This craft includes 3D templates for the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

For each craft, your kiddos will write a short informational report on each side (there is a creative imagine and draw form for young students) of the planet. It's a fun way for your students to research and learn about the planets.

In the end you get a great classroom display or solar system bulletin board! The results will be out of this world.

You can print the black and white planet templates on white or colored paper since I have included two options.

Please send me a picture of your final solar system project to for me to share on my blog! I love to see what you are doing in your classroom. Thanks!

Pumpkin Craft: This simple, one-page printable black and white pumpkin craft lets students design their own jack-o-lanterns. To design the jack-o-lantern, the students color the pumpkin. Then they choose from circles, ovals, triangles, and diamond, and crescent shape to make the face.

Fall Life Cycle of an Apple Craft for Fall Activities

It's apple season, and it is the best time of the year to teach about apples. In fact, just last week I got to visit an orchard and sample many varieties of apples. I was quite fond of the honey crisp apple. You can bring apples into your classroom this fall with my 3D apple craft. This apple craftivity looks great and is simple for students to make. This is a super fall apple activity for children.

The best part is that they are learning about the life cycle of an apple as they create it. My apple is red, but go ahead and add a bit of variety of your own and print the apple patterns on red, yellow, and light green paper. Perhaps your students could pick the color of their favorite type of apple.

You can find this apple teaching resource called Apple Craft: {Life Cycle of an Apple Craftivity} {Here}.

Thanks for taking a look and happy apple picking!

Oh, did I mention that they also had caramel apple cookies in the bakery at the apple orchard too. Now that's what I need a recipe for!

Weather Crafts for Preschoolers -- a rainbow and cloud craft for weather themes

I'm super excited about this weather craft for preschoolers. It's perfect for kindergarten, first, and second grade science activities too. Add a rainbow craft to your next weather lesson or weather unit.

 This simple craft lets young students cut and paste and color. Students will cut out the sun, paste the sun rays, glue cotton balls to the cloud (you will need 14 cotton balls for each student or you can use a dauber or bingo marker), and color the colors of the rainbow.

This is great for working with learning colors too. (This craft uses purple instead of indigo and violet since those colors are not in the 8 pack of crayons.) This weather craft makes a great bulletin boards too so be sure to display them. You can find it in my teaching resource store {HERE}.

I want to add a little update. Check out what the students of a teacher friend created in their class this week.
