About 10 Years Ago....
I loved these snakes. Just take a large piece of construction paper and cut around and around until you get to the middle and unravel and you have a sneaky, squiggly snake. Then hang from the ceiling.
The Streamer tree. I was visiting a preschool classroom while I was in college and saw this. The teacher had filled a whole corner part of the ceiling with these green streamers hanging down. I made a smaller tree and could add colored streamers in there for fall (we had to try and enjoy fall in HOT Guam :) (Just attach streamers to the ceiling with sticky tack....do they still have sticky tack? I really hate that stuff, but it works for projects such as this).
You gotta love kindergarten! Rainbows! The alphabet! Sweet 5 year olds who love school!
Did you know of my secret crush on Eric Carle, the author of the Very Hungry Caterpillar? Nothing to worry Dave about....I just admire his creativity and the way he can totally delight small children with his books (that teach so many things in one story....days of the week, fruit, numbers, life cycle of the butterfly...). This caterpillar was a class project. Each child got to paint a paper plate with greens and yellows. Together, a class caterpillar.
