Teaching aids from Cuddly Cute Designs

I'm excited to share some fun teaching aids that I made
using files from Cuddly Cute Designs.

I used to be a public school teacher and I miss the
experiences that teaching has.
A dear friend of mine asked if I could help make
some teaching aids for her classroom.
My thoughts went right to Cuddly Cute Designs.

The files I used were:

For the first aid, she wanted a
person that she could cover half of so only one
side. She will have an outline of the
person on the rectangle to illustrate it.
The concept is that we cannot
see the whole person. We have to look
farther to see the whole person.
This will be done with the girl and
sea turtle as well.

How clever is she!

The next aid is a game using the Love You Tons
file. I also added some extra hearts for
spots on the board to advance through the game. The idea
is to get the baby and mother elephant
together by answering the concepts
In this picture, I created hearts with
 first grade Dolch sight words.
The board would be able to be used for any concept
by just using different concepts for the hearts.
Little placeholders will be used to mark the spots
as they work through the game.

I made the board using chipboard and
using in a spray adhesive to adhere the
background paper to the chipboard. An inch
spine was added to the middle so the game board
could be closed for storing.

Have a great beginning of your 2018-2019 school

Zoo Book

I have an awesome book project for you today.

The files I used are:
and various images from Cricut Design Space
to complete the book.

The pages are 6 x 12 inches with 5 x 11 inches
patterned paper mats.
I added buttons, ribbons, and flowers to bling it up.

I had a lot of fun making this book for you and hope
you enjoy it.

Western Cuties - Utah or Bust

I live in Utah. We celebrate Pioneer Day.
Pioneer Day is the anniversary of the
day the Mormon, Latter Day Saints,
entered the Salt Lake, Utah Valley.
That day was July 24, 1847.
They had walked pulling and pushing handcarts, rode on covered wagons pulled by oxen and horses, or rode on horses. Many lives were lost as they traveled from the East of the continental US and some by ship from England.

To create my layout about Pioneer Day, I used
I changed the cowboy hat on the girl to a bonnet like
those worn by the female pioneers.
I also added a covered wagon and wagon wheel borders.
I got the bonnet, covered wagon, and wagon wheels
from Cricut Design Space.

Fairy Houses

I decided it was time for some fun and
created the Butterfly, Dragonfly, and Honey Bee
fairy luminary houses from Dreaming Tree.
They were really fun to create.

Magnolia Manor

I tackled a huge challenge.
I made the Magnolia Manor from SVG Cuts.
It is beautiful with many many details.

 It is a luminary. A battery tea light
or other lights can be placed in the house
so that it looks like lights are on in the house.

Snuggle Palz Bunny

Some of the CUTEST files can be
found in Cuddly Cute Designs.
For this project, I use Snuggle Palz Bunny.

They look so "Snuggly" that you can imagine snuggling up with

I used a foiled sentiment on an oval with flowers
arranged around it. The flowers are from
Wild Orchid Crafts.
