Hello! Daisy families,
Hope your week has been as lovely as ours! We have discussed dairy all week long. This food theme was SO much fun, we weren't ready for it to come to an end. ;)
We started the week off by focusing solely on the milk sign. Keep in mind that it is never too soon to introduce your baby to sign language. Consistently exposing the babes to basic signs is beneficial to their growing brains and helps them to express their needs and wishes; minimizing the need to act out in frustration. Also it is a lot of fun and very rewarding to watch them use their signs!
We headed outdoors right after lunch/bottles a couple times this week to enjoy the wonderful, breezy weather we've been having! During our outdoor circle time we stirred imaginary yogurt & shredded imaginary cheese using our plastic bowls from the play kitchen! Shortly after, we presented an empty carton of milk to the babes to explore, It was drummed on and tossed around by our younger friends. We later invited our older friends to help us twist the container lid open and "pour" milk into their very own cup.
The babes got to witness a super cool experiment using food coloring, dish soap & milk. All the babes were extremely focused during this activity, especially during the reaction of combining these three items as the colors instantly swirled into eachother, resulting in really awesome designs in the bowl. Our circle time book for the week was about animals, we used this opportunity to introduce which animals from the book produced milk, such as goats, sheep & cows to name a few. Finally, we ended the week off with a fun art project that included stickers from the very hungry caterpillar book. Overall it was a fantastic week!
Have a great weekend!
