What you will need: candles, watercolors, and paper (cardstock or watercolor paper is best). I love the little floating candles. They are so easy to grip.

Who is the Special Helper today?
Prepare by writing the name of the special helper on a card. Slowly reveal the special helper by brushing paint over each letter, one by one. Have the children guess who it is with just a few letters revealed!
MYSTERY CVC WORD
What is our word today?
Prepare the card by writing the word with a candle.
Slowly reveal each letter, having the children sound it out.
Where are we going today?
Prepare by writing the place you will visit on a card.
Slowly reveal where you are going with watercolor paint.
