The First day of school can be quite stressful for a preschooler and making a friend relieves much of the stress. Pair the children up at a table and have them introduce themselves with a hand shake and a "How do you do." Then ask them to tell each other how old they are, their favorite color and their favorite food. Bring the "pair" of children to you and paint one hand of each child (in their favorite color) and press it down onto a piece of construction paper. (do this twice, one for each of the pair). Write at the top " I met a friend today at preschool, her/his name is____________. You can also write "His/Her favorite color is____________. Write their names under their hand prints.
