Ll is for Lobster

Even though school is just around the corner, we are still working on letter recognition with Nathan.  Yesterday we learned about the letter L and made a cute lobster craft to go with it.  I saw this lobster craft on the Handprint and Footprint Art blog.  I thought it was really cute and knew we had to do it when we did the letter L.  Here's a look at Nathan's handiwork.  We got the L worksheets at First School.

For the lobster craft....the paper plate is just to pour the paint onto

Paint one foot red

Stamp the foot onto the paper

Caught RED handed - Busted!

Glue on some wiggle eyes, Draw a face and call it Done!

I had my girls reading but I should have tried more artsy things (that probably would've been more fun for them, hah). Now following you from MBC. Hope you can drop by and follow as well! :)

Oh that lobster is too cute! When I worked at Parent's Day Out, parents always loved artwork that involved body parts. I'll have to share this with my mom who will be working at the PDO where I used to work this fall. You are such a fun mom to take the time with Nathan and all of your crafts. He is one fortunate little boy! -EW

I host a feature on my blog called the Ultimate Alphabet Craft Collection. Would you be interested in linking up your alphabet crafts? I think many people would gain a lot of inspiration from your ideas.
