Friday has turned into Make It/Take It day at preschool, which I was instantly excited about. That morning, parents can come in and take advantage of the class’s vast stores of creative goodness to make activities, picture schedules, and whatever else under the direction of our resident experts – our really cool teachers. We make them and take them home. Free stuff! However, nothing I’ve described would cost more in materials than the change you probably could find in your car.
I’m definitely going to do something on Friday that I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. For lack of knowing what the technical term is, I’ll call them shoebox and folder games. This is as dirt cheap as it gets for home learning activities, but it’s just as effective – if not more so – than most of the stuff out there you pay beaucoups of money for.
Not surprisingly, their names come from the primary materials involved in making each: shoeboxes and manila folders.
