Kinder-Camping Fun!

Our first week of Kinder-Camp has come to a close and we’ve had such a blast! We learned letters A,B,C, numbers, writing, math skills, and tons of life lessons with Curious George! And that was all just before lunch! Your, our, little blessings also spent time playing in sprinklers, learning about Creation and Adam & Eve, frisbee playing, badminton tossing, crafting, climbing, running, singing, dancing, and drinking tons of water! We are also learning the importance of using encouraging words with our Bible verse 1 Thessalonians 5:11. This very morning we even learned how to play African instruments and clap out rhythms! We are so excited to see what the rest of the summer has in store!

Spread Your Wings and Fly Butterflies!

It finally happened. Our tiny caterpillars have fled their nest and set out into the big, open world. Ever since we got our caterpillars, we have been anticipating the day that they would turn into butterflies. We sang songs about butterflies, created butterfly art and even learned the meaning of the words metamorphosis and chrysalis. We are all saddened by the fact that we had to let the butterflies go; however, we are thankful for the time that we spent with them.

Van Gogh Sunflowers inspired paintings…

The children have been learning about the life of Van Gogh through this fun children’s story, “Van Gogh and the sunflowers”, by Laurence Anholt. We also looked at many photos of sunflowers, fields of sunflowers and Van Gogh’s many still life paintings.

I also demonstrated how to paint a vase filled with flowers, which they loved seeing and creating.

Enjoy the beautiful paintings…

“Indoor Gardening “

On April 2, we started “indoor planting.”  As you know young children lose interest fast, so we thought, “What will grow fast?”  Walaaah! “Beans!”  We read books about plant life cycle,  then planted beans in a zip lock bag and attentively watched for the outcome.  The children saw the different stages in a matter of 7 days.

We also planted many other plants; tomatoes, bell peppers, corn, winter squash, cucumbers, carrots, parsley, basil and chives.  “Come have a look.” We are hoping for the best garden ever.
