What We Have Been Doing...

It has been kinda hard to write on the blog lately.  You see, I am closing Kozy Kids Family Childcare down.  I have received an offer to assist in a transitional kindergarten class next year, and I decided to take the position.  Although I know I will enjoy this new adventure, leaving behind this one has been hard for me.  Knowing that I will not be here to greet the kids after summer is over has been very sad, and I have been avoiding the blog as it reminds me to much of what I am giving up.

Family Childcare is just that, an extended family.  Each child I let through my door, invariably becomes part of me and wiggles their way into my heart.  I will miss them more than I know how to admit.

Sun Catchers

With the beautiful summer weather really starting to take shape we thought it was time for our annual sun catcher project.  
Out came the glue, tissue paper and clear plastic plates and off we went!!!
I'm telling you, that tongue is the absolute cutest!!
She has it out whenever she is concentrating!!

"Look Shell, Look Shell"
I am guessing there is glue on that little hand!!

Lil Bit went through A LOT of tissue paper.  She would pat it on the glue, then it would stick on her fingers, over and over again.  She would then take it off and try again, over and over again.  You wonder why she is always the last one at the table ;)

"Oh I got this... I don't even need to sit down for this project"

We were very proud of our finished products!!

Tie Dye Day

Tie Dying with the 3 and under set makes for an interesting morning!!!
We started off with the same kit as last year, I let the kids dunk their shirts in water and squeeze the water out, then they picked their design from a little colored pamphlet in the tie dye box.  I did the best I could to simulate the design like the photos and rubber banded them up.  

Off we go...

Last year we used the same kit and made 6 shirts and had lots of color dye left over... 
This year, we ran out a lot quicker.  I guess the little ones squeezed the bottles harder or something, because we were lucky to get enough color for the 5 shirts we did.

But the final products were great!!!

I found instructions on how to make the little heart...
I love how they came out!!!
Look how cute we look!!!
