Our Halloween Party

Phew!!!  I am ready for a good night sleep.  We had our annual Halloween party. It was a BLAST!!  We had games, crafts, dancing, my daughter, she took over as Tigger this year,  was a great DJ (and had amazing strobe light speakers),painting, eating and so much more. All the children were able to be here, which was GREAT!!! I was very happy about that.

I think you will be able to figure out who is who, haha.

Another great day at Lil’ Caboose. Please leave a comment, if you would like. I love to read them.

A couple days of Pre-school “A”, “BLUE”,”Beads”, “Lines” and more

We having be learning the letter “A” (Apple, Acorn, Ant). We have been learning the color “Blue” The shape of a “Circle” as well as tracing dots to make a line. A daily exercise, fine motor skill practice, adding beads to a string, and so much more.  Keep in mind these children are starting pre-school at two years old, not three when most kids start. They are getting a great start, and they do their very best, while having fun. They love, love, love making the craft that come with the curriculum, as well as ones I create. This is one of the most rewarding occupations when you watch children grown and learn before your eye.

Making Snow People and snowflakes on a No School snow day

No School today, snow day. Missing three kiddos today. We spent the morning making a few crafts. I say the morning because, the crafts look simple enough, but doing them with 2 one year olds TAKES all morning, haha. They really did great though.  “AB” made a Snowman picture and the younger two made “Snow flakes”. WELL, that was the idea, but the blue paint didn’t work well and neither did trying to position their hands. They were not too happy to have paint on them.  As you can tell from the floor, we had popcorn too.

As always, enjoy the photos and feel free to comment here or on facebook.

Inside Day/Alphee/Computer learning/Playing

ONE DAY BEHIND. Never enough hours in one day.

Tuesday I introduced two more learning activities. One is Alphee, some parents might remember him. He is a robot that comes with cards with many different learning skills.  Also I brought out the Learning Laptop, which also asks many skill based questions. The kids especially liked Alphee, he is lots of fun.  Then there was lots of play.  We got a new kitchen set so that was a big hit, as well as tons of music being made.

Inside and outdoor play/Hard at work

Today the 5 of us played in the Daycare room during the first part of the morning as it was pretty cold out. CS did his first finger painting, and I did or attempted to do his finger prints. We had some reading time,  pre-school learning and lots of time for playing and fun.  The two 4 year olds worked very hard on some learning skills, counting,  adding, shapes, matching pictures with the “first” letter sound, mazes and more and they did very well.   Once it got a bit warmer we headed out, and the fun continued.  The kids rode bikes while I pushed the two little ones in the jogger. They did quite a bit of bouncing in the bounce house, chased bubbles and more. Once the School kids arrived they also played in the bounce house, the sand box AND my daughter helped make a “fort” for them to hide in.  They thought that was pretty great. Another great day. Enjoy the photos.

Another beautiful day of fun outdoors/New addition

Another beautiful day, got chilly come later in the day, but we  remained outdoors having lots of fun.  The kids I had with me this morning rode the bikes quite a bit today and, again, as they would ride around, they would stop at me and I would ask a question.  I asked mostly Math questions, but also shapes , colors and other types of questions.  They played tag, swings, sandbox, climbers, the seesaw and much more.  We also have a new addition to our Daycare family. An infant boy, CS. Welcome CS, I am pleased to have you here.

Once the school kids arrived we continued playing outside. Many of the same activities we did in the morning.  Another fun filled day. Enjoy the pictures.

New child-Getting used to here/Arts and crafts

Today we spent welcoming the most recent member to our Lil’ Caboose family.  He is 4 years old with lots of energy and curiosity, he will be with me 5 days a week. His photos will not be appearing on the BLOG.  So, again, we did a lot around our new child, getting him used to where things are located, a fire drill, he selected his chair for snacks and lunch etc.  Then was craft time. We did painting, lots of crafts, even dancing, then fun play in the Daycare room. Then played outside, until the rain hit. He was here yesterday as well, so he got very familiar with our “Play ground” as he calls it, because we were outside all day, and he had a great day, both days.  And today he had a friend here to play with.  “K” was here and the baby.  “K” was a good friend and showed him the “Ropes” and what she likes to play with.  She is always a big help with the baby too. (As a side note, my 12 year old daughter took the craft pictures for me today).  After the school kids arrived there was “Princess” play,  dancing,  and trampoline. “A” even showed off what a wonderful craft she created at School. “J” and “A”  played frozen, their newest imaginary play.  It is great to watch them have so much fun.  Another great day!!  Enjoy the pictures.
