when we had 3 bags of marshmallows come to preschool, we made time for a campfire to “roast” them.
using our battery tea light candles, some smooth dowels (thank you otis) and a red scarf, we had a delightful campfire.
i am grateful that no one got hurt with the skewers and i hope there aren’t too many cavities.
i plan to keep the tea lights, dowel rods and scarf as a kit for children to use. i think it would make a great gift for a young child too!
all i could find was a slightly neon-toned yellow paper. we put out yellow crayons and pens to soften the color a bit.
then snowflake style, we offered the preschoolers a paper folded in fourths with one petal shape drawn on.
some thought they worked better as airplanes.
then gluing them around a center and adding an O shape for the middle with a cardboard stem.
our state flower!
the greatest thrill seems to be that the friendship wall is taller than the preschoolers.
i heard someone say, “and that isn’t even all our friends!”
welcome to winter!
how about making yourself a fireplace!
still from this painting project, we cut flames and glued them to a big paper.
(here we are showing our favorite pages from christmas books.)
if you don’t have a bridge/boat, the kids think you could use chairs or a table on its side. : )
in anticipation of christmas projects, i wanted some painted paper that looks like fire. since it was k week, we started with red paint (in a ketchup bottle). this is almost as funny as this.
we added a new color each day: red, yellow, orange.
the yellow was glitter paint!
the first day we painted paper taped to the table. since i had to clean the table anyway, we switched to painting the actual table and making prints of their work.
here is proof that they were wearing paint shirts. i don’t think any of their clothes stayed clean, though:
