Aloha! Let's Visit Hawaii! - April 28-May 2

We've had a colorful week at The Pa-Paw Patch!  We learned all about colors and Hawaii and had a blast doing it!  Here's some highlights from the week...

The one-year-olds fingerpainted with volcano colors (red, orange and yellow), glued tissue paper pieces onto a pineapple shape, and blew through a straw into chocolate milk to make chocolate milk volcanoes. 

The two-year-olds made lei necklaces, painted volcanoes and glued construction paper pieces on their pineapples.  They also enjoyed the lei flower sensory tub!

The three-year-olds built a volcano and watched it explode with the trusty baking soda and vinegar mix.  They made pineapples too!

The four-year-olds made a tissue paper rainbow and enjoyed colored water bottles in rainbow colors in their science center!

The five-year-olds enjoyed the rainbow salt writing tray, made lei necklaces, and experimented with color mixing!  They also dropped vinegar on baking soda to create mini explosions and had a great time dressing up in grass skirts, leis, and Hawaiian shirts!

We couldn't do our clean trash pickup last week during Earth Week because we simply ran out of time, so we did it today!  Someone trashed the playground, and the kids helped clean up, learning how we can take care of the Earth at the same time.


Have a wonderful weekend!
