April Pocket Chart Calendar Cards

 

Free Printable April Pocket Chart Calendar Cards | Life is Peachy

I can’t believe March is almost over already! We’ll be traveling out of state in a couple days for my sister’s wedding (EEEEEKKK!) so I’m really happy I got the April Pocket Chart Calendar Cards done in time to share with you BEFORE April since I won’t be working on my blog during our vacation. This will be our first plane trip with Goose and Baby Bird. I’m a totally high-strung person and am already starting to panic. It’s a good thing there are loads of tips online for traveling with kids because I’ve been conducting research for months! Wish us luck, folks!

This set has an April Showers theme. We rarely get rain where we live so we’ll just live vicariously through the cute clip art on our calendar.

These cards will fit a standard size pocket chart calendar.

The holiday cards can be put behind the corresponding date cards. The holiday name and image will peek out over the top of the date card.

DIY Large St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Mat

How to Make a Large St. Patrick's Day Sensory Mat | Life is Peachy

We love sensory activities in our house. They’re such a fantastic way to promote learning through play. Our sensory activities tend to be confined in a small bin but not this one! This large St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Mat was a huge hit with my kiddos. And it was really inexpensive and super easy to put together!

What you’ll need:

  • Plastic tablecloth
  • Shaving cream
  • Green tempera paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Baking soda and Kool-Aid powder
  • Small spray bottles filled with water
  • Random green and/or St. Patrick’s Day items found around your home or from your local dollar store or Target Dollar Spot

So let me start by saying, this is an outdoor activity. Unless you’re much braver than I am. We do lots of messy play indoors but this one is especially risky…

Lay out your tablecloth and set out all your sensory supplies on top of it.

The white powder is a mix of baking soda and Green Apple Kool-Aid powder. When you add water to it, it fizzes. (See fun Surprise Color Eruptions activity). I mixed two packets of Kool-Aid and a tablespoon or two of baking soda and spread it out in two piles so Goose and Baby Bird would each have their own. This was the first thing Goose went for. Color eruptions are one of her favorite activities, ever.

I mean, seriously though, how cool is this science experiment?! And it smells fantastic!

I also drizzled some green tempera paint onto a big mound of peach scented shaving cream, which was the first thing Baby Bird was drawn to. She LOVES painting…on paper, on the couch, doesn’t matter. She’ll paint it.

Turns out Baby Bird loves spray bottles. She sat there and sprayed absolutely nothing for I don’t even know how long. Workin’ her fine motor skills.

A little experimenting with what happens when you add the Kool-Aid mix to playdough then spray it with water. I love Goose’s creativity.

Those poor little feathers there in the background…Goose and Baby Bird didn’t play with them all all. I was surprised. I thought they’d love them. They were much more into painting with the paint/shaving cream mixture and spraying the little bottles of water.

My girls had an absolute blast with their large St. Patrick’s Day Sensory Mat! It has so many different textures and scents to explore. Everything we used, except the Kool-Aid, was from The Dollar Tree. Even though it was so messy, clean up was pretty easy. The girls got hosed off then put in the bathtub. I rinsed off some items I wanted to keep (paint brushes, little green cups, spray bottles, coins) then folded up the rest into the tablecloth and threw it away. Super easy!

Please share any of your favorite St. Patrick’s Day activities in the comments and I will pin them!
