Rainbow Hats and Cowbells

Today, we did lots of socializing, with Preschool Adventures at North Columbus Library in the morning, and a playdate with our buddy, Vivian, in the afternoon.  We managed to get some homeschooling done in the interim, with plenty of reading on cows, in preparation for our field trip tomorrow to The River Center to see Click, Clack, Moo!  Here are some photos from today:

Here's Maggie, working on her St. Patrick's Day rainbow hat.  (Coloring rainbows is a great activity for teaching them to color within the lines!)
So cute!
The materials for our 'Cow Door Hanger' ...
Adding the eyes to our cow ...
All done!
She was so proud to hang it on her door!
Green jell-o + green-colored cool whip = a delicious St. Patty's-themed snack!
YUM!
