Paper Cutting Practice

Head & Tail Match

  • Did some head and tail matching at his desk with printables found at TurtleDiary.com — thanks!

Brown Bear Words

  • This is from the cute Brown Bear, Brown Bear pack from 1+1+1=1!
  • I trimmed the colored word/animal pairs but left the black and white tracing ones as worksheets
  • Gave him colorful markers to trace and color the B&W pages!

Wild Kratts Bookmarks

  • Printed out the Wild Kratts Bookmarks from PBS
  • I punched the holes out and gave him some strings to tie on!

Bird Stickers

  • Gave him some more circular bird stickers to decorate something!

Sea Animal Cards

  • Printed out a set of cards with sea animals on them, accessed from Realistic Coloring Pages
  • I cut them out but we encouraged him to color them!

Feeding Elephants

  • For ours I found a cute elephant and put a peanut underneath his trunk. I put one of the numbers 1-6 on each
  • Printed these in color and trimmed
  • Then put the elephants in sections of a dollar store tray
  • Rather than buy peanuts (the original plan) I used nuts we had already.
  • Feed each elephant!

Letter Matching

  • Started with a very cute set of hand-me-down alphabet blocks from Mattel. They are acrylic and has something inside to match the letter.
  • I picked out the ones that had animals inside, and got wooden alphabet tiles to match.
  • Nice use here of a previously packaged up baby toy!

Sticker Barn

  • Printed out a blank barn coloring page – thank you!
  • Also gave him some stickers, and he had plenty of coloring options to choose from.

Brown Bear Graphing

  • This is another cute activity from the Brown Bear, Brown Bear pack from 1+1+1=1
  • I trimmed the die piece and put it around a wood block for stability
  • Roll and mark your results on the graph!

Cute Coloring Pages

How to Draw Fish

Cutting Strips

  • With some space to spare on pages I was color copying, I made some simple strips for him to cut and make patterns with the cut out animals.

Lacing Farm

Animal Books

Animal Dough Tray

Playmobil Zoo

  • Simple again: we just stuck all of the PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 Large Zoo in a bin! He has the creativity now to figure out what to do next!

I needed a week of an “easy theme” – that’s where Animals came in this time. It is in the place of something that would have been a little more work! But, doing a set of simple animal tot trays helped me get prepared for the next couple months. I needed that!

He is having so much fun coloring and cutting and is at the age that I like to keep putting that stuff out to boost his confidence. It’s nice to see him so happy with himself!
