Cowboys and Cowgirls - August 11-15

Woo-hoo!  What a week of cowboy fun!  Our kids stayed busy doing cowboy crafts, having fun with straw bales, and riding noodle horses.  See a few pictures below!

The one-year-olds made Native American headbands, did some feather art, and drew spots on paper to resemble cow spots.

The two-year-olds decorated cowboy boots and made super-cute horses!

The three-year-olds painted with fly swatters, enjoyed the straw bales in their reading center, and had lots of fun playing in their "cowboy hideout"!  They also painted cow spots, traced their names with "rope," and dressed up like cowboys and cowgirls.  So cute!

The four- and five-year-olds painted pictures outside with straw, and that's the only picture we got of that class this week!  But that doesn't mean they didn't do other fun stuff.  They enjoyed a "Mining for Gold" sensory tub that featured sand, tiny rocks spray-painted gold, sifters and a "Gold Mine" sign so that they could mine for gold!  They made sheriff badges, cowboy hats, and lasso names (like the three's did), and decorated cowboy boots.  On Friday, they dressed like cowboys and cowgirls and enjoyed singing "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" and "Home on the Range."

This week leads right into the next week, which is Let's Go Camping!  Stay tuned for more pictures!
