This morning, Anne and I made some little vases for her new preschool teachers. We go to "Back-to-School Night" tonight to meet everyone. She'll be going to preschool on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings starting next week.
- glass jar (we used a baby food jar)
- card stock trimmed to correct "label" size
- permanent fine-tip pen
- watercolors and paintbrush
- ribbon (optional)
- flowers from the garden
Step One: Write a message and draw some pictures on the label. Anne is just beginning to write, so I wrote in pencil, "I am glad you are my teacher," and she traced it with the pen.
Step Two: Watercolor over the message. Allow to dry completely.
Step Three: Glue label to jar and tie on ribbon.
Step Four: Collect flowers/herbs from the garden and arrange in jar.
Step Five: Deliver to your new teacher.
