Purple Cake Day!

 Purple Cake Day is this week so we're in a whirl of purple at the school. Setting up art projects and centers within a theme is always a fun thing. You can make old things seem knew simply by switching up the colors or materials. 
Grape, vanilla and lavender scented play dough is perfect for cake making.
 A puppet theater becomes a cake stand. 
The water table is filled with collage materials in purple and makes for a great mess!
We've been mixing purple and painting with purple. Our flags of hope are decorating the classrooms and the children are learning about Nepal.
