a is for april fool’s 2012 {edible paint, grilled cheese and a poopy diaper}

well, there were silly things like when we drank glue (really it was cream put in a cleaned out glue bottle), ate dirt (really it was pudding and oreos), saw a friend who grew his hair from short and blond to long and black (really it was a wig), shared our sneaky snacks with pastor renee, went out the church door (instead of our preschool door)…….but i didn’t get pictures of those moments.  i did of a few other moments, though.

first off, the pudding in the paint bottle.

i demonstrate how we’re going to finger paint with it and in the middle of my demonstrations i lick my finger.  oh, the surprise!

april fool's!!

it took some kids a while to warm up to the idea of trusting that it really was pudding.

and then, a show and tell surprise like no other (in all my 17 years!):

we knew right away from the show and tell friend that it was just chocolate, but that didn’t make it less silly!  smelling a diaper that looked poopy!?!?  trust me, some friends passed it right by.

  1. I’ve been teaching preschool for going on 12 years now, and I get a bit burnt out. This blog has really given me some fun, creative and educational NEW ideas for my classes! Thanks so much! Sometimes you have to stop and smell the flowers, get a bit silly and messy and enjoy all the little people!
