Pumpkins and Parties!
What a wonderful week we had continuing our festive fall flair in the classroom!
To start off the week, our Bluebonnets were each given their individuals pumpkins that they decorated during the previous Friday's community paint-off on the playground. The toddlers were so excited to hold their beautiful finished works in their hands and placed them on the windowsill in the classroom facing the playground. They look absolutely stunning in the sunlight!
After admiring our painted works of art, we had a long discussion about pumpkins and learned all about how they grow and the different kinds of foods that one can make with a pumpkin! To add more hands-on experience to our learning, each Bluebonnet used their senses to feel, smell, and look at the colors of their pumpkins that they each brought in this week (thank you again toddler grown-ups for helping with this)!
Our Bluebonnets then put their artistic skills to quite a bit of work once again decorating their very own pumpkins! Using red and purple paint, glitter, stickers, and googly eyes, their pumpkin decorating was both colorful and creative!
We didn't only put our efforts toward our artwork this week, but also devoted our bodies and minds to a great yoga class, Spanish class, and Chinese class. Our Bluebonnets are really picking up on their new Chinese words quickly!
Our week ended with an even more festive and fun Friday than usual as we celebrated our amazing guide, Ms. Ashley's, birthday! We spent the morning having a brief community play time with our Primary friends and danced the rest of the day underneath our classroom decorations and out on the playground! The birthday celebration ended with a special vegan coconut sorbet treat for our afternoon snack! It was a week and day filled with a whole lot of fun and love!
Speaking of love.... Your toddler guides would like to extend an immense amount of gratitude to our Bluebonnet families. Your Sprouts are truly blossoming and it is your constant love, guidance, support, and devotion both in and out of school that helps make that possible! We love you all!
Have a wonderful and peaceful week!

I completely agree. It is so great to see how many of the photos are of friends working and playing together. I guess its another reminder of how fast they are growing up and developing their own personalities!
