Creating Props for a Play

The Out-of-School Care children enjoyed making flowers out of tissue paper.  They planned to use these in the play they were presenting to parents and friends.
A lot of excitement and happy chatter was exchanged between the crew as they sat and decided what was appropriate for the play.
A gang of friends created beautiful flowers that were appreciated by everybody who watched the play. It was fun and rewarding to see and hear the ideas which were expressed with confidence.  
You rock, guys. Keep up the great work!

Building with Foam Blocks!

The children in the Out-of-School Care room talked about building a big structure.
They looked around in the block corner and decided to build with foam blocks. After much discussion and planning on what they wanted to create, they began to build earnestly. This is the result of their hard work.
  Great team work and your efforts are appreciated, guys!

Strenghthening life skills'!

After enjoying building birds’ nests’, many of our young friends' were surprised to find that our floor was not as pristine clean as they normally see it.
After discussion, the group assigned a few friends to clean up the mess from the activity. Surprisingly, everybody participated in the clean up job without a fuss. Most of the parents tell me that this does not happen at home. Go figure!

Building birds' nests'!

As the weather is getting warmer, the kindergarten and out-of-school care room children are really noticing the changes in nature.
To build on this interest, we offered them an activity to help build nests for the birds. A lot of children were involved and there was a great buzz in the room about this activity. A plan to incorporate everybody’s ideas was drawn up and nest building began in earnest.
These beautiful nests were then placed in our outdoor play ground for all the children to observe and learn about nature.

Indelible handprints for Mom!

The Tawa gang of infants created these indelible handprints for Mom to be shared on Mother’s Day.
I am confident that mom’s will treasure these handprints on Styrofoam plates rather than the handprints on the walls that most babies enjoy making!
Hope every mom had the best Mother’s Day ever!
