Today's morning activity was Cardboard Toy shop, where I make toys with the kids out of recycled cardboard and duct tape. School ends next week, and for their "spirit week" one day is Crazy Sock Day. And this year, ladies and gentlemen, Zephyr and Lyric will be the CROWN PRINCES OF CRAZY SOCK DAY. So today, we'll be making them crowns.
"Crenellations" are the little projections at the top of a castle. Props to my Kindergarten teacher Darlene Freeman for teaching me that.
