Aquatic Animals

For school on Tuesday (yeah I'm slow), we learned about animals that live in the water. Thanks to Than's creative idea of making an aquarium out of a diaper box, we had a fun activity that the kids seemed to enjoy!
Aleksia, Garrick, and Jack coloring their aquatic animals for thier aquariums.

And Kody, at the other end of the table coloring all his animals green.

Kody (he colored all his green) and Jack's (all his are yellow) aquarium out of a diaper box with crabs that they said look like spiders, "They need pinchers!" they told me. Oh well, that was as creative as I felt like getting at the time with two 5 year olds, two 3 year olds, and Trestin (13 1/2 months old) all running around crazy!

Garrick (blue) and Aleksia's (orange) aquarium.

Then the highlight of school for the kids I think was playing with playdough at the end. They had a BLAST!

What a darling idea. It always seems that I try to do crafty little things with the kids but it never lasts long enough to actually finish the project! These look awesome. Good Job!

What a great idea!! I'm going to have to steal that one for our little preschool group. Always so creative! Catherine
