First Week of Preschool - Messy Play and Fun!

I survived the first week of preschool and it was lots of fun for me and the cute kiddos in my class. I thought I'd share a few photos of the messy fun and play that went on in my classroom last week.

Our Theme - School is FUN!

We played with water beads
Everyone was amazed at how much they grew over time.
This activity has been such a HUGE HIT!
The kids beg me to open our sensory table first thing in the morning.

The kids had a great time exploring shaving cream,

painting on the easel

and doing lots of finger painting.

My class loves play dough.
They really like the sweet fruity scented play dough.

We made marble paint bees for our outside wall display.
I used photos of the children as the bees faces
& they turned out so cute.
I also cut hexagon shapes and let the kids each decorate one.
Then I used them all to make a large honeycomb.

There was lots of dress-up play, block building, 
story time and playground fun.
The kids sure do know how to have fun on the playground.
Between the sand, water, slides and trikes
they are busy, busy, busy.

What a great week.
I can't wait to share our current week with you -
Theme - I Am Special!
Check back next Wednesday for a peek at what we did.

  2. All of these sensory activities are so much fun. I would have to say my preschool students like washing foods the best. I guess you can say that's a clean messy activity, LOL. They love learning about garden vegetables and cleaning them in the sensory table. http://www.brennaphillips.com/washing-garden-foods-in-preschool

  7. What a wonderful post and so many great resources on your blog. I am so excited to explore it more. Quick question, where did you buy the water beads? I found some on Amazon, but they looked to be packaged more toward flower arrangemetns so I was not sure if they would be the same non-toxic kid-friendly ones that I have been reading about. Thanks!

  11. The vibrant colors of the water beads make them look more attractive to kids. It makes them more fun to play with.
