What I did for Spring Break

Obviously I didn't do much blogging over the break, like I wanted. Nor did I add things to my TpT / TN stores. But I did something semi related to teaching...I made a TON of teacher buckets, specifically the popular caddies.

Here are a few sets that I made

















Can't you just picture all the great classroom themes/decor????

We also did the usual Spring Break things...and my daughter spent a lot of time pretending! Check out a few pictures. She was a superhero...using some of my clothes as I cleaned out my closet:



She was a teacher to her best buddy, "baby Charlie"...reading her favorite book to her Brown Bear





We spring cleaned the outside toys, what better way than to do it while playing!



We were backyard explorers!


She had me draw her a castle on this box....she was the prince, I was a princess, and the mouse was a friendly dragon! 


We went to a strawberry patch...she loved picking them, but doesn't like to eat them.








And finally the Easter Egg Hunts!

Daycare Egg Hunt:


Small morning Egg Hunt...love the La La Loopsy School Bus:



 Mega Family Egg Hunt!






One of the eggs had a harmonica in it....she loved it!!!


 Too much fun!

I'm glad you had a nice spring break. Your daughter looks adorable! My "little" girl just turned 22!!! Enjoy your children now because they really do grow up too fast. I love the caddies you decorated. You have such a great variety of colors. You've inspired me to give this a try.
Thanks for sharing your inspiring ideas!

Oh my goodness! I love the buckets! Especially the zebra ribbon one! Do you sell these? How old is your little girl? I have a 3 year old boy.

I see my buckets on there! Yay! Can't wait for them to arrive and they will go PERFECT for my beach theme!
(In case anyone is wondering, mine are the teal ones with the tan stripes and letters-perfect for beach theme!) They look fabulous and will be used with love!

P.S. Your daughter is a doll!

I am loving those buckets!

I haven't been by your blog in a long time and I forgot how much I love it. I am sorry for being a bad follower...there are just so many wonderful blogs out there and not enough time in the day to blog stalk. =)

I would be honored if you hopped over and checked out my blog. =)
