FUN WITH RULERS

The following little activity is great for children learning measurements and how to use a ruler. It’s also a fun mini art project. Follow the photos to learn how 🙂

MATERIALS
To start you will need a piece of paper, pencil, ruler, and markers or pencil crayons.IMG_7653 

STEP 1
With your pencil and ruler make two lines that connect; one vertical and one horizontal.IMG_7655 

STEP 2
With your pencil, make a small mark every centimetre along the lines you’ve drawn.
You can use your ruler to help 🙂IMG_7656

STEP 3
At each point you’ve marked on the paper begin numbering.
I measured out 17cm. So I should have 17 marks on my paper.
Examples in the following 2 pictures.IMG_7660IMG_7662 

STEP 4
Using your ruler, begin drawing a line between the matching numbers.
Example: 1 to 1, 2 to 2, and so on. You should begin to see the pattern.IMG_7663 

After connecting all the matching numbers you should end up with something like this.
You can even fill in the spaces with different colours to create a cool effect.IMG_7664

I’ve created a template if you’re out and about and your kids want something to do.
(Don’t forget your rulers) 😉 DOWNLOAD HERE: RULER DESIGNRULER DESIGN

Hope you all have an excellent start to the Winter Season!
Keep warm 🙂

Our Crazy Animals!

We very happily live on a farm in Creston, BC. The other day the sun was shining and  so Micheline’s daughter, Hannah, decided to head outside for some relaxing quiet time. The following is what she wrote about her little adventure outside and it also includes some pics of our crazy farm animals – it was so cute we had to share! 🙂

It was such a nice day out! And since I had planned on writing out the lyrics of one of my favourite songs I thought, ‘Might as well go outside and hang out in the sun and relax.’   

I got out there with my pen, paper and iPod, I sat down in the grass not too far from my ponies. The kittens were playing underneath one of the blue pine trees and Nala – our dog – was hanging out as well.

I began to write the lyrics of the song and my pony, Bandit, decided to come and say hi. He was nibbling grass, creeping slowly closer and closer, (He thinks he’s pretty sneaky. 😀 ) I thought nothing of if until he shoved my shoe out of the way to get the grass underneath! He kept shoving either my shoe or my knee or my hand. Eventually I pushed his nose away and kept writing.

Then the kittens decided to join, they came up and rubbed all over me and one jumped onto my lap and was purring in my ear and rubbing on my arms as I tried to write!

And of course who should show up next but Nala!!! She sat down beside me and was licking my hand. So I stopped writing and sat there for a minute petting the dog, petting the kittens. And occasionally shoving Bandit out of the way, thinking, ‘Yeah. This is real relaxing.’

After a bit I began to write again. This time I tried to ignore the animals. One of the kittens was attacking my headphones, one was sitting on my lap and Bandit…well he stole my pen. I wasn’t too happy with him for that.

Sigh…but those are our crazy animals! They just love you to death!!

Taking the Cat for a Walk?

The forest on the back of our property has a trail that loops around and follows the fence line. This morning Shane, myself, Hannah and Hunter went for a walk in the forest. Obviously, our dogs LOVE to go for a walk but the funny thing is that one of our cats does as well… actually Ogden (that’s his name) is still a growing kitten but he goes with us for the entire walk!!! We are wondering if he is really a puppy at heart! 😀

He’s just about as cute as Miss Emily! 😉
