One preschool tradition that I will surely not miss is "Fun Day". It's a day that is put on entirely by the parents (and thankfully I have had great groups of moms and dads to work with each year) and the kids really do love it. It's a lot of work and a bit chaotic, as we get five classrooms rotating through our space in a two hour period. It's a difficult balance to have enough, but not too much, to keep the littles busy for the 20 minutes.
3 out of the 4 years, I have been in the craft room but this year we were across the hall. It was a "Parade of Holidays" theme this time around, and our parents chose Earth Day (not a holiday really, but oh well). We focused on recycling and had the kids plant little chia like pets. I played a very small role this year and was on hand to volunteer for set-up, clean-up and the day itself. No planning for me, thank you very much.
Intrigued and excited

It really was a fun Fun Day!
