangles. I cut out 2 circle shape of white colour eye, and using the black marker to draw the eyes on it. This is the alternative as I can’t find any googly eyes from the nearest book shop.
  5. Add teeth for your alligator.

Both Issac and Annabelle like it very much…Hope they find that learning is fun and enjoying!
