GET OUTSIDE! Staff Edition
The team at Dawn and Dusk spent the day in a forest in Gimli Manitoba on Saturday September 24.
The team learned the safety and appropriate way to introduce some new ways of outdoor play to keep our kids inspired by the great outdoors.
***Please note this would only happen in a safe environment for fire (in-service with fire pit)
Permission slips will need to be signed by parents in order for any children to participate in this part of the Dawn and Dusk Program
Blocks, blocks & more blocks!
Over the past few weeks the kids have building lots of different things in the block area.
They are building with all sorts of things, lego, colored planks and train sets.
They are even combining toys from different areas to bring their ideas to life.

This morning after walking into our film room and finding kids making Paper Airplanes we decided to open the gym and let the kids race and play with their airplanes there.
Some knew how to make their own and some needed a little extra help, but everyone who came got to make their own, throw it and keep them!

The sandbox is always a hot commodity!
These girls used this setup as both an ice-cream making factory, as well as the base of a science experiment.
This just goes to show the power of creativity, and the idea that a little goes a long way.

Racing Tic Tac Tow
This was the first time we've tried this game at our centre and it was a success!!
Tic-Tac-Toe is a fun game the kids already knew but now brought to giant size. The game involves running/racing and using problem solving and thinking ahead to try and make a quick decision.
Carter said "This game is really fun!"

GET OUTSIDE! The first week back
It is our second year starting off with the wonderful folks from Games2U.
It was such a fun way to kick off the school year. Hamster balls, laser tag, Ulaunch (water balloons) and the foam pit provided fun for all children (and staff) in attendance!
