Happy Cinco de Mayo

An excuse to gorge on chips and salsa…count me in! Happy Cinco de Mayo amigos! Kids First Teddy Bears celebrated by enjoying Mariachi music throughout the morning and dancing the Mexican Hat Dance. Super fun! Then we satisfied our palates by eating quesadilla’s topped with sour cream, chips with Casa Lupe salsa, fresh guacamole and spicy onion dip…mm-m-mm.

Camping Week Fun!

Theme of the week: Camping
Events: Making and eating s’mores, roasting marshmallows around the campfire, singing campfire songs, going bird watching and on a bear hunt, making personalized binoculars, fishing, listening and telling silly ghost stories, having a picnic by the simulated lakeside, sunbathing and bug catching.
Result: a huge success!
Thanks to Brody’s parents who let us borrow the tent. It made the experience SO real. What a lot of fun!!!

Happy Easter!

Bring. It. On. Easter fun, here we come. Be on the lookout for bunny tracks! We know the Easter bunny was already here because he filled our baskets full of treats. And according to his note he hid candy-filled eggs for us to search for—yay!!! Our party started off by creating adorable “Easter Basket 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 hopping baby chick. And then we did the movement activity “I am Bunny Pink Ears” earning a chocolate bunny treat. And then we engaged in a romping good time playing “Bunny Bingo” and “Bunny Match” earning a soft bunny friend. Then it was on to our special snack feast of carrots with Ranch dip, colorful eggs we dyed, cheddar bunny crackers, spring cupcakes, Easter cookies, vanilla pudding and grape juice. After we gorged our little bodies we remembered that the Easter bunny had visited and hunted for Easter eggs! Sugar high here we come! A ginormous thank you to Brody for my lovely flowers! (ginormous is his favorite word) Just WOW! They are gorgeous, and really added something special as a centerpiece. Thank you. Happy Easter to all you little bunnies out there.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya. Yes, once again the wee little folk in the Teddy Bear class have our traditional Irish music playing and are wearing our personally crafted shamrock headbands for our ultra-green party. Unfortunately we didn’t catch a leprechaun this year—those little rascals are just too darn quick. They also made a big mess in our play room and left us some rather delicious green candy treats, which made us all a bit giddy. We began our green celebration by playing a scintillating shamrock match game and earning treat bags and tossing a magic gold coin to win a leprechaun hat and a shamrock necklace. Then we crafted together an adorable leprechaun door hanger and listened to the stories: “Lizzie the Lazy Leprechaun, The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever and Green eggs and Ham.” Then we feasted on green cream cheese celery sticks, green Jell-O, green chips with green dip, Lucky Charms cereal, frosted shamrock cookies, scrumptious festive cupcakes and green punch—Then we enjoyed a special St. Patrick’s Day movie: The luck of the Irish. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May the luck of the Irish be with you all today!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE—may it be extra sweet!
Once again we celebrated our pinkalicious affair with pizazz. We began by playing a riveting valentine match game, and then sang “I Love You” with Barney and checked out our special valentines from our classmates. Then it was on to devouring sweethearts, heart shaped sandwiches, Valentine cupcakes, heart gummies, pink marshmallows, frosted cookies, sprinkled M&M pudding, fruit punch and strawberry smoothies. And then we proceeded to enjoy watching a valentine movie: Madly Madagascar, after heading outside to play “Find the Valentine.” Thank you to all the kids and their parents, the Valentines were spectacular this year! And a special thanks for my unexpectedly cute gifts—Dove chocolates (my favorite!) and violets from Violet—how apropos. I LOVE EVERYTHING! Have a Beary Happy Valentine’s Day all you love-bugs out there. Love, the Teddy Bear Class.
