Simple Lesson

It is not easy coming up with things for the BabyKid Classes. It has to be something semi-educational and nearly free. Since I have 10 classes with 12 kids each whatever I do has to be done for 120 kids. So this week we did leaf rubbings. I made 120 copies of blank pages with a border that said "leaves" all around. Then I collected a bunch of leaves and flattened and dried them in books. Then I bought wax crayons and picked out all the autumn colors. Most of the moms use oil pastels. I think they are crazy. Two year olds should not be using messy art materials like that, when wax crayons are so much easier. Then I showed them how to do leaf rubbings and sat back and watched. I love watching how intense these little one's get while trying to do something we adults do without thinking. I was also amazed at how the mom's seemed to think these leaf rubbings were something brilliant. Did they not do this as kids? Or maybe I should just go with the flow and consider it a stroke of brilliance and that I am a genius.
