Japanese Carp Kite Craft

KoiNoBuriOur Japanese Carp Kites (or more accurately windsocks) make some really beautiful projects for children to make when learning about Japanese culture.  This would be a wonderful end of the unit project for your students or co-op
groups.  Older children might prefer to make these out of fabric see our fabric painting tutorial here.

 

 

 

Materials:

  • Construction Paper (we used 12 x 18)
  • Tissue Paper (Dollar Tree)
  • Crepe Streamers (Dollar Tree)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Hole Puncher

Suggested Resources for a Unit Study:

japanesecelebrations tokyo      japan     japancrafts


Art Project Tutorial:

Step 1

We picked up some inexpensive tissue paper from the Dollar store. Cut U shapes for the scales through all colors.

Step 2

Optional: Get your glue ready on a paper plate, and use a brush to apply it

Step 3

On the long side of the paper, apply a strip of glue, and show children how to glue down their scales.

Step 4

For younger children, you can draw lines for them to follow, so that they're scales overlap nicely.

Step 5

After you finish the first row of scales, add in second row of scales on top of the first. You want each layer to slightly cover the previous one.

Step 6

Continue to add in additional layers of scales, overlapping each previous row. Stop when you're a little over halfway full.

Step 7

Glue a thin black strip of construction paper on top of the final row. This is optional, and just makes the scales look a bit more "Cleaned-Up."

Step 8

Cut out two eyes for your carp, and glue them on your construction paper, spaced as shown in the photo.

Step 9

Cut a variety of colored Crepe Paper Streamers, about 2 feet in

Step 10

Turn your paper over, trim the sides of any extra overhanging scales. Don't trim the bottom, just the sides.

Step 11

Apply a layer of glue along the bottom edge of your paper.

Step 12

Glue on your Crepe Paper Streamers.

Step 13

Roll up your paper (with the scales on the outside) Staple or glue along the edges to keep it together.

Step 14

Punch holes on each side of the paper, and tie a piece of yarn to each hole.

All Done!

Hand your windsock in a nearby tree. When a breeze gets going your windsock and streamers will come to life.

Veteran’s Day Printables

Do you homeschool through the holidays?
We usually continue class as usual for most of the Monday holidays,
but we do try to incorporate so holiday themed activities for that day.

I just can’t DO a four day week.
I’ve tried in the past, and a four day week quickly turns into a three day week,
and then a two day week…and then eventually I give up and say,
Hey let’s just start FRESH on Monday.

A whole week gone, and I’m scrambling to figure out
where we’re going to make it up later!

So, I’ve since learned to do something else for these one day,
beginning of the week holidays.
Here is my magic formula:

-Drop everything except the three R’s.
-Include a special craft, activitiy, or field trip.

There. That’s it.
Impressive huh!

So tomorrow we’ll be reading about Veteran’s Day,
and making some special Thank You Cards.

Of course I made plenty to share.
And of course like a good little procrastinating Homeschooler,
I’ve posted it the night before Veteran’s day.

I realize that’s not the best plan.
I almost just waited until next year to share it,
but then I realized that there is at LEAST one of you out there
who is scrambling for something to do on Veteran’s Day tomorrow.
Obviously, I speak from experience.

Ahem.

So it’s not a fancy set, but I think it will get the job done!
There is a set of printable Thank You badges for children to color,
and use as the cover of a Veteran’s Day card.

I also included some easy to cut decorations,
which would be great for little ones just learning scissor work.
For children who are showing readiness, I also added in some ABC practice
and a small copywork page.

Pretty simple stuff.
You can print the Veteran’s Day Printables here.

Pssssst……
Be Sure to Stay Tuned!!

I have lots more Holiday Printables coming out soon,
They will be available on Christian Preshool Printables
so be sure you are subscribed if you’re interested in more simple sets like this!

Mayflower Craft

mayflower craft

This is actually a craft we did a few years back, but I’ve finally put up a photo tutorial for how to make it. They turned out really colorful too, because this time we used paint instead of markers.

Additionally, I thought it might be fun to have children draw pictures of different items and resources that were aboard the Mayflower and put them into the pocket.

If you haven’t already noticed, for each craft I offer some “Discussion” ideas. (You’ll see them to the right of the “Materials” list) These discussion questions are meant to be things you can be thinking about and teaching on as you complete the craft. It’s my experience (what little of it that I have) that my kids are very receptive to information when it is paired with hands on activities, and they actually commit it to memory easier when we’re having fun learning about it. It’s also useful to have something tangible for the visual learner in all of us, and I think crafts are a great way to fill that need when they are paired with educational topics.

Blah Blah, right? You know, just in case you were wondering what all that discussion stuff was.

Anyway,

Here are the Photo Instructions

Mayflower crafts

I’ve paired this with the book, “If you sailed on the Mayflower” which has more then enough information to teach children all about the Separatists, and they’re journey to the New World, in search of religious freedoms.
