America the Beautiful Week - June 30-July 4

We had a short week last week since we were closed the 3rd and 4th to celebrate the Fourth of July.  But that didn't stop us from having lots of red, white, and blue fun!  Here's what we did...

The one-year-olds painted with red, white, and blue, decorated stars, and colored pictures of the Statue of Liberty.  Somehow we didn't get any pictures, but they did have a good time!

The two-year-olds colored rice red and blue (and kept some white too) and used it to create fireworks!  They drew fireworks lines with glue and sprinkled rice on them.  So cute!

The three-year-olds made beautiful glittery stars and patriotic hats.  They also enjoyed playing in the red, white, and blue spaghetti noodles with our Pre-K classes.

The Pre-K classes went together for the week and had lots of fun!  They painted their hands like flags and stamped them on paper.  They created a class flag and enjoyed playing with patriotic noodles, some even making flags with them!  For science play, they created fireworks two different ways; they dropped drops of red and blue food coloring in a pan of milk, added a few drops of dish detergent, and watched as the food coloring dashed away from the detergent.  They also put vinegar and baking soda in a bag, sealed it, and watched as the bag blew up and popped open!  Presidential flashcards were also fun to play with!  They also created patriotic symmetrical art, putting paint on one side of a paper and folding it to create a mirror image.

We hope everyone had a happy Fourth of July!
