PIntastic Ideas for April!

 I'm hooking Up with Inspired Owl's Corner & Pawsitively Teaching for  April's Pick 3 Pinterest Picks






When I saw these amazing spring flowers made by kids in middle school, I knew my creative kids in second grade could do it!

Here are some of my kids working on their flowers. They drew them first with pencil. Then, outlined them in black marker and colored it in with oil pastels. When I get back from break, I'll post our masterpiece!

Pretty impressive for a 7 year old!







Who can refuse a cute chick? He just makes me smile =)

We love to make snacks each month so here are some favorites to make for April.

On Earth Day, my kids love to make edible dirt!  We mix our pudding with some cool whip so it's not overloaded with chocolate (is that possible??)  Add some crushed Oreos and some yummy gummy bugs! Dirt never tasted SO GOOD!
