Treasure Box Party Favor

Gather some pirate goodies:) I tried to find chocolate coins but couldn't, so I did the ring pops. You could also do tattoos, necklaces, rings, gold nugget candy bars etc. I tried to keep it low candy:)

 Also some sort of filler. I snagged these for 10 cents each after last Easter:)

Fill each bag and roll it down.

Add 2 strips of masking tape.

Use glitter glue to make a key hole.

We used these for our treasure hunt that I will post tomorrow:)

My son loved it sooooooooo much! He was ecstatic when he saw it:)

Number Mats

I made these counting mats years ago and still use them all the time! I put out seasonal counters with them and the kids love to spread them out and fill them up:)

They have held up really well so I decided to add a new feature. On the back I used glitter glue to draw the number and the multiplication possibilities in arrays. It is a wonderful texture to trace with their little fingers.

In addition I made new larger mats for numbers 11-12.

I did the same thing on the back of them. These would be great to teach a variety of lessons. Prime numbers, counting multiplication, division greater and less then and many more;)

Drawing Insects(to learn the body parts)

This is the third year that I have done a "Draw an Insect" activity and I really think it helps them with the the concept of what makes an insect and insect! 3 body parts, 6 legs. 2 antennae, 2 eyes, 2 sets of wings! They retained the information better when they had to use it to complete their drawing:)
