Chicka Chicka Boom Boom & Monkey's

Today we made our first "Snazzy Snack" of the year. I previously blogged about this when I first began blogging and got this idea from Christina Bainbridge. Last year was my first year doing the "Snazzy Snacks" and the kids loved it. I look forward to doing them again this year!!

Today we read the book Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom and then we made Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom Trees. This snack was inspired by a pinterest (I Heart Crafty Things) find that I stumbled upon one day and knew then I had to do this with my kids. 




The first week of school (3 weeks ago) we made these cutie patootie monkeys that my mom helped make pattern for. The poem in the middle of the bulletin board says:
Finally, finally school is here,
Parents smile from ear to ear.
And say with a pleading grin,
Teachers let these monkey's in!

I found this poem a few years ago on a website and can't remember where. Sorry!

Happy weekend friends!!

@ Kristina- Yes I do have a pattern. My mom did the pattern for the monkeys. She is very helpful and comes up with most of our patterns for our projects.
