messy day – day 1
we’ve got about a week and a half left of preschool for the year. i am PSYCHED for summer, but i am sad sad sad that the school year is ending. babycake’s “3s” teachers had the great idea to have a “messy day” and do all the fun fabulous messy things we all kinda shy away from – and do them outside.
fingerpainting (babycakes is writing her name):
yes, there’s paint in her ponytail and up to her elbows:
mud pies (so lovely!):
have a look at this – this started out as a plain white sheet hanging from the swingset, and the kids sprayed it with colored water – isn’t it gorgeous?!
AND there was a whole lot more – the good news is that i’m going back tomorrow to help with the “4s”, so hopefully i’ll get the shots i missed. SO much fun!!
in other news, i planted perennials earlier this afternoon. i’ve been out to check them twice. i’m sad to report back that nothing has grown or blossomed in the past 90 minutes.
