Then, we jumped right into art projects. Our first project was to create a cloud with a rainbow in it, just like in the Mixed Up Chameleon book.
Our snack today consisted of watermelon and popcorn-- both favorites of the toddler and primary children.
For our second project, we made colorful mosaic designs.
We also played a special game in the garden today, to help the children experience how the animals blend into their environment. We strategically hid one beanie baby for each child in the group while they waited inside. Then we let them go out to find one. We played a few times, it was such fun!
Before we knew it, it was time to go back out to the garden for water play. The children had a blast in the water, making mud pies, blowing bubbles, playing with shaving cream and digging in the sand.
We found tomatoes, wild strawberries and blueberries growing in our garden - how exciting!
A wonderful week was had by all and we hope to see you next summer!
We are an AMI accredited Montessori school growing daily in spirit & intellect!
