It was Colonial Day for all the 1st graders and I was eager to help out Preston's class. I remember this special day when Kaitlyn was in 1st grade and I knew Preston would have a blast as well. As Preston went to the other classrooms for his rotations, I stayed in his class and made a ton of these little arms for the corn husk dolls.
I did manage to sneak away at one point to watch Preston make his totem pole.
He made lots of really cool things all while learning some history. He weaved a placemat, made symbols on a "buffalo hide", decorated a totem pole, made God's eye (the craft sticks and yarn), and made a corn husk doll. Preston also learned how to make butter. So much fun!
I just love seeing that smile!!!
It is days like this when I love being a mommy.
