The Space Man

Introducing "The Space Man."  Isn't this little guy adorable?  My amazing, fabulous, fantastic para Ms. C noticed that many of our students were squishingtheirwordsalltogetherlikethis.  In just a few minutes flat, she made a whole bunch of these adorable little guys to help with writing.  All the kids need to do is put the Space Man at the end of the word they just wrote before writing the next word.  I can't even tell you how much they LOVED using these little guys.  It sparked tons of interest in the writing center because everyone couldn't wait to use these little astronauts. 
I love how they all look just a little bit different!
 

 Ms. C whipped up each Space Man using half a clothespin, a little paint and a Sharpie.  She is magical!  I am trying to convince her to sell these.  Don't you think she should?

These are so cute! I've seen the spacemen in Really Good Stuff, & frugal me....I've always thought there has to be a way to make these for less! Thanks for sharing! This may be my project for today!

Wow! I can't believe these are handmade. I had some from really good stuff year ago. I will have to make some this year! Thanks for sharing!

They are already sold. I have a whole box that were bought out of a teaching magazine about 6 years ago, but I love how yours are handmade. I may need a few more next year and instead of buying them I can make my own.
