Fingerpaint fun!


Yellow and red make.......ORANGE!

Tried to cover the Littles so their clothes stayed clean but Piper's are now in the washing machine! She even thought it looked tasty and gave the homemade fingerpaint a try!

Addie and Scarlett knew just what they wanted to do.

Chloe still trying to figure out if "Julia" is crazy! Nico got right down to business! He also decorated the back of his chair, the seat, the counter behind and just a little bit of Chloe!

Took Liam a little time to warm up to the idea but once he got going he had fun!

A hello! Happy Friday! Sticks and Stones!

A few pictures of our newest Little....meet Chloe!

If only you could have seen all the other children making faces to try to get smiles!

Addie doing what she loves...she would be a wonderful teacher...or President:-)


Some of our "wonders" that we collected on our nature walk today. Fall is definitely in the air but we are sure enjoying the last few warm days!

Pictures of our activities....

J and A making their yarn apples. Messy work with watered down glue! Remind me to not put so much water with the glue as they took forever to dry!

Absolutely worth the time it took them to dry...they look so pretty in the window!

Some of the children's red activities. I love the apples made with clear plastic lids and tissue paper -- so pretty when the sun is shining!

Ikea salad spinner!


Best thing ever for the housekeeping center - Ikea salad spinner for $2.99! Thank you Maryanne for purchasing a second one for us! You would think after 28ish years of child care I would never purchase just one of anything! :-)

Terrific Tuesday!

A few pictures from this morning. The children made "bottle collages" from strips of paper, red, white, some yarn and crimped paper. It took some fine finger work to get strips of paper in the small opening of the bottle.

Liam working on his collage.

Our bottles look wonderful hanging in the window. The children were thinking that a few with colored water should join them -- love it when they decide what should happen next:-)

Yarn Board

Addie working on her red yarn board.

Piece of cardboard I covered in clear contact paper, red yarn already cut. We will do a variation of this all year with different colors, having the children cut the yarn, etc. Addie placed her yarn in straight lines after experimenting a bit with different ways first.

Our end of summer bbq! The children had so much fun running through the "mister thingy" -- thank you Den for making it available!

Scarlett working with the 100 apples tray...that is a lot of apples but she stuck with it and did them all!!!!
Nico thought this was pretty fun.....evident by the huge smile!

Addie rolling her apple in red paint...kind of like bowling:-)

Jump Frog Jump!

Addie and Scarlett working together on word cards for Jump Frog Jump. I love listening to them, helping each other, talking about the letters and what they look like.....did you know an "M" looks like a comb? LOL!!! So cute!
