An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ February 25th - March 1st ~ If You Give a Pig a Pancake

A vacation day, sick kiddos, a birthday.. another "not so normal" week that seems to be the norm lately!

Some fun with free painting! 
I gave the children Q-tips, basic brushes, round sponge brushes and a paper plate palette of paint !
(Say that three times fast!)








We also read If You Give a Pig a Pancake and then make papper plate pig masks!



I love "looking out the window" pictures!





Next week: Dr Seuss!!

Be sure to check "Our Favorites" book-widget on the right.  You will find our weekly books there!

  5. Hello, the pig plates turned out so cute. My kids love to paint, and especially love to make animals out of paper plates. Will have to try that one. I am your newest GFC follower and found you via 'Mom's Monday Mingle'. Hope you have a wonderful day!

  12. Preschool activities help kids make learning fun all year long. Also,this is a great idea getting kids into gardening at an early age, so that they can enhance their skill. Pre school education
