Gage is involved in a fantastic playgroup. He and six other 3 to 4 year olds get together once a week for three hours at one of the mommy's houses. When it's your turn to host, you have a theme, a letter of the alphabet to teach, a number, and a color. Today we had it at our house and our theme was pumpkins and our color was orange (our letter P). I found these totes at Hobbey Lobbey half price last week (so around $1.50) and we made some trick or treat bags with them. I put their names and the pumpkins on the front before they came and they got to use paint and stencils to decorate the back. We also pasted faces on our giant paper pumpkins to turn them in to jack-o-lanterns (but I forgot to take a picture). It's fun and exhausting all at the same time. But, Gage loves it (just like his brother before him did) and I love that he is with his friends having fun and learning. Plus, the three hours with Mallory alone is quite nice too!
