Pre-K Crafts for Old Orchard K1 class

One of things I love about Sean's new school is...  Miss Katie!  She is so patient and really would love parent participation.  One thing I really wanted to be able to participate in is Sean's Halloween Party.  But because I drove to the Pumpkin Patch last week, I had to give up volunteering Wednesday.
