Spaghetti Easter nest

DSCF8418

We made this nest with left over spaghetti, it was very easy and fun. I realise that I cooked it too fast but we had no intention of eating it lol

DSCF8405DSCF8406

While it was cooking we made a family to go in it. The girls loved their chicken family and played with it the rest of the afternoon building houses for them with blocks since we had to let the nest cool down and dry.

We also read this book who went with the craft…DSCF8407

Such a fun and colourful book, we really liked it…

Nutrition week

This week was about nutrition, what is healthy food and what is not and learning about the food groups too.

DSCF8385First we made our own food with examples that the children picked themselves. Then had a little coloring, cutting and gluing activity to help learn about the 4 food groups.DSCF8383

We set up a grocery store with the tool bench and also a restaurant table to play chefs.

Shapes!!!

We played with shapes this week.

DSCF8309

Square puppet…

DSCF8310

I made a set of shapes for each child and we played games with it at circle time.

We learn to recognise them by the number of sides and corner etc.…then all the sudden they were finding shapes all around them!

DSCF8312

The block sorter game made a great shape stamp…

DSCF8316DSCF8318DSCF8320DSCF8314

As you can see every child has their own way of doing things…

DSCF8323DSCF8325

Trying to create some shapes on the “paint” game and learning to control the mouse.

DSCF8328DSCF8336

We also made bread, the children picked a shape to work on  with dough but as they got bigger they all became round again so I had to re-shape them with a knife lol The important is the process I guess Smile

Pretend gardening week

DSCF8264I know that it is way to early to be in the garden but I just needed to pretend the winter was over lol

DSCF8254We planted a bean each in a glass but didn’t get a chance to see it change yet. It will probably starts next week. However we saw something similar  here.DSCF8275

 

 

 

 

I made a gardening sensory bin with coffee beans and it made the place smell really good.

Zoo theme

DSCF8219

Lucky me found a few animal theme book from Eric Carle for our Zoo week! I love his books, it is so creative and kid’s friendly!

DSCF8217

Inspired by the book we made a related craft. I first traced each kid’s foot or paper then cut some ears, horns and a neck. We used the foot for the head, yarn and finger prints for the spots.

DSCF8215

 

 

We also made a paper plate snake. decorated with bingo dabbers.DSCF8221DSCF8224

Then we learned about the flamingo, had a contest to see who could hold the flamingo pose the longest (it wasn’t me).

Then we made this “hand print number 4 feathery bird”.

DSCF8231

We also made those funny looking penguins and played this custom made penguin game with a dice. How fun mathematics can get?

DSCF8233DSCF8235

 

Then we read a book about parrots, learn where than hang out, where they sleep and what they eat.

After making the puppet…

DSCF8237DSCF8239DSCF8240DSCF8247DSCF8244

we each had a turn at playing the parrot role and  asking the others : are you a fruit, a nut or a flower? After the answered the parrot had to eat them (it’s when the chasing was happening) Lots of fun!

There was also animals potato paw print…
