Keeping Busy

We’ve been keeping busy.

Some of the children have done lacing activities many times but for the toddlers this was new and exciting;

KB01

Making designs with bags of coloured gel was a new experience for all of us;

KB02

In the playroom the boxes and ponies were used for chariot races;

KB03

It was part of a ‘video game’ dramatic play activity that the preschoolers created. They used this ‘timer’;

KB04

Tasks had to be completed before the spinner reached the bottom of the track.

They used this set-up to control the action – ‘press B to jump’, ‘press C to crawl’ etc.

This has been an ongoing activity that has evolved throughout the last month.  I’ve enjoyed watching the preschoolers play and develop more elements to their game.

We are still enjoying all the snow outside – running, jumping and climbing everyday.  My husband cleared the snow off the roof of the shed and completely buried the garden path.  I spent several days trying to dig it out again;

Even with help from the children this project is not yet complete;

KB07

We’ve run out of good places to move the snow to.  Besides, the children have decided that they like using this spot as the ‘booth’ for their restaurant;

KB08

Next week is Spring Break.  As much as we’re enjoying our time indoors and outside in the snow I’m eager for ‘real’ spring.  I have several projects planned but the snow need to go before work can begin.  I wanted an early Spring.

Keeping busy is hard sometimes when Mother Nature has other plans.
