Teaching Heart Makes Ressurection Eggs  Includes Many Free Printables!!!

Ever since I started teaching Faith Formation (CCD, Sunday School…) I always use the Resurrection Eggs during the Lent season in my third grade classroom.  In the past I have made the lap book seen here with my class or the little book seen here.  Both are very effective…  but this year I decided that I wanted each of my 18 students to make their own real Resurrection Eggs.  It turned out to be a great idea! I want to share with you how my class made our eggs (including free printables so you can make some too) and tell...

  How much bunny fun can one teacher take?  I may be ALMOST bunny-ed out!!!   Maybe a post or two left on this topic and it will be time to move on!!!  Have to share this so fun craft!!!  I wish you could see the peeps better in the pictures.  We painted them with salt paint and when the paint dries, it feels and looks like how a real Peep feels and looks.  So fun!!!

Peeps Bunny Digging for Carrot

I wanted a fun snack to end a bunny theme in Preschool…  So I typed in Bunny Peeps on Pinterest and got a ton of ideas!!! So I saw these on Pinterest… and decided… It looked like too much work for a week where I am suppose to be studying…  But I had a girlfriend who made these and she said it wasn’t bad… However, this looked easier…   No cutting involved… I found the pre-made carrot decorations at Target yesterday and that sealed the deal!!! However, if you want to go the extra mile…...

To make this you will need: 1 box of carrot cake mix, 2 cups of flour, 1 1/2 cups of salt, 6 tsp of cream of tartar, 6 tbls oil, 3 cups of water, -Carrot Shreds (Optional) , - Red...

Bunny Bottle Sensory Craft

Here are two fun sensory themed ideas for a bunny themed unit:  (For More Learning Bunny Fun – See this Unit) The first is a fun craft.  An O-So Cute Bunny Sensory Bottle!!! You need a bottle filled with water.  I used the sports bottles that are circular shaped, but you can use any shaped bottle. I used a sharpie to outline a bunny face  on the bottle. Students picked a color they wanted. They picked a glitter as well.  They also put a plastic bunny inside the bottle. Once all of this is added, the bottle gets closed and the...
