Valentine's Day Crafts and Goodies

I am completely exhausted from all the Valentine festivities this past week.   But it was so much fun!  Here's a few photos from my preschool class and from home.   Off to Circus Sarasota today!

Preschool Classroom

I just took a teaching job at my daughter's preschool.  I'm in charge of a classroom of 3 year-olds and I've been working non-stop on the classroom and activities to do with the kids.  I can't seem to ever finish as I'm constantly coming up with new ideas I want to implement.  I also haven't been able to blog as much and I'm missing it!
I've been in the class for 3 weeks so far.  My first week we learned about Dinosaurs and the kids made a dinosaur habitat with a volcano and dinosaurs made from shapes.  

Here's a few pics of my room (well so far anyway). I've got lots more to do!

Making Valentines

Today was craft central at our house.   Valentine week has officially started and I'm up to my ears in glitter and hearts.  Let's see . . . my daughter's class Valentines to make, my son's class valentines to make, and my preschool class valentines to make.  And did I mention I'm Room Mom for my son's class?  So I'll be throwing  his class party this week as well as my own classroom's party.  But really I do love doing it all.   My kids and I are making chocolate lollipops later this week and I'll post those photos.  They're super cute!   Here's what we made today.

Seahorse Pillows

Just picked these up at Marshalls.  SO fun and beachy!   I'm trying diligently to refrain from buying things for the new house until we actually move - but it's pure torture.
