Don’t forget about the kid in all of us!

brown paper bag hat

I often forget that there is a kid in all of us.  My son’s kindergarten teacher asked for parent volunteers to fold brown paper bags into hats for the kindergarteners to paint and decorate for Easter hats.  I was the only parent to volunteer so I told the teacher I would bring the brown paper bags to school with me and ask some of my students to help me.  The students I asked were more than willing to help.  We had a blast in my office trying to fold brown paper bags into hats.  I forgot there is a kid inside all of us.  My students were laughing and taking selfies.  It was a great way to take a break away from the classroom and see the students in a different light.

  1. What a great idea! I have been using ‘elementary’ level projects in some of my courses that require creativity. This helps to break up course content and encourage their minds to break outside of the box.
