124 Days ’til 40: Preschool Art

20 Oct

Have any of you read Eric Carle books?  They are certainly a favorite with the younger students at our school!

Today I was spending time with our preschool students and I got to see their wonderful artwork  They used cut egg cartons to make caterpillars after they read the book, “The Hungry Caterpillar.”

So sweet.

Today, 124 days ’til 40, I am thankful that I can pause and enjoy the wonderful things in life – like the artwork of our three and four-year old students, and their smiling faces!  They were SOOO proud!

    I’m really enjoying your blog– the things you wrote about remind me to be aware of what’s happening in this moment, instead of being on auto-pilot. Love the kids’ projects!
