F is for Fish.

My mother-in-law teaches a preschool to sixteen children during the week. Every week she introduces a new letter to them. All week they read stories about things that start with that letter. They also color pictures of things that start with that letter to help them recognize and associate the letter with words.

Last week, it was letter "F" week. I decided to make the kids some fish cupcakes to help them remember the letter f. I got this idea from Pinterest {of course} and it worked out really well. If I were to make these again, I would get a bigger bag of m&m's because I ran out of red ones. As you can tell because my fish only have one lip and the ONLY red fish is majorly lacking fins. Also, if I had more m&m's all of the fish could have had more fins.

{The kids absolutely LOVED them!}

I'm so grateful for the experience I have to spend time with these little darlings. It is so interesting to see how the mind of a child develops. I learn new things every day as I work side-by-side with these kids.
