DIY Preschool Recap Oct 1-5, 2012

     For preschool this week, our theme was one of my favorite things: Ice Cream! Big E loved learning about ice cream, and even had a chance to make her own at the end of the week. As you can guess, our letter of the week was Ii. The number was 4, and the word was "can."

  • Put the milk bag inside the ice bag. Tape up the ice bag too.

  1. Thank you for a great activity idea. My son, he's 4, is so eager to learn and very hands on. I have saved this page so we can have an ice cream day. Happy Sunday Robin!
