Art with Bluebonnets

   Art with Bluebonnets

Since spring has arrived here in Texas, bluebonnets will be popping around everywhere. To celebrate their arrival, we will be making these cute bluebonnet finger art. It is as simple as drawing a green line and dotting the line with blue finger dots. It’s simple, but we love this hands on craft! If your child does not like the feeling of paint on his or her fingers, q-tips can be used. Happy spring and happy crafting!

Notable Dates In History

We’re in for a full month of learning and we just can’t wait to get started, as February brings several holidays, celebrations and notable dates in history.

The first day of February is ”National Freedom Day,” when the first meeting of the U.S. Supreme Court was held. February 2nd is “Ground Hog Day.”  If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, that means we are in for six more weeks of Winter.  If Phil does not see his shadow, we will have an early Spring.

Several important people were born in the month of February: Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman doctor; Rosa Parks, a woman who was arrested and fined for not giving up her seat on the bus to a white passenger; author Charles Dickens, who once mentioned that memories from his childhood helped him create his fictional stories; Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, was against slavery and believed that all people should be free; George Washington, our first President of the United States.

 Make a Friendship Fruit Salad!

What a great way for our kids to learn about sharing with our friends!

We had each child bring in their favorite fruit. Then we exercised our practical life skills! We peeled, cut and sliced our fruits. Each child put their fruit in our class bowl and …voila!! A delicious and healthy snack for all of us to share!
