Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day, Little Turkeys! First we created pine-cone turkey centerpieces to take home. Then we played the game: “Turkey-Turkey Whose Got The Turkey”, and then we sat down to savor a yummy feast of turkey, cranberry, olives, raisins, mixed nuts, blueberries, juicy apples, cheddar cheese cubes, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, oranges, cookies, Fruit Roll-Ups, brownie bites, pumpkin & berry pie (with whipped cream), cranberry juice and eggnog. And then we got to relax our little turkey bellies by watching A Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving and The Mayflower Voyagers. This year I am thankful for all of my preschool parents (past and present) who have supported me on my relocation to Chico, their kids who I miss every day and to my new preschool parents who have been super supportive and conscientious, raising incredible, funny and intelligent little turkeys; full of character and charm. And a special thank you to Christian Heather Waddle for my lovely sunflowers. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!! I am grateful to all of you and look forward to the year ahead. 🙂



Happy Halloween!

On Wednesday, October 31st we had another successful HALLOWEEN BASH in the KIDS FIRST Teddy Bear Class! We heard our hilarious Skeleton Hiccups book, and then the shenanigans began. We danced to the Walking Through the Cemetery Song at our Pumpkin Walk contest, winning a pumpkin flashlight, mini pumpkin & bubbles, played a Witch Hat Ring Toss Game, earning a Treat Bag, and then spun around in circles for our Pin the Nose on the Big Orange Pumpkin, earning a Treat Cup! The Purple People Eater, Witch Doctor and Monster Mash songs brought us into the Halloween spirit while we feasted on our Halloween appropriate snacks; red delicious bobbing apples dipped in caramel, black bat raisins, red vampire Jell-O, green monster applesauce pouches, purple people eater Juice, Orange pumpkin cupcakes, monster cookies and chips. And then winding down the activities with Alvin & the Chipmunks meet the Wolf man made it all that.
