HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Happy Halloween!

We had another successful HALLOWEEN BASH in the KIDS FIRST Teddy Bear Class! We heard our hilarious Skeleton Hiccups book, and then the wild rumpus began. We danced to the Walking Through the Cemetery Song during our Pumpkin Walk contest, winning a Pumpkin Light Stake, played a Witch Hat Ring Toss Game, earning a Treat Bag, and then spun around in circles for our Pin the Witch Hat on the Big Orange Pumpkin, earning a cute Mini Pumpkin! The Purple People Eater, Witch Doctor and The Monster Mash songs brought us into the Halloween spirit while we feasted on our Halloween appropriate snacks; Finger cheese sticks, red Dracula strawberries, green monster apples, black bat raisins & blackberries, green Frankenstein Jell-O, purple people eater Juice, pumpkin patch cheese balls, chips, cupcakes and Halloween cookies. And then winding down the activities by watching Alvin & the Chipmunks Meet the Wolf Man made it all that.

Happy 4th of July

Celebrating the 4th of July at KIDS FIRST LEARNING CENTER with style. We had a blast coloring Firework Pictures, playing 4th of July Bingo, having a Water Balloon Toss Contest, participating in an Independence Day Cupcake Memory Game and creating Mini Flag Cakes, earning Pinwheels, Hats and Treat Cups. What a wonderful and wildly fun party! Enjoy the 4th everyone. Stay safe.

TWENTY ONE YEARS IN BUSINESS!

Still going strong after 21 years in business, and loving every minute of it. I chose the ideal career for me. Being surrounded by little ones not only keeps me motivated, challenged and entertained but able to see the magic in the mundane. Life. Is. Good. Thank you to all my parents from Orland, Artois, Chico, Magalia and Paradise (past and present) who have supported me all these years. I wouldn’t be here without you.

Hawaiian Luau

Aloha! Celebrating our end of the school year HAWAIIAN LUAU for all students who’ve earned their “Pin of Honor” was a total blast! With traditional Hawaiian music playing in the background we began our festivities, winning treat bags, drink cups and flamingo’s by playing with Beach Balls, doing The Limbo, creating fabulous looking Sun Visors, performing a Hula Dance routine and our silly Humuhumunukunukuapua’a song (wearing our Fish Hats), participating in Aloha Bingo and decorating Hawaiian Stickers. This led us to our feast of Hawaiian Pizza, Barbecue Chips, Orange Jell-O, Fruit Kabobs, M&M Cookies, Peanuts, Sprinkled Cupcakes and Hawaiian Punch. After our delicious meal we relaxed and watched a fun Movie. Aloha!

 

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo! 🇲🇽🤠 We once again celebrated by enjoying Mariachi Music throughout the day and dancing the Mexican Hat Dance. And we even got to earn treat bags 🍭🍬 ! Then we satisfied our palates with juicy strawberry’s, ripe pears, vanilla yogurt, m&m brownies, chips with fresh salsa, guacamole, bean dip, salsa con queso dip and cheese quesadilla’s. Then we quenched our thirst with apple juice. Yummy.

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny came early to Kids First. He filled our Easter Baskets and, according to his note, hid candy-filled eggs for us to search for—yay!!! Our party started off by creating adorable “Easter Egg Door Hangers”. And then with the “Bunny Hop” song resonating in the background our hopping feet did the Bunny Hop Dance all the way to play “Pin the Tail on the Bunny” where we got to win a Treat Bag & A Peeps Stick. And then we did the movement activity “I am Bunny Pink Ears” earning a Chocolate Bunny. And then we engaged in a romping good time playing “Bunny Bingo” and “Bunny Match” earning a Glitter Putty Egg & Soft Ducky Friend. Then it was on to our special snack feast of carrots, cheddar stuffed pretzels, white cheese-it’s, fresh pineapple, strawberry sticks, bunny gummy’s, spring cupcakes, chocolate pudding and pink tropical punch. After we gorged our little bodies we remembered that the Easter bunny had visited, and hunted for Easter eggs! Sugar high here we come!

Happy Easter to all you little bunnies out there.
