Preschool Bulletin Boards
The room we use for our Wednesday night 3 year old class is also a Mother's Day Out class. The Bible class teacher usually has one bulletin board, but I asked if I could do all of them for the summer. This first quarter we are teaching Genesis, so these can also be used to review God's Creation.
