Doesn’t time fly by when we are having fun! Fall is here and I can’t wait to see all the lovely fall themed artwork that your little children will create these next few weeks.
Doug and His Music Lessons
Doug’s lessons will continue as normal every second Wednesday, this month his lessons will fall on the October 10th and October 24th. Kids love his little song and fun games – their voices are always very excited when Doug comes along.
We like to celebrate the end of fun filled week with a good pizza. This month, pizza is booked for October 12th and October 26th. All children will be offered some pizza so you might want to pack a bit less for your kiddos on those two days in October.
We have been signing up many babies over the last few weeks and we see no signs of new registrations slowing down anytime soon. As we are all getting to know each other, Ms Alina planned many new activities for the month themed “All About Me”. We have been collecting family photos and displaying them for babies to enjoy. Babies love to point at them and repeat “Mama” and “Dada”.
Mostly with older babies, we will be drawing around their hands and comparing their hand prints, we will be making art from their foot prints and if we can hold them still for a moment or two, we might even draw around their body. We can then talk about different shapes and sizes and how much fun we all have together. We will be exploring different ways to move, can we run, can we walk, can we jumb and can we crawl…..
Fun at Two
Ms Elle is exploring colors for the next three weeks. We will be talking about colors all day long. Ms Elle prepared a fun art and craft activity where children will be sticking paper on a big template of a rainbow. Each day, different color so kiddos can learn all the colors of the rainbow.
I can’t wait to see how kids will react to painting with frozen paint as popsicles. So much creative fun as well as sensory play, what a great idea that is Ms Elle. Ms Elle has prepared lots of painting ideas for the kids to do and explore how they can mix paint and create new shades of color. My favorite game though is the “Splat Painting” where children can throw baloons filled with paint and create new art on our large walpaper. Watch out for some pictures on baby’s days – they will be priceless no doubt.
Have fun filled circle time too. They always talk about different things we can see during the fall weeks and months, how nature changes and keeps our backyards full of beauty and surprises.
I know that our Pirate theme was very very popular so Ms May promised to bring the Pirate games back for few more days. Don’t forget to check out Ms May’s planning section of Baby’s Days. Some of the most fun games most definitely must be sorting out the treasure box (on basis of color, shape, size). Pirate dressing up day, they will be singing and rhyming and maybe even changing popular songs to suit the pirate theme. So instead of “Row Row Row Your boat” we might just sing “Sail Sail Sail Your Ship”.
Later we will be learning all about opposites, through creating “dark and light collage”, exploring our “happy and sad” and how we know that someone is feeling happy or sad, big and small and full and empty. I see some experiments coming our fun way!
