Science Week- The Milk Experiment

This week was all about Science. The kids made Goo and Goop with different ingredients. They put stalks of celery in colored water to see what would happen. They also mixed milk, food coloring and dish soap together. See the colorful results below!

FunNastics Today

FunNastics stopped by Big Tree Little Preschool today and kept the kids busy! They did somersaults down the mat, rolling, balancing, Crab Walks, stretching, and climbed through the Magic Tunnel!

This weeks activities in the "younger classroom"

This week our 2 and 3 year olds (along with some older helpers) went for a nature hike, did music and movement, and played with shaving cream. They also made their very own sports "t shirts" for fitness week.

Making Bird Feeders

On our last day of "camping" the kids made Smores and bird feeders.  These bird feeders were made with Almond butter and birdseed. We were able to hang them up in the trees right in our backyard.

Camping theme!

This week we made firefly pictures, played in tents, painted with nature, made bird feeders, and made plenty of smores! We also painted our own tent and pitched it in the playground. The kids even brought their own sleeping bags to nap in at nap time!
