Chocolate anyone?

We used chocolate to paint our hot cocoa mugs.

I made chocolate play dough- no, preferably not edible, although not toxic.

We had a cup of “hot cocoa” playdough and searched for marshmallows (white beads).

This was Bryson’s technique (below)-  smooth and methodical.

Dustin was more search in, dig out!

Next was our math assignment:

Counting marshmallows!  yes, they ate them for snack when we were done.

Each child (Bryson & Dustin) counted marshmallows in their cup then added them together.

Chocolate markers smell much better up the nose don’t ya think?

Overall, I think the boys *loved* their chocolate theme!

I love it when last minute ideas ended up being the best lessons!  This just happened to fall into place.

Playing with preschoolers is the best!
