We sure got lucky with that blizzard! Sure hope we've seen the last of the snow days for the season. Luckily spring is a few short days away!
It was all things green this week at Creative Kids! We painted at the easel with blue & yellow paint. Guess what color we made? We created all sorts of items with green play-dough, green craft sticks, green feathers & green pom poms. We ended the week with a green celebration by wearing green as well as eating green eggs & ham, shamrock sprinkle donuts & thin mint cookies! Thank you to Joseph's mommy for giving us the cookies! We also went on a green hunt & leprechaun hunt. Some of our friends concocted leprechaun traps but that sneaky leprechaun got away! He did leave us some Lucky Charms though which were delicious!
During small group with our pre-k kids, we identified who has the letter Nn in their name, stamped & wrote Nn in our journals, outlined N with gem stones, rainbow traced N & made a list of words that begin with the letter N for our word wall.
We celebrated Aviana's birthday on Wednesday with delicious cupcakes baked by Avi's mommy & frosted by Avi herself! Thank you to Avi's family for sending in those delicious cupcakes for the celebration. Happy 3rd Birthday, Avi!
We are getting closer to our moving date! We will begin discussing the move with the children during the upcoming week. We sure hope everyone is as excited about our new space as we are!
