12th Aug- 6th Sep 2019
Today we start the holiday program utilizing our creative minds. Sticking pom poms on the lining of our own names and decorating our very own name portraits to start the day! Later on we will be creating our own funny fruit and veggie face plates with strawberries, apples, bananas, beans, tomatoes and cucumber!

Let’s learn about our bodies! We are making hand x-rays using white paint and earbuds on black paper. We will also learn about our fingerprints and make fingerprint print paintings in the afternoon.
Today the children will exercise their creative, cognitive and problem-solving muscles with a good puzzle. The children will also enjoy drawing a picture on a sturdy piece of cardboard. Then use a pencil to outline puzzle pieces directly on their drawing. They will then cut out the pieces with a good pair of scissors, mix them up and get solving.
Bigger puzzle pieces for our little Ladybugs and smaller for our Dragonflies.
Dancing is not only fun, but a great way to stay active. The children are going to battle it out on the ‘dancefloor’ to see who has the best moves. We will also be enjoying musical chairs and statues to all our favourite songs!
