Pick a Carrot

I found this cute idea on Pinterest from Mrs. Jones creation station and adapted it to fit the needs of my kiddos.

I found the carrots and Michaels during Easter time.  Filled them with letter beads and dried black beans.  I then super glued them shut.  Each carrot has 5 letters for the kids to look for.

As they find the letters they can either cross it off with dry erase markers or I created a sheet where they can color the carrot. 

Each carrot has a number in the top that matches the number on the paper, this way they know what they are looking for:)

I Spy Zoo Animals

To go along with out zoo theme, I created a Zoo I Spy bottle.  The kiddos used the I spy card to determine what animals to look for.   Once they found the animal they crossed it off with a whiteboard marker and look for another animal.  Grab your copy of the I spy card here.

I found most of the animals at Michaels in the kids section and the beads Polly Pellets which can be found at Michaels, JoAnn's and on Amazon.

Safari Jeep

I I love, love, love Pinterest , my brain is always thinking of new ideas, I love to be crafty.  However sometimes I'm not sure just how to execute my ideas and Pinterest is my lifesaver in that area.  
We are learning about zoo animals and I had this big box that was taking up space in my garage, so I thought how cool would it be to make a safari jeep for the kiddos to go on safari.  While searching on how to create this jeep I found the cutest idea for safari hats, on Growing Book by Book.

I can't believe how cute the jeep turned out.  The kids where so excited to go looking for animals!   

The kids wore their safari hats and use binoculars to hunt down the hidden animals in the classroom. 

They had such a great time:)
