Pizza Day!

Today, at school, we finished up our community helpers unit by having a pizza day.  The kids had a blast.  My camera battery died so I only have a few pictures.

I read them the cutest book called Hi! Pizza Man.  Then we sorted different pizza toppings.


After that, we played a game.  The children had to throw pepperoni’s (red poker chips) into a triangle shaped box.  The kids pretended to work in a pizza shop and take orders and make pizzas.  They loved it!

They also made their own personal pan pizza.  I had to practically beg the owner to give me 10 boxes for my class.  Mr. “Don’t Tell My Boss I Gave You These” wasn’t too happy with me…but I got them. The kids created pizzas with crust, tomato sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni, and green peppers.   They turned out so cute!




Then we ended the day with real pizza for lunch.  Such a great pizza day!

Happy Fall Craft Project

Emily brought this home from her preschool the other day and I loved it.  I have it hanging up on our fridge but it would also make really cute cards or a Fall picture book to practice colors.  Here’s how to make it.

  • Dip your child’s thumb in brown paint to make the acorn.  The side of the thumb to make the top of it.
  • Paint their hand in red to make the apple. Have them make a fist and then using the side of each fist stamp the paper twice.
  • Have them make a fist again and this time paint the front of the fist (with the knuckles) to make the pumpkin.
  • Finally, paint their entire hand yellow to make the leaf.

After the paint drys you can go back through and do some touch ups.

Popcorn Cones

Last year our family started having a game night one week and a movie night one week.  When it’s movie night the girls get their sleeping bags and I pop some popcorn.  We made some popcorn cones (that’s what we call them) out of old scrapbook paper.  The girls love them and when they get old you get to make new ones.
