ALL ABOARD THE PRESCHOOL TRAIN
It's that time of year, and we are getting back into the swing of preschool around here. Our actual curriculum doesn't get started until September, but we are practicing our skills and learning the routine. This week, we are doing CHOO CHOO trains as our theme. I hope to share with you more of the fun crafts and projects we are doing this week (such as cubby labels and train picture frames made from my Silhouette die cutter and a fun tracing worksheet with a choo sticker made with my Xyron Create-a-Sticker machine). I love technology (when it is working!) This craft is a shape train puzzle that I found an image for on the internet (and I can't give credit because I don't even know where I found it, but thank you to whoever posted this!) I used the template to cut out pieces for everyone, and I printed a template for them to use as a puzzle. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they were all able to match the pieces. The ages ranged from 18 months to 5 years old. (The picture above was done by a 2 year old). Have fun!
