The 4-year-olds' Circus

We just finished hosting another week of preschool at our house. Where we learned all about the circus.
Complete with a big top tent over the table.
On the last day the kids got to pretend to be in a circus. I had these pictures taped around the room and at each station they got to perform a different circus "act": jumping through a "flaming" hula-hoop, walking a tightrope of tape, juggling scarves, making human letters (below), and tying balloons. It was great fun. And feel free to comment on my remarkable Crayola coloring skills. (My hand ached when I was finished!) And if you likey, visit freecoloring.org.
And although I did not come up with many of the ideas on my own, I'm still very proud of myself for successfully replicating them. Now I only have 3 more turns to go.
Below is a video of the juggling act. It doesn't take much to entertain six 4-year-olds.

That seriously sounds like so much fun- for you and the kids! I'm glad you write about this stuff so I can poach your ideas later. It's all so cute!

Oh fun - your circus so totally looks like it rocked! I love the *human letters* - looks like you are already a pro! Four years old is so much fun! Keep us updated on your teaching adventures - [well, and on the rest of your life too, of course. But that goes without saying, right?]

Those pictures were colored so nicely I thought you printed them off that way. You probably always won the award in school for best colorer.

Maybe you should start your own preschool - I'd send my kids to you. =)
