c is for candyland

turn taking is tricky.  especially when the board moves and then the people fall.  especially when it’s hard to remember who goes next.  especially when the pile of cards keeps falling down.  especially when arms aren’t long enough to reach the pile of cards.

thank you, tape.  thank you, cup.

g is for groundhog

well, they look more like monsters.  i didn’t plan for them to be realistic groundhogs, but these REALLY don’t look the part.

a piece of fake fur, google eyes on a clothespin so you can take your groundhog monster with you.  happy day.

b is for bell


more thrifted wooden pieces, a bit of pipe cleaner, a jingle bell, watercolors and GLITTER!




we used a couple of techniques to get glitter on:  glue and shaking it on and dipping the wet paint bell in a cup of glitter.  both worked fine.


and yes, we have glitter all over the room (and i am guessing in back packs and homes too).

g is for gift tag

we are on the last three days before christmas vacation.  preschoolers will go home with plates of homemade cookies from church friends, many projects they’ve been saving, and a little gift from the teachers.  here is the color version of the gift tag:

little friends

can you do this?

we love you!

g is for gift

so thankful for the gifts that have been showing up at preschool this week.

i had the children help think of things they wished we had at preschool and we put the items that i think would be under $15 on post-it notes.  families are in no way obligated and i don’t talk to the children about it, it is simply an option for the adults.

more photos to come…thank you, families!
