Just my two preschoolers and the baby here today, until after school. We did Letters, numbers, “About myself”and weather in their Workbooks. We looked up, on the computer, all the different clouds and talked about them. Then we did an experiment around the weather, rain and clouds. I saw this experiment on a website and thought it would be fun. We started with a jar or water and two cups with colored water. We placed a large amount of shaving cream in the top of the jar. Then each child filled a dropper and squeezed the colored water on top of the shaving cream. They got to watch it come out the bottom of the shaving cream “Cloud”,much like rain comes out of the clouds. After this was done, the two girls just wanted to play with the shaving cream, so I gave them each a piece of paper and that is what they did. Next they played with baby dolls, the kitchen, little people, littlest Petshops AND a “ball” I got that starts small and when you pull it apart to make it large. Let it go and it is small again. The baby loved watching the bigger girls play with that. Then she started reaching for her own ball, and got it. The after school kids all had a lot of fun as well. Building, jumping on the Trampoline, books and good old playing.
Today I had one of my before and after school kids all day. So, getting my days mixed up, I told them we could go to the Kiddie GYM. Well, I remembered it was Tuesday when we got there and there was no Kiddies there, because Kiddie GYM is Wednesday and Friday. But, I did remember that Tuesday and Thursdays is story and craft time at the Library, and even better, it is next to the GYM. So that is where we went instead. The books were about Valentine’s and hearts. The craft was a Lollipop/Butterfly Valentine. The lollipops however, did not make it back to my house. The girls also did puzzles, we read books, played with the babies, trains and more. Another great day! Enjoy the pictures.
