 IT'S THAT TIME!!!
THE TIME OF YEAR --
The time for expressing our LUV and our LOVE. 
Let's walk through this creative demonstration
and expression of appreciation. 
Two pipe cleaners. 
Yarn. 
Time. Energy.
Kindergarten LUV!!!

            Time, energy + LUV
Lots of fine motor exercise in the process.
As mentor-Mimi would say, "DYOT!!!!"
"Do your own thing!!!"

Then you just keep going from there.
Twist and wind. Weave and bend some more. 
Keep going..........
VOILA!!!!!!!!!!!!

These gifts of appreciation were created in Caitlin's kindergarten class on the occasion of my recent author/illustrator, music-lady to their elementary school here in southern Florida.

Their "dream-catchers" would be perfect for a celebration of all things Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and I originally shared about keeping his dream alive in this post...
which ended up turning into its own linkie of ideas -- all things MLK. Go back to the earlier article for oodles of MLK ideas! 



In the spirit of tutorials and helping to inspire through specific direction I asked Caitlin for some of her photos of the 'process' involved in the gift. Special thinks for sending them my way! No wonder everyone's smiling at your blog!

They have been captured forever in the fundraising eBook for the American Heart Association created by a group of over 70 international blogging buddies. I spoke at length in this earlier article on how to get your copy.




They've also been entered into a happy Valentine's Blog Hop of fun
inspiration + ideas for you to follow up with your loved ones. ENJOY!!!!



****Next year, in the future, we have opened a cyber super-store, as an outreach of our collaborative blog, PreK+K Sharing. You can shop in your jammies and find great resources from our authors and friends under one big polka-dotted umbrella at our 


EARLY EDUCATION EMPORIUM!! 
Why, yes. 
We need store-keepers to open their own shops! 
Come learn more!
