Today the children were excited to take part in an Easter Egg hunt in the family centre garden. Everyone found an egg to take home and show their parent; yippee!!
Next the children played hide and seek. Kaile found Abby behind the man at work sign…great hiding place. Later the children decided to, play hop scotch, build a large obstacle and then the decided to make their own slide.
Today the boys and girls went for a short walk to the local shops to buy some snack goods.
They decided on some pancakes, fruit, crackers and cheese…Yum!
Today has been a busy day for us as we have been out and about visiting our friends in the community and showing off our Easter Hats. The lovely ladies who work in the kitchen were very impressed with the designs on the children’s hats and were delighted to see us.
Michael’s sheep hat was a big hit!
In the afternoon we walked over to see our friends at Bonnyton House. We haven’t seen them for a little while so it was nice to catch up and show off our hats to them too.
We sang some Easter Songs, and the ladies and gentlemen were clapping their hands and singing along with us.
Enjoy this little film, and have a think about this question….
What came first? The Chicken or the Egg? Answers in the comments box please ….
Tomorrow we are hoping that the Easter Bunny will hop along to our centre and leave some eggs for us. He/She (who knows?) has a habit of hiding the eggs for us to hunt for them, so that will be fun. We are also visiting our friends at Williamwood High School and Bonnyton House with our Easter Hats on.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Easter Craft event today. The children were very excited to play and learn with you in our family room. It’s also a good opportunity for you all to take away some of the ideas and experiences you shared and carry them out again with your children over the Easter holidays.
Messy, but fun!
Thank you for supporting our little Easter event.
We enjoyed a wee treat today. We had a nice time icing biscuits and tasting as we went along. It was also an opportunity for us to sit together and have a social chat about ourselves and our news.
We had a lovely walk to Clarkston to visit the Pet Shop and Vets We visited the pet shop to see the animals there. On our visit the children were able to name the Parrot and hear it talk. When we were in the shop the Shop Keeper showed us all the different foods that nimals need to stay healthy and nurtured. We were able to see that animals have different living environments and needs. We saw fish, birds, bearded dragons, rabbits, and locusts.
We saw baby bunnies and budgies which looked like our easter chicks.
We also watched a dog at the groomers getting his coat taken off for spring time. ‘He is pretty.’ We talked about taking off our heavy coats as it is warmer now. The man in the pet shop allowed us to scan items in the shop to explore how a cash register works. We bought a little bird feeder for our bird box outside.
What a lovely visit! We will definitely be back.
We had an Easter Craft & Coffee Day today for our children and their families. The children decorated a biscuit to have for their snack as a special treat.
