Preschool Wrap up

We are done teaching preschool, for now!  We are hosting again next month, but won't be teaching again until May.  It was very fun, although it is much more difficult to engage and entertain preschool's than you would think.

Our last meeting of December was holiday themed and we celebrated with cookies, crafts, books and a potluck.

I was pretty surprised at how well the kids did decorating cookies, I was sure that some of them (Colin) would ignore the decorations, eat the cookie, and then eat the decorations, but everyone seemed to like decorating!  (And then eating them of course!)

Kari brough some hanukkah crafts and activities for the kids.  Colin realy liked the Yamaka, so much that he kept it while he did his Christmas crafts, too!

Our next activity was deocrating Christmas ornaments.  We added puff balls to plastic ornaments.  It's so fun to see the different kids approach activites so differently! Colin tends to do a few and lose interests, some kids, like Marlo, shoved balls into the ornament until you couldn't fit another one in!  They came out pretty cute.

After our crafts, we had a book exchange with our friends.  What kid doesn't like opening presents?

We are really enjoying our preschool group and I'm so glad Colin has this opportunity to interact with kids his age.  I am looking forward to our next month.  I have a pretty solid outline already, but I know May will be here before I know it!
