The Sharing Can, Part 1

Sharing can with Matty

The Sharing Can is one of my favorite parts of having a preschooler.

At University Covenant Nursery School, kids take turns taking home the Sharing Can. This is an opaque container (usually a large coffee container) which gets brought home. The parent helps the child select something to put inside, and then they write three clues. During closing circle time the next day, the clues are read one by one, and the other children raise their hands to guess after each clue. The almost complete disconnect between clue and guess that some children have is pretty much the most amusing part of my day.

Matty was extremely excited to have his name chosen last week for the sharing can. After much debate, we finally put in one of his stuffed animals. This comic depicts what happened.
