Ms. Sarah also helped us make stick soup. We all contributed our own special ingredients to the soup:
Ms. Sarah – Carrots
Ms. Sheri – Zucchini
Miss Miranda – Cheese
Miss Gillian – Spinach, Quinoa, Salt
Abby – Sweet Potatoes
Mason – Hot Sauce, Ketchup
Caiden – Marshmallows, Watermelon & Broccoli
Emma – Chicken
Sophia P. – Corn
Sofia F. – Oranges
Sophia R. – Stick
Ava – Marshmallows, Hot Dog with butter, Ice Cream
Ms. Sarah then added some salt & pepper while Miss Gillian added a little love. We mixed it all together and…Ms. Sarah stated, “This soup tastes gross!” I wouldn’t recommend making this soup at home.
Additional activities we enjoyed this week included rainbow tree transient art using sticks, pom poms & gemstones, Tinkertoys & Lincoln Logs, playing with our box creations, sand table with shells, water table with ocean creatures & dramatic play in the kitchen area as well as singing & dancing during morning meeting. We also learned to keep a beat with rhythm sticks. It was quite loud but lots of fun! Wooden spoons make great rhythm sticks for the children to use & YouTube has some wonderful rhythm stick activities. You can try this at home (after inserting ear plugs).
We celebrated Caiden’s 4th birthday on Thursday. His mom & dad joined us to sing Happy Birthday & share some yummy munchkins. Caiden’s mom also distributed bubbles as a party favor to all of our Thursday campers. Caiden chose to read Ladybug’s Birthday (Steve Metzger) for his birthday book.
