Here are 2 that are found on the site. Thank you to http://www.gudli.com/ for the following extracts from their account page.
Body Pillows :
All you need is a flat sheet of solid color (or fabric)..we used white, fabric glue, (or if you can sew, that may be more durable in the long run) yarn that matches the color of the childs hair, buttons for the eyes and then stuffing for the body. Trace the childs body on the sheet, cut it out, glued it together, leaving an opening for the stuffing and let the little ones stuff and decorate them.
Indoor Bowling :
6 toilet paper rolls (can be decorated) or 16 fl.oz. plastic bottles. Set on ends to serve as pins. Using a tennis ball or small rubber ball, stand 4 to 6 feet away from the bottles. Younger children can stand closer. Take turns rolling the ball to try and knock over the bottles. Let each player have 5 turns. The player who knocks over the most pins is the winner. Ready, set, BOWL.
I am going to have so much fun exploring this site with my year 2 children on the IWB this week.
