    I am SOOOO glad I stumbled upon your blog. I'm a pre-K teacher, and you have tons of cool activities on here! I am so grateful that you put up tutorials and free templates! I've already printed off a bunch of stuff to take into work tomorrow, and I'm gonna ask my boss if she minds if I make some toddler stilts for when it's too cold to go outside. (Which seems to be every day) I'm also gonna grab some card board boxes and make some of those circles with slits. I've got a few boys who are dying for some new manipulatives. We've been making chain garland a lot, lol. Thank you again for all the great ideas! I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

    LOVE your coloring pages and paper cities. They have provided much entertainment for my four children ages 11 to 2 over this long Minnesota winter. One complaint. I cannot get this Bird from Paris to a PDF to print it.
