Fish Week 2018

This last week in May we will make fish prints at art. The children will have a chance to choose the colors they would like to paint their fish and see how those colors blend when made into a print. We will have a fishing pool set out in the blocks area with a ‘dock’ to stand on to catch fish. A fun activity at home is to ‘catch’ goldfish crackers with humus ‘bait’ on the end of a long, fat pretzel ‘fishing pole’. You can use anything long like a pretzel, celery, or carrot to be your pole and any thick bait like humus, cream cheese, or a nut butter to catch anything you like that is small (like a fishy cracker, cut in half olives, cheerios, etc.).  It is a fun way to eat a snack!

Bears Class and Owls Class will have their Pajama Nights on Tuesday (Bears) and Wednesday (Owls) – 6– 7:30pm. Bring cut up fruit for the fruit bowl. Pancakes will be made.
