Parent’s Day :)
I can’t believe it’s May already tomorrow. Eeep. Time has gone by soooo fast. I swear I don’t know where the days have gone. I can barely believe a third of 2012 has already gone by, can you? Anyway, the next two months ushers in two important days for the family: Mother’s and Father’s day. I remember back when I was a preschool teacher, we would be planning out events for these special days and trying to think up of presents to give for the parents.
I believe that as teachers, we should encourage our students to create gifts for their parents that will make the day even more meaningful. Often times it’s easier to plan for the mommies because it’s easy to make presents for the girls but guy gifts tend to be a little bit harder. My favorite father’s day gift project, however, are pencil holders made of paper mached toilet paper rolls or tie-dyed neckties One day when I’m not so busy and am back to my create-a-resource-for-preschool-teachers mode, I shall write a better post about it.
In the meantime, are there any gift projects you’d like to learn about? Please post them here and I’ll try to help out
