This is a must for a kindergarten and truly loved not only in our play school but also in our own home.
Here are a few of our favorite things:
Included but not pictured are an ice pack (we use a red velour one) and a red washcloth.
See a theme here?
Red is perfect for bumps and scrapes, bloody noses and even more serious injuries.
You can cover them easily and the red won't show the blood.
This may sounds a little gruesome, but it has a calming affect on children and caregivers.
As caregivers you certainly want to see where the blood is coming from and how much but this lets you do that without scaring the hurt child and the onlooking class children.

All Winter musts for us.

Today was sunny but still cold, we had a great day at school. The children played in the sandbox and got very cold and wet so we let all our jackets and rainpants dry in the sun while we soaked our feet in warm lavender foot baths. Delightful day in the sun.
Oh yea, and baby naps!
