Circus Week! - January 13-17

It's weekly update time!  We had Circus Week this week and, oh what fun it was!  We learned all about the circus - the clowns, the animals, the trapeze artists and tightrope walkers.  We had fun with colors and did some awesome crafts!  Here's the highlights from the week...

Our one-year-olds made cotton candy paintings by painting with blue and pink colored Cool Whip.  They also taped cut-out clowns into the bottom of a box, threw in a few plastic toys, dotted paint in the bottom, and let the kids shake, shake, shake!  The result was so pretty neat colored clowns!  They also enjoyed painting circus animals.

The two-year-olds painted circus pictures, made clown hats, and made balloons from their fingerprints!

The three-year-olds brought in shoeboxes and created a circus train, even choosing what animal they wanted in their "car"!  They also colored elephants and stuck a blowout party favor through as a nose.  We enjoyed seeing all the kids making their elephant noses blow out!

The four-year-olds created a really cool bulletin board from clowns the kids made.  They also made circus name banners.  Ms. Kelly laid out letters on colored triangles and helped the kids find all the letters in their names.  They then taped them to string and hung them up in a cute display!

It was a great week at The Pa-Paw Patch, and we hope you have a wonderful weekend!
