I finally have a facebook page (thank you to all of you that kept asking me to make one)!! Make sure to follow me and select "see first" from the drop down menu so that you will get my posts in your feed.
The free membership printable this week is Heart Size Sequence. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
The children put the hearts in order from largest to smallest. I have included two sets so this activity can be turned into a size sequence mat. Children would put the matching hearts on top of the first set of hearts that is already in size sequence order.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday February 4th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added Heart Fine Motor Sheets.

The free membership printable this week is Hot Cocoa Number Match for number recognition and review. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
I set the hot cocoa cups and number circles out on the table in to separate piles. I made sure the numbers were all mixed up in each pile. Children put the cups in numerical order and then put the matching number circle on top of each cup.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday January 28th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added Hot Cocoa Alphabet Match.

We made puffy paint penguins after circle time today. It was a great project for scissor skills ... sensory and fine motor development. We used black and orange cardstock paper to make the the penguins. We free cut the penguin shapes but I have included patterns that you can trace around on the cardstock paper.
The next step was to make the puffy paint which was really easy. The children mixed 1 cup of shaving cream and 1/2 cup of white glue together with a craft stick. The puffy paint should be like a thick marshmallow topping ... if it is not you can add more glue.
The children applied the puffy paint to the penguins using either their fingers or craft sticks. The penguins took a while to dry because of the thickness of the paint.
