Free Kite Scissor Skills Printables

St. Patrick’s Day is over, and we have had our fill of rainbows. So for the last few days, it’s been all things kites in the classroom. The end of the school year is creeping upon us, and I needed to see where some of my kids are at with their scissor skills. I made these kite cutting sheets, which proved to be a fun way to assess their progress.

There are 3 free printables available: one straight line, one curvy, and one zigzag.

Shaving Cream Easter Egg Craft

Finger painting with shaving cream allows children to explore, experiment, and create – all while strengthening their senses. Let’s finger paint some Easter eggs!

Shaving Cream Easter Egg Craft

Simply add a few drops of watercolor to the shaving cream, and blend. Give the children a large egg shape (download the free template here) or, depending on their age and ability, encourage them to cut out their own. Allow the kids to work the colors into the construction paper with their fingers.

What’s so great about this activity, is the way the shaving cream adheres to the paper. It goes on so lightly and dries almost instantaneously, yet it remains rich in color. The eggs don’t become soggy, making them prone to tearing or ripping like they normally would with regular paint or straight watercolor.

Preschoolers may then glue (a dab will do ya) their eggs onto a bigger piece of construction paper. Add some Easter grass, and voila! This colorful finger painted egg is the perfect Easter decoration for any bulletin board or refrigerator.

MATERIALS USED:

– Construction paper
– Glue
– Our free printable egg template
– Scissors
– Easter grass
– Shaving cream
– Watercolors
