12. 12. All of the activities that are in my slide show are some of the activities I do in my class. All of my supplies that I used, are supplies majority of child care centers have on hand. I spent no money on them and very little time making what I needed. They are very easy to make and also can help as a transition activity during the day because they are easy to pick up .
