Stone Soup

I’m taking a break before I go finish my preparation for preschool in the morning.  For those of you who might not know about this, I am teaching a weekly “transitional” preschool in my home for 2 and 3 year olds.  We will be having class from October to May.  Annalise loves having her little friends over, and she is REALLY excited about tomorrow.  We are going to read the classic story called Stone Soup.  I took the kids out in the yard this morning, each with a paper bag, and the instructions to go find a rock for our soup.  They enjoyed taking a look at the rocks in our front ditch and finally each settled on some of the biggest rocks they could find.  I found a smaller one, and then we put them in a pot to boil for a couple hours to get them clean.  We prepped by chopping up a variety of veggies and making some chicken broth.  I think it will be a fun time!  We will also be making turkey headbands and turkey prints with paint.  Lots of messy fun!

Back to work…
