Daycare Halloween Party 2016

Our Halloween party:
We had our annual Halloween party this week.
 
My daughter, her friend and I decorated the entire room with lights on every wall and staircase, light up rope lights, strings of pumpkins, ghosts, witches, blow ups, fog machine ,lanterns and so so much more. The kids loved it. I tried to capture pictures of the room but they don’t show the real effects.
 
We had Elsa, A Penguin, Raggedy Ann, a Lion, A skeleton, Mickey Mouse and Iron Man. I was a Purple Witch.  We ate great treats, thank you parents, we did crafts, (we didn’t have time to do all the crafts I had planned). Then we had music and dancing and just movement. At the end of the party I gave each child a special Trick or treat back that I picked for then specifically. We have Paw Patrol, My little Pony, Spiderman, Star wars and Hello Kitty, each with a goodie bag inside. My youngest two are too young to know what was going on, but did get something as well.

Finger Painting/Cooking/Nursery Rhymes/Gross Motor skills

We had fun again today.  Started off with using finger paints to make a picture of anything the kids wanted.  One child said they had never used finger paint before so wasn’t sure what to do with it.  Once they got started this child caught on quick.  We went through how certain colors mixed together make other colors. The kids didn’t quite remember that finger paints were meant to get your hands all messy, so they were going easy, but that didn’t last long as you will see. I showed them that once their paper was covered in paint that they could use their fingers to make pictures, so I made their names, they loved that part.  This went on for quite awhile.  In the end the papers all pretty much had the same color painting. Next my daughter, who was home today, got out all the materials needed for the children to make brownies.  They felt so grown up cooking our afternoon snack (with little help).  While the Brownies were cooking (and beyond) we moved down to the play room and did some dancing, singing and computer games. We also did many  Nursery rhymes that required following the movements on the computer (wheels on the bus, London Bridges, Hokey Pokey etc).  We also did some gross motor skill games as well (Frog Jumper for instance).

Hop Scotch, Numbers, Shapes and colors, new toys

Have a much smaller group then usual today.  Just 2 children, about the same age so that was fun working with them.  I think they loved getting the more of the 1 on 1 attention too.  We started off by doing our numbers on a Hop Scotch path I made. They prefered to just run on it, but we did go over the numbers. Then we played a Flashcard game where they had to get the correct picture or color that I called out. They did really well.  We also did some more work on numbers on the white board. Once we were finished they both ran to the newest toy additions, the Barbie dolls and their Vehicles.  There are also two pictures that I could not resist posting of R and K from the other day holding hands as we took a walk.

                  

Friends Visiting and Easter Craft

Today we had two friends visiting us (and for a few more days), they are  2 & 4 year old Grandchildren of my cousin.  Everyone welcomed them and all played very nice together.  We played blocks, Candyland, made Easter Crafts, played outside and other things.  (Remember, to see these pictures larger, just click on them).

                    

All about me Art Project Nov 8, 2011

Okay, I know I teased you earlier so really, here is the awesome project we did today. The kids and I were so excited to give them to you.  

Today we made All about me/I.D   art projects.  I read the book “All about me”.  Then I traced each of the childrens hands and feet.  I also gave them an outline picture of a person. While the kids were coloring in their person pictures, I was cutting out all the hands and feet.  Once we were all done, the kids pasted their hands and feet onto their pictures.  While they were pasting I cut out their headshots from some of the pictures I had taken.  The kids then added their photo to their picture.  Once this was all done I had them line up and I did all of their height and weights and wrote them down on the back of their pictures.  Then, one final thing before our project was complete, I inked the kids fingers and put their finger prints on the back of their pictures.   Great information to have of your child(ren) at any age.

I hope you love them as much as we did.

Remeber you can see these pictures larger if you click on them. There are so many that I had to put them on here small.

                                        

Free Painting

This morning I asked the kids what they wanted to do.  A couple responsed with “paint”.   We didn’t have any planned activity as far as painting so it was just free painting.  I gave them a plate with all sorts of colors of paint and they just painted away.  It became rather amusing for me.  A couple of the kids were very serious about their paintings, whiles others went from painting with their brushes to finger painting to full hand painting, as you can see.  I enjoyed seeing them do this.  We discussed the colors of paint they were using, and holding the paint brush worked on their motor skills.

            

Outside Fun

We spend as much time outside as we possibly can. It has been hard with the rain recently.  We are making up for it now.  These are some of the fun things we do while we are outside.  You can tell from the clothing that some days were nicer than others.  But all days outside are fun ones.
