I got to go to preschool last Friday to be snack helper for Amelia's class, and in celebration of spring break, it was beach party day. All the kids wore beach appropriate clothing (with winter coats and snow boots outside, of course, since it was only in the twenties). Amelia's hawaiian dress from last summer still fit her, and so did her sandals, surprisingly. We accessorized with lots of leis. The art area had glue and multicolored sand, so Amelia and I made a few sand pictures.
Then we did the limbo (the 4 year old way) and played beach volleyball in large motor.
We brought whole wheat mini bagels with blue tinted cream cheese and mini goldfish for snacktime, so that the kids could make their own little oceans. It was really cute, but 4 and 5 year olds are NOT very good at spreading cream cheese, so it took a while. Amelia likes to be snack helper so that she can make sure she gets to sit by her best friend Lexi.
