Have the children put the paper on a cookie sheet. Have the children complete the picture by putting a magnet in each circle. Some people use pompoms or bingo markers with them. This activity is designed to promote one to one correspondence and letter recognition.

Using a small hole punch, punch holes at the dots. Have the children lace yarn through the holes.

Owl Shape Craft from Making Learning Fun
Owl School
You can have the children glue them to dark blue construction paper as a reminder to the children that owls are nocturnal. You could also give the children construction paper scraps
and let the children add to seen. An alternative idea is to cut patterns for the owl pieces,
and have the children trace, cut and assemble.

Five Little Owls from DLTK
Owl School
by Leanne Guenther – it’s the same idea as all the other “Five Little ____” nursery rhymes (pumpkins, snowflakes, chickens, monkeys, etc) so it isn’t terribly original. They’re fairly simple to write but some of them start to be a bit repetitive (which is fine for preschoolers!) because there are only so many things that rhyme with four, three, two, one and none.

Super cute printable owl craft (choose pink or blue) from Kids Activities Blog

Let imagination run wild when creating owls – pull out the leftover craft supplies because owls may need feathers, pom poms or to be painted like a rainbow!

Printable Preschool Set: Owlette from Learn Create Love
Owl School
This set includes the following:

Which Owl Is Different – a 4 card set in which your child has to find and circle the owl that is different. You can use this sheet as a whole, or laminate, cut out each card, hole punch the corner, and stick a key ring through it to keep it as a card set.
How Many Owls? (3 pages) – A fun set of cards for your child to practice counting and writing numbers. I laminated, cut out, hole-punched, and stuck a key ring through our set.
Stacking Cards – Laminate and cut out, then have your child arrange in order from largest to smallest or vice versa… or, of course, stack! =)
Line Tracing – Help Owlette get to her friend by tracing the lines provided.

Owl Patterning from Rachel Lynn
Owl School
This a quick and cute patterning activity. It will require a keen eye by the kiddos since all of the pictures are owls. They will have to pay attention to details!

Montessori Madness ~ Valentine’s Day Preschool Trays

This post may contain affiliate links which help support my family. Thank you for stopping by.

montessori Madness banner

Wow, its been quite some time since I’ve written of our Montessori adventures! Here is a sneak peak of Pixie’s Valentine’s Day Preschool TraysPreschool Trays this week.

I printed off two Preschool Packs from Over the Big Moon and A Teaching Mommy

I printed all the pages of both packs to keep Pixie occupied for the duration of the week, and possibly longer (totally dependent on her level of interest and how much work she wants to do at the time, of course) and popped into a file folder. I loved the cover of the Valentine’s day Pack from Over the Big Moon so much that I decided to use it on the cover of the file folder to make it easier for Pixie to identify. She will often grab a file folder with her previous themes and redo some of the activities.

Her trays today have the following printables available:

Valentine’s Day Spelling from Over the Big Moon. This particular activity requires Scrabble like tiles, we unfortunately don’t have any she can used (we have a collectors Scrabble set, so that’s a no go), so I just printed off two sets of the recommended tiles they suggested on the original file.

V is for Valentine Do-a-dot painting from Over the Big Moon. Pixie L.O.V.E.S. her dot painters and this page excited her to no end when she saw it come out of the printer.

What comes next worksheet from Over the Big Moon. I cut out the pictures for Pixie to glue onto the worksheet. I’ll be letting her cut them out from now on. Some scissor practice won’t hurt.

Letter Hh sorting from A Teaching Mommy. Here she sorts the capital from the lower case letters into the appropriate box.

In addition to the activities above, we’ll be using our new Spielgaben 4.0 set! (Post on all our Spielgaben fun coming soon!)

Follow us on Instagram to catch us in action during this week of L.O.V.E.

Johannesburg, 2 December 2015: Puppy power hits Sandton City this week as Nick Jr.’s doggy-themed festive extravaganza gets under way (4-24 December, Sandton City).
This year’s fun-filled celebration, “Sandton City Presents Nick Jr.’s Paw Patrol” is based for the first time around action-packed pre-school adventure series Paw Patrol, Nick Jr.’s CGI animated programme about the exciting lives of a pack of heroic puppies led by a tech savvy 10-year old boy called Ryder.
A unique blend of problem solving skills, cool vehicles and physical humour, the Paw Patrol pups work together on rescue missions to protect the Adventure Bay community where they live. From Marshall the firedog to Chase the police pup and Skye who flies high in her copter, each pup brings a unique personality and skills to the team, demonstrating the importance of teamwork and good citizenship.

Bring your little ones to the Fountain Court, Sandton City from the 4-24 December to learn about staying safe with the Paw Patrol team, and join in some fun sing-a-longs with Marshall (an excitable 6-year old Dalmatian pup who’s the team’s fire dog) and Chase (an athletic 7-year old German Shepherd police dog who’s definitely leader of the pack). Plus there’s meet and greets with the characters and other fun activities such as building block pits and craft stations.
Paw Patrol interactive singalong shows are at 10:00 am, 13:00 pm, 16:00 pm and 18:00 pm daily, with meet and greets at 11:00 am, 14:00 pm and 17:00 pm.
Commented Head of Nickelodeon, Tasania Parsadh, “We are very excited to bring Marshall and Chase from Nick Jr.’s Paw Patrol to Sandton City for the first time; these lovable pups will make kids laugh out loud and also teach kids and their parents about the importance of safety.”

For more rescue fun with the Paw Patrol, tune into Nick Jr. (DStv 307) every day @ 14:10pm.

The Little Prince Movie Premier

little prince movie poster

We were invited by BURGER KING® South Africa to attend a movie premier yesterday at Ster Kinekor at The Zone in Rosebank. BURGER KING® South Africa have partnered with Toy Kingdom and Ster Kinekor for the long awaited premier of The Little Prince Movie.

The kidlets were treated to a visit from the Prince, Princess and the Frog Prince. There was also a balloon artist and face painting before the movie started.

Koko (who has decided that he’s too old for face painting *sob*), asked the balloon artist for a rifle.

She is FANTASTIC and made the girls each a Tiger, Pixie’s animal of the day (there was love at first sight), and a butterfly for Fifi.

The face painter was amazing. Fifi asked to be made into a bear. How beautiful did she turn out? Can you spot the glitter that was added? A girl can NEVER have too much glitter.

Pixie asked to be made into a tiger and giggled her way through the whole experience. The face painter was patient with her and worked around Pixie’s constant touching and smudging.

Our scary Bear and Tiger!

Once we got into the cinema, we were surprised by these little goodie bags filled with a Cap and Scholastic booklets from BURGER KING® South Africa and a “The Little Prince” kaleidoscope from Toy Kingdom.

The movie was amazing. I highly recommend it to everyone, of all ages. Pixie, who is 4, sat through the whole movie till the end. Koko and Fifi loved it and have asked for us to purchase the DVD to watch again when it becomes available. It’s a beautifully told story about a little girl who lives in a very grown-up world with her mother, who tries to make sure she is prepared for it. Her neighbour, the Aviator, introduced the girl to an extraordinary world where anything is possible, the world of The Little Prince. The movie is an adaptation of the book, “The Little Prince”, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Afterwards, BURGER KING® South Africa served a lunch of Burgers and Fries.

The kidlets and I had a fantastic time! If you do nothing else this December Holiday, take your children to go watch this amazing movie, you won’t regret it.
