For the Harvest Festival we learned where the food come from and the children had a lot of fun pretending to be Scarecrows .
Our second theme was "Magic and Mirrors". The children had a lot of fun with all the activities related to the theme. We learned about the story of "Snow White" and we learned how to do some magic. One day we made butter using fresh cream and salt, another day we made up a spell for the poisoned apples however the "wow" moment was when we mixed baking soda, food coloring and vinegar. The children really believed that we were making potions when the mix started bubbling. It was a real magic moment that engaged all children at different levels.
Our first theme was "Mighty Me!"
The children and the adults started to know each other creating a bond, learning about themselves, their families and their favorite things to do or to eat. We had conversations about emotions and how we look like when we are "Happy, Sad, Hungry, Angry, Surprised". The children had a lot of fun copying the adults expressions and the adults had a lot of fun watching the children in action.
Please see below some pictures of our "Wow!" moments in this first Theme.
