For the Kids

School's out but learning is always in. My dear grandson will be in the first grade when school resumes. We were out playing on the sun porch when he and his sister wanted to swing . We have an entire swing set in the back yard but the like the one that hangs by the rafters of the pagoda. Since only one swing can be placed in this area they have to take turns. Of course, as siblings go, not one of them may have one extra minute on the swing so I had them look at the clock on the sun porch and told them what time they would switch out their turns on the swing. I had to tell them; "When the big hand is here it's time to switch." Later, I tried to teach them how to tell time on a real clock (not digital).

Below is the clock I made for them to hang on the fridge. I hope this will help both my granddaughter and grandson with learning to tell time and I hope it will be useful for the little ones in your lives.

All work and no play is no fun. I made flying fish, jellyfish in a bottle, and paper planes. I love making home-made toys for them. I cut them out on plane white card stock so they could decorate them. I'm going to make some sticker for the next time we make these planes. We learned it was best to cut out two plane bodies, glue them together then attach the wings. When time permits I'll share some more of our fun time Summer crafts and toys.They took their planes home so I didn't get a picture.
