Wednesday, March 18th LFH Activities

Welcome to a Wonderful Wednesday edition of the MRASP Learn From Home Blog!


Today's activity choices include a fun food+art project courtesy of Jennifer & The Kids Activity Blog, a homemade home scavenger hunt designed by Carra, & a classic card game from Meg!





Homemade Scratch n' Sniff Painting


Name of the activity: “Scratch n’ Sniff” painting

Grade Level: K-1

Theme: Multi-sensory exploration, Non edible- Kosher. Allergy Warning of Gelatin


Materials: White crayons, Jello, Glue, Mixing bowls and spoon, Paintbrush, Paper or Card stock


Ingredients:

• 1 Tablespoon of White Glue

• 1 teaspoon of Water

• 3/4 teaspoon of Chocolate Powder OR Flavored Gelatin depending on what smells/colors you want

**Allergy adaptation = use of real food items. Strawberry for red, Blueberry for Purple, etc


Instructions:

Step 1: With your white crayon draw shapes, or whatever your imagination desires on the cardstock paper. In after school we’ve done crayon resist painting prior so this should be familiar to some students.

Step 2: With the help of an adult combine your Jello-Glue mixture according to the recipe provided. This should make runny, “paint” with a light scent.

Step 3: Paint over your picture with paint mixture. Once dried a light scent should be left behind on your masterpiece!

Spoons


Age Level: K and up

Number of Players: 3+


Supplies Needed:

Deck of cards

Spoons (1 less than total of players)


How to Play:

Arrange the spoons in a circle in the middle of the table or floor

-Each player starts with 4 cards (object of the game is to get 4 of a kind)

-The first player (dealer) takes a card off the top of the deck-they can keep it and pass one of theirs to the next player, or just discard it to the next player

-Every player passes a card to the player on their left- again players can choose to keep it and discard one of their own cards, or pass the card to their left

-This keeps going until a player gets 4 of a kind-once they have 4 of a kind, they grab a spoon and yell “Spoon!”

-Everyone tries to grab a spoon and the person who doesn’t gets an “S”

-This goes on until everyone has gotten all the letters in “Spoon” except one person. This person is the winner!
