c is for campfire (valentine’s style)

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!

s is for sunflower

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!

f is for friendship wall

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!”
