July:Aug Summer 2020
We began our summer with great anticipation of being back at Friends ’n Fun – in a slightly different style due to COVID. The children have continually amazed us with how adaptable they have been to the changes we had to implement. What the virus couldn’t do is dampen their spirits, their joy, their creativity, their silliness, or their desire to have fun!
We have continued on in the theme of A House is a House for Me, with the children. After making shoebox houses for their little selves, we made nests and pinecone birds. The children then created masks and wings to become birds and flew around the yard, caring for their little birds and finding safe spots for their nests. The nests were carefully tucked in some branches, greenery, and out of sight of predators. Some of the little pinecone birds took turns sliding down the slide in their nests. The children delighted in seeing if their birds bounced out of the nest at the bottom or stayed safe inside the nest!
The past couple of weeks our focus has been on creating the most amazing fairy houses we have ever seen, or have ever been made, at FnF. The houses and gardens are complete. Next week we will be making the fairies that will inhabit those magical little dwellings.
We have been so busy playing, creating, and enjoying each other’s company that when we took a moment to look up, we realized summer has flown by and that it is quickly drawing to a close! Our fairy house work will carry us through these next two weeks.
OUR LAST DAY OF SUMMER IS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 14TH.
We will be closed August 17th-21st for our annual cleaning, planning, staff development, and getting ready for fall. For those of you returning for Fall 2020, our first days of school will be Monday & Tuesday, August 24 & 25. You will be receiving more information prior to those dates.
Thank you for sharing your children with us this summer. We could not be happier with how this summer unfolded.
