Chalk Drawings

Sometimes rainy days can be fun!  Even outside.  This week instead of trying to avoid the muddy spots in the play yard we chose to draw with chalk on the driveway and to ride bikes.  The colors were vibrant on the wet pavement and the children delighted on decorating the large asphalt canvas.  Hand tracing was popular I think because we are making a wreath inside using our traced hand prints. 
Some of the beautiful chalk art created:
a volcano, a cup cake, a rainbow and sun.
The second day of chalk and bikes we even created chalk roads to follow with our bikes; this lead to many dramatic play adventures. 

In the classroom we have been learning about the season of winter and the holidays many people celebrate this time of year.  Many of the celebrations include light, candles to be more specific, which we are learning songs to sing about.  A favorite song right now is : This Little Light of Mine. Activities and crafts that are being used & created each day are: paper snowflakes/cutting with scissors, paper chains/use of a glue stick, felt trees/color & shape identification, cardboard candles and potpourri satchels. 

  I hope this post finds you all healthy and happy!
