Contact Paper Fun!
Toddlers had a very fun color sorting activity the other day! Miss Alyssa cut out red and blue pieces of paper and the children took turns figuring out which side of the contact paper they belonged on. Not only were they learning to recognize their colors, they also practiced their fine motor skills!
In toddler 2 this week the children, who have been very interested in cars, decided to 'roll' with it and do some fun activities. They first started with some car painting, where they roll them down a paint covered ramp and onto paper. This was a very fun way to not only play with the them, but to learn about mixing colors and also have a fun sensory experience. In their other activity this week, the children got to pick out cars and either push them down the ramp or watch them roll down on their own. The sun was also in a perfect position in the window for them to watch the shadows from their cars and hands!
Yesterday preschool released their butterflies outside during the small break in the weather we had! The kids had a wonderful time watching them fly around, chasing them and watching them figure it out.
Cotton Ball Painting
Our young explorers took a new approach to painting today with some cotton balls. It started with squishing them in the paint, and touching the paper, which lead to the realization that they could throw them as well. They also learned that along with the cotton balls sticking to the paper when they have paint on them, it could also stick to your face! At TLC we love finding different mediums and tools to create art with, the messier the better!
About a month ago our preschool two friends got some caterpillars. On Friday last week one started hatching, and the rest of them took advantage of the peace and quiet over the weekend to emerge from their cocoons! The kids have loved learning about the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly and were elated to come in this morning to a habitat full of beautiful monarch butterflies!
