Fun Hands-On Vowel Team Ladders

Word ladders are one of my favorite ways for kids to learn. You get to build the word and have a fun time doing it.

My youngest loves when we have these to build and make words with. They provide a great hands-on learning for them.

Today I have the free Vowel Team Ladders for kids that are working on them!

I like that you can always print and use what you need with these ladders. It makes it easy to set up a center when you know the vowel teams you are going to be working on.

Each page has two vowel teams on them. This makes them the perfect size to use with letter tiles or lacing letters.

I give my girls the small version of the vowel team wall cards, lacing letters and the vowel team they are working on or reviewing.

The wall cards provide them with examples of words that they could build. I give them just one of the cards at a time.

Once they get going they have tons of fun building the words. It allows them to mix up the letter and see what makes a real word vs a made up word.

Fun Fine Motor Craft: Washi Tape Halloween Wreath

We love having crafted decorations for the different seasons. Halloween is almost here and we are decorating our new house! My girls have loved the different Washi tape wreaths that we have made.

It is such a simple craft for kids to do. Plus works on their fine motor skills. They also make fun decorations for the different holidays.

The washi tape wreaths are one craft my girls love to do. They are always asking to use the washi tape for something. My girls were the one to point out we had not made one for Halloween yet.

I love that this is a fun way to build fine motor skills. I have two girls that need help with it but don’t want to do baby things as they call it. But doing this wreath builds those skills and they get to decorate something at the same time.

Plus I love that very little prep time is needed for the craft. I just cut out the center of the plate or have one of my girls do it. I grab and washi tape and we are ready to go!

What you need for this craft:

A fun part about making these wreaths is that you can do what you want. It is a fun process craft that can be different every time.

Each of us did our own paper or not pattern while making our wreaths. It is always fun to see how they all turn out.

We start by pulling the tape out and measuring to fit across the plate.

You turn the paper plate over and press the tape on the back of the wreath. IF you have problems with tape curling up you can use regular tape to help keep it in place
