"In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed."
-- Khalil Gibran
We started out with our older student, Audrey, teaching the younger ones how to weave our laundry baskets. While I was setting up the kids used the crepe papers to help them run faster. When they had run their sillies out, we sat down and had Audrey help them weave the crepe paper in and out.
We moved on to some outside painting. We learned that if pink shares with blue, we can make purple. The kids decided to finger paint and then collect items from outside to manipulate the paint. It was a great activity that kept them involved for quite some time.
They definitely built up the quite the appetite from our morning so we started our snack time. We spread the love with our own homemade strawberry jam. Each child "picked" their strawberries, put them in zip lock bags, added a pinch of sugar and smashed the berries into jam. Even our littlest student, Royce, joined in! Then, we sat down and enjoyed our jam on some crackers.
After snack, Audrey showed how much she cared about her friends by reading a story to them while they snuggled with their favorite stuffed animal.
When story time was over, we talked about how we can show that we care about our friends when they are hurt. Creating our band aid card was super fun and super cute!
We ended the day, with our share box and the kids decorated with stickers.
