Welcome December!

Hi everyone! Lets welcome December!

This week was full of fun! We have been working on so many things: holiday crafts, learning games, mother's day craft and practicing, holiday shop...

Take a peak and enjoy!

Holiday Play Dough Mats

The malleable properties of play dough make it fun for investigation and exploration as well as secretly building up strength in all the tiny hand muscles and tendons, making them ready for pencil and scissor control later on.

We used seasonal mats and beads to foster creativity and have lots of fun!

Santa's Workshop

This week we had our little Elves work on Santa's Workshop. It is an amazing experience to see them follow instructions, develop ideas and engage in socio-dramatic play.


There is so much to do in Santa’s Workshop — it feels as if the work never ends! First, the elves need to (pretend to) build the toys. Then the Toy Testing Station had interesting gadgets: a scale, a magnifying glass, and a measuring tape.


Next week...one more station will be added: a wrapping station! Everyone is really excited!

Spa Training

With our Special Spa Day around the corner, the children were practicing on each other some hand and back massage techniques.

They loved using lotion and practicing with friends.

Hopefully you will enjoy them too!

Building Pipes

Children connected pipes for tons of twisting, turning creations! It was an open-ended building fun!

Some of them created robots, others tried to make their friend's letters, and a bunch of them were very into building train tracks!

Art!

For next week's Gift Wrapping Station we had some art going on in the classroom. Children used paint, crayons and markers to create their own wrapping paper. Some of then worked together and design beautiful pieces of paper.
