f is for funny

oh boy, this halloween week is funny.  and not JUST because it is f week.  we’re dressing up, making funny projects, eating funny things, singing funny songs…

all of it may be as funny as this:

this is a giant t-shirt donated to us that we stuffed with all the extra pieces from our cape making.  the preschoolers quickly named it “big daddy.”  he is heavy and seems to have the effect of a weighted blanket, so there is a lot of lugging this thing around and on top of each other.  but this also means that things like, “big daddy get off of me!” and “oh, big daddy you are so big!” and “i’m sitting on you now, big daddy!” are heard.

so, families:  if you have heard of big daddy, trust that it is merely a t-shirt stuffed with cut up t-shirts.

but you should try to lift him sometime.  he IS heavy.  and funny.

c is for cape

we made capes out of tshirts:

and while there was a lot of teacher help needed, cutting fabric was a fun thing to work on.

thanks to the thrift shop and families bringing old shirts, we had more than enough for everyone.

then we went flying (after making a cloud for the background…also in honor of c week):

and in general, felt pretty superhero-ish.

b is for balloon jumping

even though there is NO WAY anyone could actually reach the bunch of balloons tied to the ceiling, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t fun and great exercise trying!

balloon jumping

no shoes, yes blankies and yes swirly dresses make the jumping even better.

in looking at the clock in the background, i see that this would have been a few minutes before going home time…one last hurrah to end the day on!


and believe it or not, no children were harmed in the jumping on this day.
