On Oct 7th, students at the Carlyle Elementary School took part in the At Home Alone safety program. ┬áThe program runs in two sessions – Fire Safety / Street Proofing and When to Call 911 with the Fire Dept and RCMP and a second session with Supreme Ambulance that teaches kids the basics of first aid and what to expect if they ever need to call an ambulance.

Another session will be held for grades 4,5,6 in the late winter/early spring of 2015.

Science+Art=fun!

This week the playroom theme was science but I actually ended up combining it with art. On Tuesday the craft was baking soda placed on coffee filters, drop food colouring on and then spray with vinegar. It was all about fizzy this week because on Wednesday we made fizzy paint by adding Kool-aid to tempura paint. We also played with Oobleck which is always a hit.

This week was all about colour! We read books about colour and activities that focused on colour. We painted on canvas, used droppers with food colouring on sugar cubes (until they started eating them and were getting a sugar rush) and made puffy paint (one part glue/one part shaving cream).
It’s always so much fun getting messy.
After, we even made our own snacks:
Rice cake
Cream cheese died blue
Goldfish crackers
Apple slices

The kids have been having a great time at summer camp this year. We have been travelling to the museum, the library, the pool and sometimes just staying at the school for games, crafts and science. Here are some of the pictures from our amazing summer.

Mini Masters!

Craft
Paint a piece of paper with water and then use a dropper to drop coloured water onto the paper.

Activity
Pour milk onto a plate, add drops of food colouring and then add drops of dish soap to watch the colours mix. (Note: it said any kind of dish soap would work but I tried 2 different kinds and didn’t really get the results I had seen on Facebook. It might be trial and error with which kind works the best)

Spray bottles filled with coloured water. Kids seem to love spraying things!!
