We often get some great ideas from parents and when we do, we love to share!
Well, you all know that bringing an oversized toy to daycare is not really the best idea but some children just find it so hard to part with a particular toy for the day because they are attached. One Mom came up with the perfect solution! Take a picture of your child with the object and let him bring the picture to school! There was a little guy in my room one day who just clung on to his picture with the biggest smile and asked if he could show his friends and talk about it at circle time. It turned out it was a shot of him sitting on a huge stuffed shark that he had received as a gift. It was too cute as the thing was bigger than he was! :>) Bravo Mom! You came up with a great solution! The stuffed animal didn’t cause chaos at school and you made your child very happy.
