Oh boy did we have a BIG event in Preschool! To get ready for our fun night with our dads we started by making a special craft to put on our bulletin board! Since we would be making pizzas that night we crafted a chef of ourselves holding a “pizza”. The two pieces of pepperoni had 2 reasons we loved our dad typed on them…we put them up on the board, wrote a special message to dad so he would know what to do when we got to school that night and got our special event underway…
When we first got to school with daddy, Mrs. Schoon took a special picture of us with him, then it was time to make our pizzas!
When they were ready for the oven, we played across the hall with Dad while Mr. Vowles, and Jack and Max(Mrs. Vowles’ sons) cooked the pizzas!
We loved making a yummy Monkey Bread snack on our special day! We each ripped a connamoon biscuit into pieces and rolled them into balls that we put in a ziploc bac filled with sugar and cinnamon and then shook it up until all the balls were covered and sweet! Then we put them in our cupcake liner and off to the oven they went! We all agreed they were delicious and that Pajama Day in Preschool is awesome!
We had so much fun on Pajama Day! The theme for our special day was based on the book Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed so we made some awesoem paper plate monkeys! We had already painted one small late brown for the head, and one large plate for the body. Then we glued on big google eyes, cut out our own tummies, just the way we wanted them, and folded up our paper strips for the arms and legs so our monkeys would be springy and ready to jump through the trees!
Oh what fun we had making real Gingerbread man cookies! First, we pressed our piece of dough so that it was big enough to fit our gingerbread man cookie cutter on it, then we PRESSED the cutter down, and removed the extra dough around it, revealing our gingerbread man shape!
Then we decorated our Gingerbread men and girls with mini m and ms!
Then our cookies were ready for the oven! Don’t worry!Mrs. Schoon stayed in the kitchen to make sure they didn’t try to run away!
In keeping with our Pumpkin unit, Mrs. Vowles brought in a special guest for us to meet: it was the GIANT Mr. Pumpkin! First, we checked him out and noticed he had lines on hom..he wasn’t smooth..
Then we painted our interpretation of him at the easels, ONLY using yellow paint(for pumpkin flowers), brown paint (for the dirt the pumpkins sit on), green paint(for the vine), and orange paint (for Mr. Pumpkin)…it was fun to see that EVERY painting was different even though we all used the same colors and were painting the same Mr. Pumpkin!
Then it was time to cut Mr. Pumpkin open and see what was inside! It didn’t hurt him a bit and we loved checking out his seeds and pulp!
Then we carved a pretty heart into him and watched it glow…just like Jesus’ Love glows in us 🙂
