Preschool Bean counter | MapleSeeds Home Blog

Here's something we did last year for Pre-school (yup just getting around to blogging it now!)

I just took an egg carton, and numbered each section, then let little L count some dried beans into each one.

 Hard to believe he is in Kindergarten now! :(

Perler Bead Star Wars Magnets | MapleSeeds Home

I know today is Tuesday, but I just couldn't wait to share these little guys with you! :)

The kids and I made these adorable little Star Wars characters for my sisters, for Christmas (we gave gifts early this year, when we visited them) So now I can share the pattern with your! My inspiration came from a pin on Pineterst. We also created a few more of our own characters (I think the original only had 5-6 characters). You can down load my printable chart HERE.

We hot glued some magnets to the back, aren't they the cutest little Jedis, princesses and aliens you have ever seen!!? :)

Action shot of how we made them.  The kids did most of the layout and I did the ironing. They thought it was great fun!

Don't forget to download the free printable chart from the link at the top!
