    Sometimes at Paiges Playgroup they have themed days, like last week was a pirate day and the kids did maps and pirate masks, and the playdoug had 'treasure' in it. This week the theme was dinosuars and the kids all had tails to wear and they set the room up like a jungle.

    I could pm you with a list of great books by Jane Bull and Nellie Shepherd. Nellie Shepherds book are all art themed, ie amimal art, puppet art etc and Jane Bull's books are for gardening, cooking, craft, rainy day and sunny day etc.

    i remember at kindy we had letter days

    we had to come dressed as something beginning with that letter and bring something in.

    example, i remember P day, i came as a photographer and bought in a pumpkin lmao

    but it was fun to see what the others did

    Next week we are getting a table and putting 4 blobs of shaving foam onto each side of the table and adding 2 different coloured paints to it. The kids can then get there hands into it and mix it all up over the table. It creates a nice film over the table and the kids can draw pictures or whatever in it. Just have to add a few drops of water to the mixture on the table every once in a while to prevent it drying out. A great way for kids to practice their names or whatever without going thru endless paper.

    love
