We just returned from our last trek of the summer. It doesn't seem possible, but school starts next week! We stopped off at The Paper Source in Berkeley where I found the cutest Folkmanis hedgehog puppet.
She'll be a wonderful addition to my January bag of tricks. She looks to me like she just stepped out of Jan Brett's The Hat or The Mitten. Hmmmm.........maybe I need to get busy and knit Hedgie her own little "hat."
My next find was at "love at first bite," a Cupcakery we patronize whenever we're in town.
In addition to a Lemon Pistachio cupcake, I picked up the cutest game. I'm planning to add it to my free choice cupboard. I think the spatula spinner on the "cake stand" is so cute! Don't you?
I've been busy creating activities for my new TpT store. It's so much fun! I was devastated when I read that Fran Kramer from Kindergarten Crayons is leaving kindergarten. I learned so much from her and now that she's no longer in K I decided I'll have to create my own activities. The first one is an "I have...Who has...?" game to go along with Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Eric Carle. It's a freebie and you can grab it here. I have...Who has...? Brown Bear Edition.
We're finishing up a beginning-of-the-year packet with activities that connect to Eric Carle's Brown Bear book. We hope to get it on TpT no later than Thursday. I hope you'll check it out!
