Hello friends! Welcome to crafty Monday :). These antibiotics I’m on are making me feel like crud so I’m behind. Last week, Michael and I finished our bug studies with Danielle’s Place. Also, I made my own Spider lapbook combining resources found online. Enjoy the pics 🙂
We learned a bit about dung beetles. They may have a messy job but they help clean up & they prevent disease. Our other bug buddy study was on antennae and feeling for others. Like I said the last Crafty Monday, Danielle’s Place is worth the membership for all the lessons they have.
I had fun coming up with our spider lapbook. I found a diagram from Enchanted Learning.
I printed out a web design on cardboard then punched holes. Michael used string to thread it.
I found a cute Spider-themed inspirational story that we used for a Bible lesson:
The Magic School Bus had a neat Spider book. We ended the week with the cartoon version of Charlotte’s Web. We also made a spider by painting a bottle cap and attaching pipe cleaner legs. We did a glue-stick web on black paper then sprinkled glitter.
Our other bug craft was a dragon fly made from plastic spoons and knives that Michael painted. We hung it up afterwards.
Look what we found crawling on my laptop. We were so excited to find a lady bug. We put it in our garden.
Speaking of which, our garden is doing well thanks to my hubby. Our squash and cucumbers are thriving.
I think it’s funny that while we were doing bug studies my best friend was doing ocean studies. Now that we are starting ocean studies, she’s doing bug studies lol. Great minds think alike!
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
