Adorable Caterpillar Craft

We started school yesterday! I haven't had a ton of time to respond to your comments and emails. I am going to try to get to most of them tonight. In the mean time, I thought I'd share a few pics of what we've been doing. My youngest started kindergarten, and my oldest started 6th grade! Sniffle sniffle...
If you didn't know already, we're a homeschooling family. I just like to make the kids take a pic in the front yard like they're actually going somewhere. LOL



Doesn't he look thrilled to get his pic taken?
I have to take what I can get with my tween!




We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
and then made these cute paintings.
Super Easy!
All you need is an apple and some paint.
Cut an apple in half and use it as the stamp to make the body and head,
and then just paint the eyes, mouth, feet, and antennae.

AND...

Thanks for all your sweet welcome back comments!
They really warmed my heart b/c I really did miss all of you!

You'll have to keep us up to date on homeschooling those two age groups. When my new little one starts K my son will be in 7th or so. I'm wondering what that will be like.

Hey Adrienne, it was so nice to see you comment. I am so interested in this homeschooling. I see a lot of bloggers deciding to do this. How many hours do you spend a day? I love the pictures. Very cute and the project is really fun looking! I hope you join Mama's Little Nestwork my friend! Have a great night!

What cute pics. SO great you do this with them. I've homeschooled our kids a while and now they're all in public school, but that extra time at home with them is priceless. I think if a person is willing and able, homeschool can bea wonderful choice.

Best of Luck!
