I recently received this email:
"I am opening a new pre-school and would appreciate if you could assist me with a simple craft and a good welcome poem to do with my children on the first day at school. I want them to feel special. I would also like to do a handprint with a good saying that will go with the handprint."
1. Make a 'peep tube' from a rolled up poster-size cardboard.
Where is ...(child's name)? (peep at child)
4. Then teach each child to reply: "Here I am, Here I am and How do you do," and they shake hands with you as they say it or sing it.
Some will be shy, so maybe they should all reply together on behalf of the child whose turn it is. We used to do this in our kiddies' Sunday school class at church and after they got over their shyness, the kids loved it. They even took turns being the 'teacher'.
Here are some handprint poems to commemorate this special day:This is the hand
You used to hold
When I was only
__ years old.
Here is my hand
So tiny, so small
to hang somewhere
upon your wall.
