The holidays are here
We had smaller numbers at Greensprout today because of families leaving due to thanksgiving. Jette showed of his skills on the dome climber for most of the morning with periodic stints of running around the playground away from the girls. We played a game where the inside of the dome was an underwater base which teachers couldn't penetrate. After a bit of music outside (it felt like a Friday so we brought out the boo box) we went inside and had Kinderblossom first just to change things up. With just Jette, Leina, and Zoey everyone in the primary class went.
After kinderblossom Lizzie led a quick art activity and then opened up our centers, where jette spent most of his time in the coloured water mixing station, Zoey focused on the magnetic dolls where you can switch their clothes, and Leina did a bit of everything. With only 3 kids our transitions where much smaller so with just a few minutes left we went outside for 15 minutes to enjoy the weather before lunch. After a quick lunch our primary friends joined the toddlers for nap, all of our big friends took naps even though they say they don't need them. After snack we decided to have another story time, so we all cuddled up on the couch and read a story. Having regained all their energy we played in the construction area for a bit then they asked to go outside early. So granting their request we headed outside and jumped right into a hoola hoop tutorial with Ariel. She was doing some pretty dancing moves. Everyone tried a few times, but Leina was the only one to stick it out until she got the hang of one of the tricks Ariel was doing. Jackie brought out an expandable crawl tunnel that we played with for awhile until Nick and Jette came up with a game that captured everyone's attention for the remainder of the day. The game was like catch, but with a bucket as a glove. Nick would throw a soft ball in the air and o e of our friends would take a turn trying to catch it in their bucket. This was a very fun start to a great holiday weekend, and we hope all our families had a great thanksgiving.
