As promised, I'm updating you on the treasure hunt/chest project from Jayla's Pre-K class. Well, she didn't win but came in 2nd with points.
I'm a little disappointed that she didn't win the treasure chest contest. Not because I thought hers looked great. But because she lost to a child who BOUGHT an actual chest. The directions on the assignment actually said to make and decorate a treasure chest. So, that's what we did. Again, the child who won, bought an unfinished chest, like the kind you'd find at Michaels or something, painted it pink, and glued a few jewels on it. Shoot, I could've done that!!! But I didn't because I was showing my daughter how to follow directions, by doing what her teachers instructed. as well as how to be creative.
ANYWAY, that's alright. It was a fun project for us to do together and Jayla really enjoyed it. And isn't that all that matters?
Here's my little pirate. Have a great weekend!!!
