Where care is most like home.

Playing in the Snow

We had a great day Friday playing in the Snow.  It was a really nice day so we got to stay out for quite awhile. Of course the baby slept through all the fun.  The others ran around, dug in the sandbox, and even played on the climbers.  When the cheeks got red we headed back inside for “warm” hot cocoa and coloring fun.

Today was a great day here at Lil’ Caboose.  It was a no School day, which generally means, PAJAMA DAY!!!!!

It was a nonstop, fun activity day.  There was dancing, the kids painted wonderful pictures, using their imaginations. They also played a large variety of games, such as- don’t spill the beans, cooties, hot potato, bendaroos and many more. We even had a breakfast pic nic on the mats in the Daycare room.

Since tomorrow is a day to celebrate our much appreciated Veteran’s, I read a kids version of what Veteran’s day is all about.  Then I put it into words that the kids could understand. I have a child in my care that was affected, sadly, due to a tragedy to a relative in their family, a Veteran.  This child mentioned it several times during our discussion, so we talked about it and they shared with the other children how they was affected.  After which we colored an American Flag as well as a Soldier.

Another all around great day … Enjoy the photos..

No School/Pajama Day

 

No school day, rainy weather= PAJAMA DAY!!

We had lots of fun in the Playroom. The kids even brought the color rice back out, which I had not seen recently.  My two toddlers even appeared to be showing me that they missed the old bumbo seats.   Another great day..

Fun, even on a rainy day!!

This rain has been crazy! But we always find lots of fun inside to do.  The play room has been used more this week alone, then it has in the past several months. The two toddlers appear to have picked up on the “Letter” books.  Advanced? I think so, haha.  There was lots of kitchen play, and weeble playing too. My female toddler has picked up a new fun thing. She drags the chairs from one side of the room to the other, plays with them and moves them back.  The older and younger kids also had  lots of Barbie play.  My littlest one did what most little ones do all day. I did some tummy time with him and some reaching exercises.

What a nice day to be outside. It was a bit chilly at first, then got really nice. Gave us plenty of time to do a lot of activities.  The two little ones “shared” many toys, like the Cozy Coupe, the slide, the tunnel etc.  Big brother took his little brother for a walk down the driveway, which he loved doing. He also practiced his horseshoe toss. The younger kids practiced their ring toss (or placing the rings on the poles). When the older kids arrived off the bus there was some sandbox play and then my daughter taught them some Soccer moves. Of course kicking the ball was the favorite part, but goalie was a close second.  They even had their own cheering section, until she got too occupied with her apple.  I have a ride on snail, but one of my little ones decided she wanted to carry it around the yard instead.  One of my other litle ones prefered to play with the wood chips under the slide/swings.  We even fit in a wildness walk.

Apple Picking Field Trip

Late posting.  Friday was such a beautiful day.  My children had off from school and so did a few Daycare children. It was suggested that we go Apple picking. So we loaded up and headed to the Orchard. We must have been there a total of 2 hours picking apples, running around and sitting on the wooden swing.  It was a great day!  Enjoy the few pictures I took, had to use my phone, forgot my camera.
