Help Young Ones Feel Closer to Home
Grade Level(s): Preschool, K
Submitted by: Linette, Toddlers - Preschool - PreK

I am a Director for a childcare facility and I have talked to my staff about collecting family photos from all of the children. These photos will be contact papered to a cardboard box. These boxes will be our family boxes to remind children of their families when they feel sad or lonely. Our NAEYC coordinator shared this idea with me and I think that children would really love to feel close to their families when they are in a new environment with new faces... this will help them feel less alone for the first few weeks of school. It's also a great "naptime" box for kids who have naptime anxiety. Hope this helps someone out there!
