Octopus Kids Craft

We are huge fans of ocean and sea life animals at our house. We love crafting them and learning about them! Our collaborative preschool theme this week is all about the ocean and I'm excited to share the Octopus Kid Craft my preschooler made with you. Not only is it simple to make, but it incorporates fine motor skills and using scissors so it's a perfect preschool activity.

Leprechaun Stick Puppet St. Patrick's Day Kids Craft

This post is sponsored by Elmer's Products, Inc. The craft tutorial and all opinions expressed are my own.

My daughter is currently obsessed with anything related to role play and pretend play. It has been so fun for me to watch her interact with her toys lately as if they are real life people and hear all the adorable voices she gives each character. With St. Patrick's Day coming up in two weeks, we decided to make a Leprechaun Stick Puppet Kids Craft. You can use the puppet to enjoy pretend play like my daughter, or to reenact your favorite St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun book.

My kids saw Disney's Big Hero 6 in theater with their Grandma and ever since they have raved about how much they love the movie and how smitten they are with the Baymax character. As soon as I learned about the DVD release date I ran to Target to get myself a copy of it because I've been so excited to plan a fun family movie night with the movie.
