eggs and crosses


In order to have our room decorated for Easter we made paper Easter eggs this week.   I cut out black ovals and the children glued on small pieces of paper they had cut earlier in the year when they were practicing their cutting skills!  I really like how all the colors pop off the black background!  This is a project I will do every year I like it so much!  After the glue dried I put each child’s name on the back with glitter and hung them from the ceiling – I really like how they look hanging up and have gotten several compliments!

Another project we did this week was tissue paper crosses.  I die cut crosses out of white construction paper and the children glued tissue paper squares to them.  They turned out beautifully and almost look like stained glass (although if I’d had contact paper – it would have been even more awesome)!  I also hung these from the ceiling to get the most impact out of them (and becasue our walls are still covered with art from our bug unit).  Our room looks very Spring-like! 🙂

About deepbluetide

I am a pre-kindergarten teacher at a private christian school. I work mornings with 4 year olds (most of whom enter my class in July still being 3 - they're babies!) and then in the afternoon work "daycare" - which is basically my own class combined with 5 year old children. One things for sure - it's never dull! I had no idea growing up I would be teaching pre-k today! It took me totally off guard - but in the end I wouldn't change a thing! I have worked with children whose age range is 6 weeks through 12 years. In the end I have decided that my current age group is my favorite! And in case you were wondering - all names mentioned are changed to protect the identities of those involved. Enjoy!
