I have to share with you a little item I found and fell in love with when I went a looking for Sentos Markers at Michaels last week (By the way they have them in every flavor for a buck).

These little tatoo lovelies were on clearance for a whole dollar and since I was under the influence of a four year boy at the time, I had to snatch them up.
I forgot about them for a few days and then when I pulled them out, of course, my boys were ready for a ‘tat day.’ This is a day when I just give it up to the tattoo gods and let them have at it with the tattoos. We usually limit to about 4 and try to keep them in places that can be covered when we head off to church on Sunday. I don’t really want to freak out the Grannies.
So you have to be pretty careful about placement for them, but check it out!
Aren’t they fun? And let me tell you, the moment they were dry my little guys’ hands came alive!
The cat and the dog were having a conversation. And then they were chasing each other. And then . . . he started singing his abc’s with his hands and finally sat down and read a book (ok he read a book he had memorized) with his hands making all the mouth movements.
So when my 6 year old but them on, I got the idea to work on syllables with him. It was interesting to see him put his own hand under his chin for the syllable and then have his hand mimic it. I tell you what, I am loving these little tattoo guys. If only I could pull it off at school. How much fun would my kinders doing syllable work with tattoos doing the talking or reading a book . . . But alas, not all parents are pro-kid tattoo, but if they were . . .
a kindergarten teacher can always dream!
Now, just so you guys remember, tomorrow is the Blog Swap and Hop Event going on with a bunch of my blogging pals. So although, I won’t be here, I will have a guest blogger (she’s FABULOUS) sitting in for me AND you will want to stop by so you can find out where I’ll be blogging. You know I don’t go anywhere without taking presents, so of course there will be freebies!
And then after heading off to see me, you’ll find guest bloggers at all my pals blogs listed below. It should be fun. So make sure you check in tomorrow.
