If you think THIS is a reindeer...

Then you must have the insightful and artistic mind of a pre-school teacher.

All Jason and I can see if a piece of Christmas poop. But it has Ollie's handprints for the poop's antlers, so we have to keep this piece of crap wonderful artwork. Sometimes I think those pre-school teachers are laughing at us. Really hard. And not just on the inside.

Appropriate caveat added here: Of course I cherish my child's artwork and wouldn't trade it for the world.
Now quit thinking I'm a bad mother and you can laugh with me.

Do you get good artwork home from pre-school/ mother's morning out? Aside from the obvious Mother's Day handprints and Thanksgiving Indian feather hat (that has a name doesn't it?)?
Let me know your favorites in the comments.
Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

I just thought it was the traditional Christmas peanut ;-D

indian feather hat = headdress (of course, that may be 2 words.) and i'm not sentimental. i don't save every piece of art or page that comes home. i have enough clutter. instead, i take a picture. it's digitally saved forevah.

Hilarious! Taylor doesn't go to pre-school or anything yet, so no opportunities for such artwork, but I'm sure it won't be long.
And to answer your question/comment from our blog, no you can't really see great from the front row...therefore, we were seat hoppers. We never even sat in our assigned seats.

Ha! Too funny! It's Mr. Hanky the Christmas poop with antlers!

Obviously, you are not familiar with the 10th reindeer, Pooper!

Maybe it's a footprint? To go with the handprint antlers? Have a great Christmas!

Marky has this exact Mr. Hanky-looking thing on a placemat. I think the body is a shoe-print. No- the art is almost always bad, but since they put their hands on them they know we will keep them.

I think my favorite has to be the white dye cut star that they gave Tristan to color. Yeah, he colored about a third of it, and I have some partly scribbled on star on my tree. Real creative, right???

no, the preschool teachers are NOT laughing at you. well. maybe we are. :) i do know we have a tendency to look at craft ideas and say "hey, that's covered with glitter/unrecognizable but has handprints/stupid but uses the kid's picture/pointless but fingerpainted...the parents will HATE it. let's do it!"
