This was our first week of playroom and we are back in the swing of things. Our theme this week was based on the Eric Carle book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Our craft, songs, finger plays and even snack were all about caterpillars.
Paint a piece of paper with water and then use a dropper to drop coloured water onto the paper.
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!!
This week at our mini masters program we had lots of fun making a mess. For our first craft, we made pictures by dipping balloons in paint and dabbing them onto paper. The next activity, we threw plastic eggs filled with paint onto paper and watched them explode! We finished off the hour playing with the parachute and hitting balls around.
Last week at R-tworx we created our own duct tapes wallets. It was sticky and surprisingly messy! We all had a great time. Have a go at creating your own duct tape wallet or purse… or maybe even shoes and clothes? Let us know how they turn out!
Fast forward to June 2014, and the help of Carson’s Energy Services skid steer, we’ve finally finished and planted our garden.
We are attempting a Three Sisters patch with sunflowers in the center, pole beans to grow up the sunflowers and pumpkins all around the outer bed. We shall see, we shall see!!
We had some serious fun last week at the Girls Circle wind-up party thanks to OneChurch.ca and their awesome inflatable boxing ring!!!
This was an interesting activity as I challenged the girls with some conflict resolution role-playing and before they could go and “fight it out” with their partner they had to resolve the role-play conflict using respect, empathy and fairness. Yay!
Boxing was more fun. ;)
Thanks again OneChurch.ca!!!
