3 & 4 year olds!

Ok, so most of you know how much I love young children, HINT: I want to be an elementary teacher! Well, I have been helping out with the 3 & 4 year old class at church, and it has been a blast. Well, now I get to come up with the lesson plans each week & I am so excited! I have so many great ideas just spilling out of my head. I want to do them all the first Sunday, but I realize I have to spread them out over time. I went to Lifeway today on my lunch break and found the BEST book ever- The Humongous Book of Preschool Ideas 2. It is full of FUN & CREATIVE ideas. This book includes everything- bible experiences, crafts, games, songs, snacks, and prayers! I can't wait till this Sunday! Does anybody have any great ideas or resources, or crafts? I am open for any suggestions!

you would think after raising 3 preschool kiddos I would have some cool ideas. Ummmm, play-do??

I did see one thing I want to try...buy a ton of pinto beans and a large container and let them dig for treasure...or small plastic animals or whatever. Not sure how to incorporate this into a church setting, though! Love you and miss you!
