the life of a preschool mom

Not only am I a preschool mom, but I am the room mom. So I have been doing lots of arts and crafts lately in celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week and Brody was Star of the Week. Here are some of the projects I worked on!

I saw an idea for this jar at Valentine's Day on a blog (I can't remember where I saw it so if you read this tell me so I can give you credit). I decided to change it up and use stars and decorate it. Each kid in the class wrote on two stars telling what their favorite things about the teacher is and then I decorated the jar. I put a tag on the jar telling the teacher to keep it on her desk and whenever she needs a smile she can read a few!

I made this card for the teachers and inside is a collage of pictures like the one below. Some are holding signs that say "We appreciate you," "Thank you," and "You are the best." I also labeled all the kids names on them.

Lastly, the poster below was for Brody being Star of the Week. I love how it turned out. I was up all night doing it, which is so funny because I know this is just the beginning, he's only in preschool. We have lots of years left of this kind of stuff.
