Circle Time Activities with VeggieTales

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and DreamWorks, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #VeggieTalesfun http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH
If you like to talk to tomatoes
If a squash can make you smile
If you like to waltz with potatoes
up and down the produce aisle...
Then you'll love our new visitors to circle time! Some of our favorite VeggieTales characters are joining our line-up of activities for circle time. Throughout the year, those activities have included: calendar skills, weather, songs, video clips, daily devotions, memory verses, flashcards, finger puppets, mini lessons, stories, poems, discussion times, and much more! Now, our VeggieTales friends will be joining us! Circle time should be music-filled, interactive, fun, and maybe even a little silly. These characters are bringing positive messages and fun to the time in our home school day that sets the tone for the rest of the day.

Melted Pony Bead Jewelry

As a child, do you remember making jewelry and other crafts with pony beads? They're bright, colorful, and super fun to craft with! They are also really inexpensive which is a huge plus when you just can't stop yourself from buying more craft supplies. Anyone else have that problem?

Did you know that pony beads can also be melted down? It's like getting a whole new craft item to work with! Here I've used my melted beads to make earrings and a bracelet. It's Melted Pony Bead Jewelry! They are fun to wear or give as gifts! Wouldn't these make a cute Mother's Day or birthday present? This is a great craft for the kids to get involved in--with supervision, of course, since it does involve using an oven. Are you ready to make your own melted bead jewelry? Here's how...
