Grandparent's Day Preparation

    Happy Fall Y'all!  I just love saying that!  I absolutely loved Grandparent's Day!  It was a lot of work, but so worth it!  Here are some pictures and activities that we did for our special day.
We read Hooray for Grandparent's Day!  This is great book to share the day before because it discusses what happens if you don't have grandparents or they are unable to attend.  We allowed other family members, parents, or someone special to come if a grandparent was unavailable.  We also discussed that if their grandparent was unable to attend, they could either mail them their gifts or give it to them the next time that they visited.

I found this cute little heart at Handprint Art.  We cut the heart with decorative scissors and added their picture.

Totally used this from the Family Fun Math and Literacy by Kim Adsit!  They chose whether they wanted to do a grandma or grandpa.  We had to end up hot glueing the little glasses (pipe cleaners) because they wouldn't stay on with regular glue.  We also mounted these on black construction paper.

We made chocolate chip cookies!

They each took a turn putting in an ingredient.

They went over in small groups to watch the cookies being mixed.
They also each put in a spoonful of the chocolate chips because everyone wanted to put in the chocolate chips! :)

This class loves to cook!  Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures of the cookies on the tray or the cooked cookies.  I also did not get a picture of the instructions for making the cookies.  The batteries on my camera died, and we had grandparents start to come in, so it just didn't happen.  I'll post pictures of our story time and their grandparents tomorrow!
