When I first started thinking about this last week, it was overwhelming. Now I think I will go the extra mile by keeping it simple. I'm going to just look at creative art projects that are hands-on and three-dimensional. Plain old paper can be used during table activities like coloring. I want to make actual crafts more interesting. I'm just going to find what awesome unique art projects I can find and start creating folders. Then, I will go back and add: songs with lyrics and titles and authors of related books. So, a theme will have to have a book, song, and art project. I will add other things into our learning experiences, but not necessarily "theme based". I'm not a teacher, but I can teach children a lot without each week entirely being surrounded by a specific theme. Good luck to anyone else who is creating a theme from scratch. A childcare provider's creativity is well worth a unique curriculum!
