National aboriginal day theme

For our first nation week theme we built a Teepee scene with canoes a fire pit for the lala loopsies so the children could play  and try to understand how they used to live before Europeans as we read in some of the book I got from the library.

We look at “Norval Morrisseau” a famous native artist and try to paint and draw in his style.

Spaghetti Easter nest

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

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.
