Day 20: Maisy Goes to Preschool

This year was Charlie's first year of preschool, so we commemorated the occasion by reading, Maisy Goes to Preschool. I thought I'd include what we did to celebrate here since it goes along perfectly with our series!

We LOVE the Maisy books and this one was no exception. It's a great introduction for your kids as to what their expectations might be and we love to follow the story wherever she goes. Check out another favorite, Maisy Cleans Up.

In honor of this first year of preschool, I put together a pencil cake.

I'm sure you've seen a few different versions of this pencil cake
Our family LOVES cookie dough though, so I thought I'd make it a cookie cake instead!

Pencil Cookie Cake

 Your favorite cookie dough recipe
1 thin strip of tin foil (for the metal band)
1 jar of white frosting
Food coloring
7 chocolate chips
Mix dough up and spread on a cookie sheet. Bake until cooked through. Cut corners so that you have a "fat" pencil shape. {My boys were thrilled to eat the corners!} Then, frost the eraser {pink}, tip {white} and main body {yellow} last. Place a few chocolate chips for the point and lay tin foil between eraser and main body.


Do you have a special book or tradition that you do to celebrate the start of the school year?
