Bubble Snakes

Hi 3rd Grade!

 

For this Fun Friday, we are going to be making Bubble Snakes! All you need is a plastic bottle, a piece of cloth or a small towel, water, dish soap, a small bowl, and a rubber band. Also, if you want to add an extra bit of fun, have some food coloring ready! Take a look at the video and you’ll be ready to start having fun with bubbles. If you are able to, try this outside and see how big you can make yours! Have a great Friday everyone and a happy weekend!

Vocal Challenge

Hey my 3rd grade pals!
So here’s a wacky Wednesday project for you to try at home. Let's call it a vocal challenge. It has a great theme about recycling, which I’m sure we’re all getting quite familiar with while repurposing household objects for art and science projects in the kitchen, a I right? Anyway, it requires teamwork, your voices, a little bit of humor, and 1 to 3 people. Invite your parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, cousins, friends, or neighbors to join you. It can also be accomplished through zoom or FaceTime if you’re not all in the same place or you wish to challenge yourselves even more. Lyrics are provided in the details below the video, so feel free to practice right along with it. Once you’ve got it down, record a video and share it with the rest of us. Have fun ;)

Block Prints

Hello Everyone!
I miss you so very much and all the artful fun we would have every day in LEDP. Today’s project is simple, so allow your creativity take flight as you pull in other materials you can likely find around your home for extra detail or layering (such as a cork, the rim of a plastic cup, or other interesting shapes). Feel free to make other designs on your block with the cord or even print with multiple colors together. Enjoy and send along pictures of your finished products!

Here is what you will need:

 

 

2/3 cup of peanut butter (or any other kind of nut butter- such as almond butter- or for the nut-free option, sunflower butter)

 

1 cup oats

 

1 1/2 tablespoons honey

 

1/4 cup chocolate chips (or raisins, M&Ms, or treat of choice)

Origami

Here is the activity for today (Friday). Here is an intro for it and a youtube video.

 

Hi 3rd grade!

 

 

We know you all love when we do new origami projects, so here is a fun one you can do with your family today- Origami Spinners! If you don’t have origami paper at home, don’t worry! You can use any kind of paper you want, as long as you have 6 pieces and cut them into squares. Also, the video uses small-sized paper, but if you want yours to be bigger, that will work too! It is completely up to you- make it your own, try out different colors, and most importantly, HAVE FUN! Happy Friday everyone!
