Photos of the Day: {daycare} Selfies

I like to take photos of the children while they are crafting to keep a log here on the blog. Today the children wanted to take photos, too. "Where is the play camera, Mrs. Jessica?" But I don't have one! Maybe Santa will bring one to the playroom this year. I took a few photos of the children- they love to look at the view finder. "Take another one!" and "Don't forget the baby!" were cheered. Kinda like a daycare selfie?

Reunion! Ms. H

Ms. H visited for a daycare reunion! The girls made their own pizzas, made up a few new imaginative games, made crowns,  and uttered the word princess about a trillion times. So cute!

Fall Crafts

We used food coloring and water with cut straw pipettes to make our own apples. "Where do apples come from?" I asked. My favorite answer, "The apple store!"

We talked about acorns this fall. The children see tons of them falling near our park. They are always tempted to take pocketfuls home but I encourage them to leave them there for the squirrels. I cut out tops and bottoms and they matched upper and lower case. 

Then, after hiding some paper
acorns around the playroom, the children glued them into the tree-hide-out for their squirrel to save for the winter.

We talked about pumpkins growing on vines. The kids drew their own crazy vine and glued pumpkins to it. We practiced upper and lower case Pps.

We made these fingerprint turkey prints (thanks for the inspiration, pinterest). And the sort of token thanksgiving gratitude paper turkey.
