DIY Christmas cards

Ok readers I know you are all getting ready for Christmas so I wanted to give you a website with some great templates on it.  Last year I used the templates from Simple as that Blog to create this family Christmas card

This week Costco is having a sale on their pictures so take advantage and get these in 5*7 for only 0.18 cents!!!  And if making your own ins't your thing they are also having a sale on their pre-made cards you just have to add your own pictures!

I have our 2012 cards all done and printed off so you will have to wait until Dec to see what those look like!

Duplo Lego Creations

This boy LOVES playing Lego!!! 

I really have been enjoying watching Eben's imagination run wild with all his lego.   He will get it out and play pretty much all day long with it.  Of course he loves leaving it out so Daddy can see all the cool things that he has made; like this lego house. 

My husband also was a lego fan as a child and still is.  I love watching the boys be creative together.  Its one of Eben's favorite things to play with daddy.  Maybe that is why Eben loves it so much cause its something fun that he does with his dad!!

Recently we have found lots of resources online for creative things to make with the lego.  We don't always follow the same colors that they have on the sheets just the designs. 

Here is Eben's T-rex

A moose

And the Duck and T-rex playing together under the coconut tree! heheh

Go fish sight words

Go fish is one of our favorite Friday school activities to do.  You see for our sight words I have been doing 5 sight words each week.  We do different activities to learn the sight words throughout the week.  On Friday's we always do a little test but before we sit down to do our test we go fishing for the words we have been learning. 

I start by putting the letters that we need for our fish in the "water".  Then using his rods which is a dowel with a string attached and a paper clip on the end he goes fishing for the word he is looking for.

I place the fish on the cookie sheet and he looks at each one to see what letters he needs to make that word.  This fish is the word he.

Once he is done spelling the words we clean off the cookie sheet and sit down to do a writing test of the words.  Not all my fish fit on one cookie sheet that is why you don't see the word he on the cookie sheet below! hehe

As soon as I get some new cookie sheets (for baking) I am going to be painting this one to make it pretty.

What are some fun ways you learn sight words?
