Pre K Fun Activity: Learn the Colors While Having Fun!


Hi!

Despite (me)  being still on vacation mode, school is just around the corner, and I thought I could share a fun PreK  level activity wth you guys! 
It's a super cute activity that would be fun to have on hand for a car activity or while waiting at the doctor's office. I hope you like it! 
You can find more of these fun and educational material in at Education.com I love peeking tehre for interesting stuff!

So, let's get started!!!!


Color Names
Help your child learn colors in a bright, engaging game using craft sticks and markers! The sticks are separated into two groups. One group has the name of a color written on it in black marker, the other group of sticks will have a variety of designs or patterns created in individual colors. Your child will have to pair them up, and she'll learn the colors while she makes her matches. How fun is this??!!

What You Need
  • 14 craft sticks 
  • Markers, colors of the rainbow plus black 

What You Do:
  1. Separate the sticks into two piles, seven sticks in each group. 
  2. With the first group of sticks, assign one color to each stick and encourage your child to create a different design or pattern on each stick using that one color. Some example of patterns you could use are zigzags, stripes, and circles. 
  3. On the second group of sticks, have her write the name of each color with a black marker. You may have to help her spell the color names correctly. 
  4. Mix the sticks up and ask her to pair the colors names up with the appropriate colored designs. 
  5. When she's finished, have her read the names of the colors on the sticks while she looks at the color patterns. 
If your child is just starting the process of recognizing color names, you may want to provide a chart for her to use as a reference. Just write out the color names and draw a box with the matching color beside it. Using a reference tool will help increase her confidence as she's doing the activity, and the more she plays the quicker she'll be able to recognize the color names.
I am sure this will be an awesome fun , engaging and bonding moment with any PreK little one!
Enjoy!

Fabric Slouchy Hat Tutorial

Hi!
Many of you know, I have a small hat business - KOKAR- and I love my craft!

Sharing with you gals how I make them, not hard at all, just time consuming, but this is fun too! 
Relaxing too!

I make colorful and funky crochet hats, but people seem to love my fabric slouches.
I usually work with warm and cozy fabric with a stretch and I use my serger, but you can use a regular sewing machine too!
Fold your stretchy fabric in two  (lengthwise)
Cut a rectangle measuring 23 in width and 11 in height. 

Using a serger or a zig zag stitch sew sides together leaving 3 or 4 cm without sewing


. Turn inside out and sew this part. It will be the fold on the  bottom
Final measure will be 22 inches x 10 inches for a hat that fits most adults and teens and has a small slouch.
Fold the fabric in two and cut this shape
open. Sew the sides and leave the middle open


Now bring the sewing sides together so they face each other.
It will turn to this shape
Sew the open part ( looks like a half moon)

Done!




Another one , this time I cut a more round shape on top



The girl and her Kokar hat :)
You can also add a fur pompom...how cuuute?

From phone case to needle case

Hi!
Sorry all, I have been so busy with work and business that I hardly have time to come here , oh nooooo, so bad :(
But I decoded that I will save one day a week to post my crafty makings.
Today: My new needle case from an iphone case that I love and won't use any longer, as I have an iphone 6 for a while now.

Very easy, you all!







Just cut some felt to fit and use hot glue...well, this is it!
