In our school, the kids are getting ready for Independence Day by making a few kid-friendly fireworks. Our Pre-K Summer Camp kids started by drawing the fireworks with a white crayon, then traced with glue and sprinkled with glitter.
Our younger 3 year old class dipped Koosh Balls in paint and printed fireworks. They added a little glitter to make it sparkle!
I'm heading to the beach soon where we'll see some fireworks of our own. Happy 4th of July!
I have been teaching early childhood for about 20 years. I love what I do---it's the best job in the world!!! Where else can you go to work each day and do art, play games, have snack and get hugs regularly AND get paid for it?! I love to share ideas with other teachers and see what they are doing in their classrooms. Teaching is the best profession---we love to share!
