Daycare fun activity scavenger hunt

A really fun adventure we did in daycare was this scavenger hunt. The set up took a little time but was so worth it. My preschoolers had a great time. We did this activity during our pirate themed week, but can be done any day when you need to get outside.
So here's what I did. First I created this map of my neighborhood. We walk around the block this same way quite often. I printed some pictures of google pictures of things we could find on our walk. I started us out at our mailbox which happens to look like a school bus. To the left of our house we always have to past the boat in my neighbors driveway, so that was the next picture I printed out.

Daycare t shirts DIY

I really wanted to have some t-shirts for my daycare children to wear but the prices for having them done professionally was too much for my budget. So I decided to make my own! I had all my children bring in their own white shirt. Some brought it t-shirts, some tank tops. It didn't matter because they were all going to match when I got done with them. We were planning on wearing our shirts for the parade so I wanted them to stand out a lot. We have always used a smiley face to brand my Daycare named Silly School and so that's what I chose for our shirts as well. I purchased some yellow Rit brand fabric dye and used it to the recommended directions. It was very simple to use  Add to water and stir the shirts around and let them sit for a while. After I had some dry yellow shirts I made a simple smiley face template and used black fabrics paint that I found at Michael's to paint the simple design  I made sure to add cardboard inside the shirt so the paint wouldn't leak…
