5.4.3.2.1...Blast off

This month, at work, is dedicated to Space. So Nicole and I were given the ultimate task of making a rocket ship out of cardboard boxes. At first we were dreading it a bit...how were we going to make a space ship out of several different odd shaped boxes? However, after we jumped in we actually had a lot of fun. And I am pretty proud of how it turned out in the end...

We even put stars in the top...so when the kids looked up in the shuttle they saw stars. (that was my idea)
This was also my handy work...
Ok- I have to admit Nicole did most of the exterior decoration with the puffy paint...
Tadaa...Shuttle Wee Care
Then the kids got a hold of it...they obviously did not think Nicole and I decorated it well enough. So they added their own decorations to it as well.







The kids really had a blast playing in our little cardboard shuttle. I am also really impressed with these little guys; they are really learning a lot about space. They know a fact about each planet, a little about constellations, about the sun, etc... These kiddos are pretty bright. And I hope Nicole and I can continue to show these children how much FUN learning can be.

  3. I wish that I had an extremely creative and resourceful teacher like you when I was younger. Imagine how different my life might have been... ;)-
