We participate in a co-op preschool. That means each parent theoretically takes a turn hosting. We were last minute December hosts.
Week 1 we had a field trip for our first class.
Week 2 was our first week of 'real' class hosting.
My pre-preschooler with our Circle Time Board. (I'll post more about our Board soon).

After snack, we did our first activity. We cut out family members and houses out of felt. Each child picked out the members of their household and stuck them on the house. It was really interesting to see how the kids view their families. For example, most of the kids with a baby sibling put the baby with mommy. (The exception being my son, who put the baby with daddy!) We had so much fun with the felt that it inspired my DIY Felt Board!
We finished up our activities with homemade playdough:
We closed with Three Bill Goats Fluff (about a troll who doesn't feel very happy about his home) and our circle time songs.
It took a lot more energy than I had anticipated, but the kids did great and we had so much fun!
