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.
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! 🇲🇽🤠 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.
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.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The wee little folk in the Teddy Bear class once again had our traditional Irish music playing all morning, and proudly wore our personally crafted shamrock headbands most of the day. Unfortunately, we didn’t catch a leprechaun this year—I know! But boy did we try. Those little rascals are just too quick. And, like last year they also made a big mess in our playroom—Ugh! But they did leave us some rather delicious green rainbow candy treats, which made their antics forgivable. Our festivities included a wild shamrock match game, earning treat bags, and a find the Shamrock search game, winning blinking necklaces. And then after that we watched Green Eggs and Ham and earned cute leprechaun stickers. We also listened to the story, “The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever.” And then we feasted on green cream cheese celery sticks, green apples, green pears, green guacamole chips with green dip, green snowballs, green gummy frogs, Lucky Charms cereal, frosted shamrock cookies, scrumptious festive shamrock sprinkled cupcakes and green juice.
May the luck of the Irish be with you all!
Once again we are celebrating our pinkalicious affair by reading the stories: “Pinkalicious Flower Girl “ and “Valentine Cats”. And then we decorated Valentine Craft Bags and Heart Cookies earning a Mailbox full of treats. We also played a riveting Valentine Match Game; earning a special Monkey Friend! Afterward we sang “I Love You” with Barney and checked out our special valentines from our classmates. Then it was on to devouring sweethearts, sprinkled cupcakes, heart cookies, blue Jell-O, red juicy apples, fruit roll-ups, and fruit punch. And then we proceeded to enjoy watching a valentine movie: Madly Madagascar! Then we headed outside to play “Find the Valentine.” earning a Treat Bag! Thank you to all the kids and their parents, the Valentines were spectacular this year!
Cheers to a fabulous, magical and prosperous New Year. 2020 is going to rock!
