Chairs Theme







Chairs Theme


Talk: Talk about Chairs with the kids. Show pictures if needed. Ask Whether they have a favorite chair for dinner time, reading time or maybe they have one in the room along with a desk. Chairs come in all shapes, sizes, colors and types- some can be hard, some are soft and cozy. Why do we need chairs or places to sit?
