Prest O, Change O……Turning Pants into Shorts!

A friend and co-worker of mine recently asked me if I could make her PJ bottoms into shorts.  Of course I would! And I could not pass up the chance to show how easy it really is!  This project took maybe 20 minutes.   I have done this to pants to make them into crops as well!   It’s “sew” easy!

Start with the pants!

Then iron out all wrinkles.

Next, measure and cut to desired length.

Turn the shorts inside out, then roll up and iron about a 1/4 inch, then roll up and iron another 1/4 inch.

F is for Frog…

Today was all about frogs!!  We read “The Frog House” by Barbra Garrison.  This was a cute story about a frog who makes his home in a bird house.  Tomorrow I am bringing in “The Wide Mouth Frog” by Keith Faulkner.  I love this book!  It is so cute and has so many fun pop ups in it and a fun surprise splash at the end!  We sang our F song from the Alphabet Flip Chart again and then made frogs and flies for art.

Fishy, Fish…

Yesterday we continued learning all about the letter F and fish.  We read the book “Fish Eyes” by Lois Ehlert.  They loved counting all of the fish in the book.  We sang the F song from the Alphabet Flip Chart and then made fish bowls and hand print gold fish.  It was a fun day!

The F Song

(To the tune of Alouette)

Five fast fishes swimming down the river.

Five fast fishes swimming down the stream.

Swimming past five floating logs,

Swimming past five croaking frogs.

Floating logs. Croaking frogs.

Floating logs. Croaking frogs.

Five fast fishes.
