Two of my sweet and very talented/brave friends decided to jointly run a preschool this year. It couldn’t have been a more perfect fit to send Second 3 days a week for a couple hours to a friend’s home with all of his good friends. I don’t know if they will do it again, but I was sure grateful they decided to take the plunge this year and give it a go- it was such a great experience for Second and he learned SO much.
Yesterday we had our graduation and all of the parents helped. I put together a couple crafts for the kiddos to do that I am here to share with you today…
- Last day of Preschool (or in our case we called in Joy School…any other Joy School-ers out there? You know who you are ;)) Questionnaire:
This is a great little project for the littles to fill out with their parents. Let them write their name at the top and you can fill out the rest.
When they were complete we used my handy-dandy laminator (I told you I use it all the time!) so they can be a great keepsake for the families.
How precious is that? When he grows up he wants to be a DAD?? It’s because he has such a stellar example to look up to 😉 It would also be fun to have them do this on the first AND last day of preschool to see how they grow & change.
2. Edible Graduation Hats:
We had the supplies all laid out and the parents helped the children assemble their own hats. The intent was to have them as dessert after lunch, but you know, that didn’t quite pan out 😉
There are lots of cute versions of these floating around pinterest. To make our hats we used resees peanut butter cups for the base and Ghirardelli chocolate squares for the top. I tried several different things and finally felt like the size ratio was right with these squares. The bad news is I really kinda hated wasted this amazing chocolate on a bunch of 4 year olds! Hah.
For the tassel we used M&Ms and those pull & peel twizzlers:
I think these are fun and a great dessert idea for any graduation party (remember what I said about the gourmet chocolate? Yes.. the adults were big fans). Or let the kids assemble them themselves for a great preschool or kinder graduation party craft idea.
This cutie is off to TK in the fall! And we are very excited for summer break!
