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?

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 paperacorns around the playroom, the children glued them into the tree-hide-out for their squirrel to save for the winter.
We made these fingerprint turkey prints (thanks for the inspiration, pinterest). And the sort of token thanksgiving gratitude paper turkey.
