Awesome April Activities




April is more than likely my most favorite month of the year! There are so many fun things you can teach during this month relating to: 
  • April Fools Day. What is your favorite April fools joke for school? 
  • Autism Awareness
  • Life cycle of chickens, butterflies, and flowers
Here is a fun activity for your kids!! Mine loved seeing their 'hair grow.' 

This one is amazing too!...be warned: this can stink up your room!! We couldn't figure out what the smell was, but it was so fascinating to watch it grow and label the different parts.

  • Water cycle (related to rainy days)
  • Easter
  • Earth Day (reduce, reuse, recycle)
This is my absolute favorite cooking activity for earth day.  I would like to preface...If you use food coloring, wear gloves when rolling the balls.  Otherwise, it will stain your hands!

This is a cheap work task that you can make from dollar tree.  I laminated and velcroed my pieces onto the correct bin.

  • Fiesta (if you're in S. Texas) These little pinatas are so perfect!! My kids also like to make quac and chow down on some chips!
