The Kinders had a blast making their first batch of playdough here together. We wanted to make it a festive orange so that's what we did! Once made, the Kinders went straight to work, creating beautiful 'meals' and giving eachother 'taste tests'. They were rolling, cutting, cooking and creating. Play dough is a favorite for sure, but who doesn't love playdough?
Our first field trip was definately a success. For most of the Kinders, it was their first time on a bus, ever! Some of them wanted to keep riding the bus and never get off. The Kinders found lots of books they wanted to take a look at. There were so many to choose from. We all really enjoyed our time and we can't wait for the next trip.
The Kinders have been enjoying mixing and measuring during playtime outside so we thought it would be great to do that and bake something we can eat later. "It's the Kinder baking show!" said Elliott very excitedly. The Kinders were asked what their favorite part about baking the apple crisp was and Hayden said "everything!" What a great way to bring in the fall season. Yum! More baking to come.
The morning was spent mixing shaving cream and cornstarch and the results were amazingly fun! Right before we started, Nash was a bit concerned and asked "are we going to be shaving our heads?" We didn't shave anyones head, mixing the two was exciting enough! The Kinders made comments like "oh it's so soft" and "it looks just like snow". The clean up was well worth it.
We held our first ever show and share in the Kinder room this year and I can say it was a success! Everyone brought in their toy of choice and shared with the group. There were really cool toys such as Darth Vader as well as some sentimental ones which included a special blanket and stuffed toy. Thanks everyone for participating!
