Outside Play May 14 2015

A beautiful day today. We spent it outside enjoying the warmth and sun while we have it.  We brought the paints outside with us, however the wind kept us from being able to paint.  There was tag, flower picking, climbing, making mud soup, showing off loose teeth and much more. And our newest addition BC, has become comfortable quickly, which is wonderful.

Another great day at Lil’ Caboose.  I hope you enjoy the pictures..

May 6th Outside play/Welcome a New Addition

Today we want to welcome BC to our Daycare family.  He and JP were inseparable all day. We were outside all day, again, except for lunch and rest. Everyone was all Sun screened, Sun hatted and protected. Hoping to get the canopies up tomorrow for shade.

Another great day at Lil’ Caboose. Enjoy the photos.

Outside fun all day April 22 2015

We went outside today at 9:00, came in for lunch & rest, and right back out.  There was no shortage of things to do. Swings, sandbox, parachute, bike riding, climbers, slide, a nature walk to see what we could find and more.

I was missing one today, but he will be back tomorrow.      Enjoy the pictures.

No School day… Tons of fun March 13 2015

I tried something a bit different this morning. The kids were all hyped up so we all sat down on the mat and for about 10 minutes we practice deep breathing. The kids said it helped, but only they know.  Then AB and JP decided to do some push ups and one legged stands. Next we sat down and made “Veggie” masks. The kids loved those, almost as much as coloring some “Frozen & Princess” pictures. They were pretty proud of those, and should be.  I worked 1×1 with CS on fine motor skills of holding a pencil/marker.  If that wasn’t enough fun, the fort building began, and finished. CS was the first to check it out. He took off through all the curves inside.  Then it was “make your own pizza” time. Who knew the kids would get so excited about this project? After lunch we headed back down to the Daycare room so that the kids could all check out the fort. They just sat inside for about the first 30 minutes. I think it got a bit cramped after that.  And there were the normal, everyday things: Barbies, peek a boo with CS, kissing the baby, Army figures and silly faces.

Another great day.  Enjoy the photos.

Fun inside and outside in the snow.

Lots of fun and variety today inside. Then we got to enjoy some time outside as well, in the snow. A few went sliding, and a few didn’t.

Another great day. Hope you enjoy the photos.

February School Vacation Wednesday 18th 2015

Today was filled with lots of fun. My daughters joined the Daycare for awhile to play games with the kids. My oldest daughter gave airplane rides with her knees and feet. She also did a “hair Salon” and a Disney music dance party.  My younger daughter was a “Teacher” and did really well helping the kids with letters and counting.  She also played barbies and house with the kids for some time. The kids love it when they come down. A variety of toys/items were used, as well, today.  Quite a bit of imaginary play went on.

Another great day. Enjoy the pictures. Some really cute ones.

New Construction set/Block Trains/Fashion Show all in one day.

Wednesday was a great day here. There was a half day of School so all the kids were here all afternoon.  During the morning the younger kids and I played with some fine motor toys as well as creative play.  I picked up a new toy that was a big hit, a construction set. I also got wooden trains that the children place blocks on to build them up.
During the afternoon the older three kids begged my daughter to do a fashion show. She agreed and below you can see how wonderful and “Cool” they all looked.

Another great day!

I hope you enjoy the photos and BLOG. If so, please consider leaving a comment.
