Last Thursday for the after school art program we got busy folding to make some colourful origami frogs! We worked together on the folds and everyone decorated and designed their own frog!
To fold an origami frog you will need: a square piece of paper of assorted colours, crayons or markers, and a glue stick. We added paper tongues and curled them up as well!
if you would like to fold your own follow the instructions here.
Last Thursday we worked on creating primary colour sailboats! All the details were different and personalized when mixing the primary colours.
To make your own sailboat you will need: watercolour paper (90 lbs), a dark crayon or permanent marker, tempera paint or watercolour paint using only Red, Blue and Yellow, small sized brushes, tape, and a board to work on top of.
1. To start, the group used a dark colour crayon to draw the sailboat and background
2. Then red, blue, and yellow were used to paint the pictures
3. Some personal touches were added
4. Finally the tape was removed once the paintings were dry
This past Thursday, the After School Program worked on paper bag owls. It was a simple and fun project!
If you would like to make one of your own you will need: paper bags, construction paper, scissors, and glue.

We have started our summer programming for the little guys and today was our first day of Mini Masters. We had so much fun making sun catchers and the rain held off so we were even able to go outside for a little bit.
Grassheads are people too! ( And they are so easy to make. ) We had a blast on a nice spring day making these little buddies. All you will need are some knee high stockings, grass seeds, potting mix, elastic bands, googly eyes and some glue. Place a handful of seed in the toe of the stocking, then add the dirt and tie. Decorate as you wish! Water as needed and don’t let them get too dry! Depending on your seed they should sprout in 7-14 days.
These were a super fun craft to help celebrate Earth Day! So easy – just find a cardboard tube, cut it to the size you want, fold in the top and decorate! Easy as one, two three! Have fun making your own owls at home. What other creatures can you make?
A huge thank you to the Carlyle RCMP, Volunteer Fire Department and Supreme Ambulance for once again teaching our kids what to do if they find themselves at home alone.
The At Home Alone Safety Program helps kids ages 10-12 learn what to do in case of an emergency and how to be prepared for situations when may be home alone. The program enlists the help of the emergency services to guide the students through street safety, when to call 9-1-1, fire safety and basic first aid training.
Thank you to the RBC Foundation for making this program possible!
