I have to admit I'm really getting into this school thing, even though Maia's just in preschool and even though I always thought I would homeschool/unschool.
First, I had to get her a lunch box, of course. I read this post about safer lunch boxes by Safe Mama and really got into the idea of the bento box option.
So I bought her one of these. The photo's from the laptop lunches website, not a lunch that I packed. I like the idea of a "waste-free lunch" without the individual wrappings on everything. Unfortunately she can't get the thing opened herself. Details, details. Oh well. I may have to reconsider. (Or use it myself!!) Right now the teachers are opening it for her.
Yesterday I printed out a September calendar page and talked with Maia about the days that she'll be goingÂ to preschool.
Not sure how much she got. But she enjoyed putting stickers on the preschool days and using her new b-day crayons to decorate the calendar a bit. We'll hang it in her room and keep track of the days for a while and see how interested she is in it.
And, lastly, I made some fall shirts for the kiddo. A (sweet)heart,Â a school ofÂ fish, and a lucky white elephant. No stencils this time. Just applique.
