Word art

With the kids in kindergarten this year, much of our energy each week is dedicated to learning how to read, write and count. However, we still want to keep up our fun, creative activities. So, this rainy Sunday I helped the kids make some word art.

We started with the theme of "rain" not surprisingly. The kids told me some words to write: "Rainy days sleepy days pitter patter on the roof snuggle cuddle inside".

Alex then asked me to draw a crab and he told me a story to write about the crab. "Crabs go in the sand and they never come back out again. Then one day they come back out again. Look out I'm coming to eat you!"

Jasmine drew a butterfly and asked me to write the following: "Flutter Flip Soft. Flutter by. Up up up in the air. I am bright in the sky. Pretty pink butterfly."

We drew our favourite letters "A" for Alex and "J" for Jasmine and wrote as many words we could think of beginning with those letters.

Lastly we made a poster for the kids' grandfather "Poppy" for his 70th birthday. We filled the "P" with words that remind us of Poppy such as "Funny Poppy. Pie pineapple play. Boat float. Sailing Skiing Sleeping Snoring".


  1. Little buddy is going to need a special cage to lock away the rain in! Great idea and they look awesome on the wall at home.

  2. Yeah I'm not sure how effective it would be to try and lock rain in a cage but interesting concept anyway!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing with Adorned From Above's Blog Hop. We are so happy that you joined us last week. We can't wait to see what you have for us at this week's party.
