We are sadly counting down the days until this school year comes to a close, but the teachers at UDCNS wanted to enjoy some summertime fun with their kiddos before the school year lets out!!! So, a school wide Beach Themed Party it is!!!! We had the kiddos arrive at school with their bathing suits on, sunglasses donned, sun tan lotion applied and beach blanket in tote. Rain or Shine, we were bringing the beach to our nursery school!
Several of the classes teamed up so that the classmates could explore new friends and enjoy the various stations together. The kiddos got to soak in some church backyard fun in the Bounce House and Water Table Sessions. We even had some fun learning with numbers and water paint at our Easel Center.
Depending upon the class, there were various age appropriate summertime beach crafts planed that the kiddos could enjoy. Beach in a Bottle, Fish, Crabs and Seahorse creations were just a few of the various imagination efforts that were cooking around the school.
We also pulled out the beloved Cozy Coupe Cars. We have a fleet of about 20 or so that have all been donated to the church throughout the years. We don't know why (actually we do... they are FUN), but the kiddos just ADORE playing with these cars. They get so excited whenever we mention that they are on the schedule. A great reminder... that those tried and true toys, activities and games are always the BEST!!!! So, the kiddos enjoyed some Cozy Coupe Beach time cruising with some baby pool water play and chalk art imagination, as well!
What is a Beach Time Party, without some tasty treats? We laid out our beach towels, and the kiddos got to enjoy a moment of rest in the shade with some yummy popsicles (we had red, blue, green, purple & yellow). You might have been able to guess what color they chose based upon the evidence left on their smiles at pick up time. It was also fun to have several classes together to enjoy the various snack time prayers that are echoed within our classrooms each day throughout the year.
Oh, and before you go... Check out Mrs. A's Amazing Octopus Door that will set the tone for any under water beach time theme! The kiddos felt like they were submerged within the water time ocean fun each time they came to class this week. So, Fun!!!!
All the staff at UDCNS are so blessed to have your kiddos in our class each and every day. We truly enjoy them and are honored to watch them learn, grow, play and just share in God's wonderful love. We hope you get to enjoy some relaxing, wonderful, family fun with your kiddos this summer, which may or may not include some beach time joys!
