This week, the children explored making polk-a-dots with straws.

Red, yellow, and blue paint was set out along with a straw in each paint.

The children dipped the end of the straws into the paint.

Then pressed the painted end of the straw on the paper.

New colors were added to the page as desired.

The amount of paint that was on the end of the straw determined how solid the polk-a-dots would be.

A simple process that the children enjoyed.

I just love Polk-A-Dots!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
