This last  week we used popsicle sticks to make some Christmas  ornaments. We have already  used popsicle sticks to make different art craft before but this time we made ornaments shaped like a Christmas tree and a star!

Esta derradeira semana usamos palitos de madera para realizar adornos de Nadal. Algunhas veces  empregamos este material para realizar diferentes manualidades pero, neste caso, realizamos adornos con forma de árbore de Nadal e de estrela.

Directions for Popsicle Stick Christmas  Ornaments

1. Glue three green popsicle sticks into a triangle using a hot glue gun. We need two triangles to make a star.

2.Cut another small piece of string to make a loop for hanging. Glue or tape this to the top back of your ornament.

3. Add any embellishments. I added  little golden or silver stars and a big one on the top of our trees.

Indicacións

1. Pegar tres palillos formando un triángulo con pegamento quente.

2. Cortar un trozo de lazo ou corda e pegalo por detrás da  parte superior do triángulo para poder colgalo.

3. Decoralo con purpurina, pegatinas,… Nos engadimos unha estrela grande na parte superior da árbore.

We hope you like it!

Egg carton caterpillars

We continue working on insects  in a fun way.

I started this activity by having children watch “The very hungry caterpillar” film. It was fantastic to see how interested my kids got watching the film version of this Eric Carle’s book. They liked it so much that  I had to read them the story each time we took the activity up.

Comezamos esta actividade coa película do libro de Eric Carle “A oruga glotona”. Foi fantástico ver o entusiasmados que estaban todos con esta historia e, tanto lles gustou, que tiven que lerlles o conto cada vez que retomabamos a actividade.

This is a classic but very easy and simple art craft.

Material needed/ Material necesario

Empty egg cartons (each kid needs a row)/Cartóns de ovos baleiros (cada rapaz necesita unha fila)
