February Friendship Fridays!

This year I decided to do something a bit different during the month of February.  Rather than just having a small "party" on Valentine's Day and allowing the children in my classroom to bake cookies to eat in the afternoon, I decided to focus a bit on friendship throughout the entire month of February!
So we decided to celebrate Friendship Fridays!  Each Friday in the month of February we are baking "friendship cookies" (yes, regular heart shaped sugar cookies) to take to our friends in the other preschool classrooms.  So, today, for the second Friday in a row, we baked cookies!  The children helped to put the cookies on the cookie sheets, put the cookie sheets in the oven and waited for the timer to ring to tell us the cookies were done. 
After the cookies cooled a bit, we put some in small pails.  Each of the children then got to carry a pail to our friends in another classroom to deliver our "friendship cookies".  We had a pail swinging from a hand, swinging from a wheelchair and clutched to a chest in order not to trip and fall! 

Since we have four other preschool classrooms in our building, we plan on doing this each Friday in February so we can deliver "friendship cookies" to each classroom.  

Of course we make enough cookies so each of the children in my classroom can take a cookie home with their family to enjoy! What fun it is to show our friends how much they mean to us!
