Our main important thing at programming this week is to remind everyone there are no programs next week. Last year we neglected to do this and it was a disaster!
For Tuesday preschool storytime we read Gobble Gobble Crash a Barnyard Counting Bash (much excitement over counting the different animals), we made turkey masks, using leftover butterfly masks I'd cut for Halloween and feathers. Thanksgiving storytimes always struck me as kinda weird - you read all these stories about turkeys escaping from being eaten, sing cute turkey songs, make yourself look like a turkey....and then you eat turkeys. Whatever.
My same group showed up for Wii gaming. Argh, these kids should be outside running around. They are soooo antsy, bickering, roughhousing, etc. I am going to have to do something really structured next year for this, I think. Probably have to stay in the room and watch them too. Gah, where are my earplugs?
Saturday we had our Make it and Shake it toddler birthday party. This is mainly the brainchild of Miss Pattie, I just threw in some extra supplies and reserved the space. We had a nice big group and the kids had as much fun running around and jumping as they did making shakers and sparkly water bottles.
Time for the holidays! I have lots of reviews to post soon, including the last of my Cybils easy reader reviews....
