Beach + Textures
Hello again families!
What a wonderful week we had continuing to explore the beach and the textures that we find while at the beach. I've loved watching the kids getting so excited about the textures of the shells and listening to the ocean. They've thoroughly enjoyed this topic.
On Monday we created sand castles on the playground. We practiced scooping wet sand into the buckets and packing the sand with shovels. Then we dumped them over and created different shapes! In the afternoon Mr. Nick came out and he created a sand castle kingdom with a mote and they all loved it; especially destroying it at the end!
On Tuesday we created sand art. We dipped our sponges into glue, wiped the glue on the paper and then practiced sprinkling the sand onto the glue. I was impressed by how they were all able to do each step on their own.
On Wednesday we got out the sea shells and explored them further. I love how they all sit patiently and are very gentle when it's time to get them out.
Thursday was our Bubble Party! Toni came out and gave a demonstration on how we're making the bubbles and step by step instructions on how we make the special bubble recipe. The Sprouts gave a thumbs up or thumbs down on which bubble recipe worked or didn't work. It was a total success.
On Friday we had our Splash Day! We also went camping and set up tents. We will be making vegan s'mores as well! Very exciting week here at Green Sprout.
