Twelve Preschoolers and a Lot of Green Paint and Glue

It was Q-ster’s turn to bring the snack to preschool today, which meant that it was also my opportunity to help in the classroom. The teachers had arranged a craft making a witch’s face by painting a paper plate with fat brushes and adding cut-outs for hat, eyes, nose, and mouth. One teacher took half the kids and I got the other half, and we all survived it. Whew!

The kids were happy, all the drippy green faces were done, and I got to meet the rest of Q-ster’s classmates. His teachers say he’s doing well, and I was happy that he ran over to hug me several times during class.

No pictures, unfortunately, because I was really concentrating on being a good helper and completely forgot. Someday, I’ll get better at this. In the meantime, pictures of the preschool pumpkin outing!

Now please guess what he and his friend are pretending with the pumpkins. It shouldn’t take you more than one guess.

Pumpkin light sabers? Now that's a new one for me. I guess anything can become a prop in a pinch, though.

How funny! Everything is a light saber, huh? :)

Light sabers come in all shapes and colors, of course.

Glad you survived the classroom. I think it is stressful, doing that!

Yes, you would all be right to say 'pumpkin sabers.'
