Easter! Bunnies,Eggs and Candies:)

The Nursery, Toddler, Preschool and Out-of-School Care play rooms all created Easter baskets and participated in a variety of activities:  Easter cards, hopping bunnies with paper towel rolls, painted hard boiled eggs, decorated egg shells, etc.

Children experienced a range of skills as they worked:

-          a great social time as they planned and talked about what they were going to draw on their eggs;

-          made choices of the colors and materials they wanted to use to decorate their eggs and baskets;

-          hand-eye coordination as they twirled pipe cleaners, cut strips,  glued materials on the eggs shapes and weaved strings on the baskets;

-          surprised to discover that wax crayons print on eggs and elastic bands leave designs, as well!
