Fun Friday Concert (10/18/12)
Today was all about having fun. We had a good drop off time, everyone was in a good mood. We went inside for a quick snack then a game of Bingo while Nick and Kate went outside to set up an obstacle course. It started with jumping through hula hoops all the way to the playscape, once there you had to feed tennis balls through a long tube and get them to roll into a bucket. The next obstacle was to plant a leaf in a planter then move onto a ball toss. From there you had to get a bucket of water and pour it on our newly sowed plants. The penultimate station was to scoop water from a pitcher of yellow water and a pitcher of blue water into a separate bowl and make green water. This was the most popular station to be at and friends would either skip stations or just stay at this one until their curiosity was satisfied. The very last part of the course was to run through hola hoops fastened to the dome climber and out the other side to complete the obstacle course. It was quite a hit and we got through 2 whole rounds with everyone before interest began to fade.
Once the course had lost its appeal, the children were free to explore parts of the course on their own such as the water changing station or free play if they wanted to.
We used up all of our time outside and the. Headed inside for lunch. With a good lunch in us we laid down for nap so we could have some energy for the afternoon. Once we woke up and finished our snack we went to the deck for a little bit of structured play, we operated a gas station for all the cars our friends were driving and had a mock school class in the mini playscape on the deck, Leina was the teacher of course and Paige, Colette, and nick were her pupils. This outside time also allowed Jackie time to finish up her music set with the toddlers and once she was ready for the primary we headed inside and Jackie gave us a concert with all new material for the next half hour. As a finale, she gave everyone straws and with the help of nick and Jackie cut them into little noise makers for our last song. They took a little time to get the hang of but once our older friends got the hang of them, they taught everyone else how to use them. This concluded our Friday inside and we went outside to show everyone our new instruments.
