A Letter to My Son's Preschool Teacher

To my son’s first classroom teacher,

I saw you waiting for my child.

Every day you knew he was coming. And every day my preschooler jumped out the back seat ready for you as well.

I saw you welcome his learning, his humor, his self; allowing him keep his tower up longer and longer each day…

I saw everything you did this year and I want to say thank you.

It didn’t go unnoticed.

Rethink Your Playdough

Ah, Playdough.

We've all been here, right?

Mixed colors being stuffed back into containers, texture hardening because it was left out from the night before, and little fingers forcing endless amounts of Playdough into the cracks of our kitchen table. 

"Do we really want to take out the Playdough again?" 

Consider this.

What is a childhood without Playdough?

In my opinion, it is the foundation of every young blooming mind. I am not here begging you to mix your colors. To each their own on that. But what I am asking you to do is to break out your playdough and consider integrating some every day items to the mix.

Perhaps playdough needs a makeover.

Here's how to use it to boost creativity.
