Fun Friday Freebie

Aloha everyone! I hope the end of the year does not have you in total chaos!! We finally finshed all of our assessments and my kiddos are checking out quick!! I have 5 days left and needed to have some fun activities.  We went out for a class kickball game this week and had a blast!! We have also been watching more videos than usual...Discovery Education has lots to choose from.

Today I decided to do a fun little craft to keep them busy.  These little Surf Buddies were just the thing to keep them busy all morning.



We discussed what everyone had planned for the summer and then I let them loose to create their own Surfer Dude or Dudette!!





How cute are these!!  I plan to use these again at the beginning of the year, but with their names on them.  I think I'm going with a surf theme....original huh!!



These were so fun to make!! If you want the templates just click on the picture above to download from my TpT store.

Have fun!!

  2. Those are cute! But my kids wouldn't know how to surf or even where to surf around here! I don't think the waves on Lake Michigan are big enough for surfing. . . However, this teacher could certainly "DREAM" of coming to Hawaii to surf!!!
    Very cute idea!

    1. I don't think that's true Patty, I know there are surfers in Sheboygan!! They wait for heavy storms and you guys get waves out there!! But surfing in Hawaii is much more fun;)

  5. omgosh - I LOVE this!!

    But as sad as it is - probably only 2% of my class will go to the beach this summer - how HORRIBLE is that?? And we live right next to it!!!
    But I'm still totally keeping this because it's totally cute and so ME! :)

  19. Our school does a reading theme each year that I incorporate into my class room. This year was "race in to reading" and had, as you can guess, a race car theme. Next year will be "catch the reading wave." I will get to use this activity this year as a fun way to end the year and next year as a fun way to start it! :) Thanks for sharing!
