Oh wow..... I am so disappointed when I came across my old blog and realized it has been years since my last post. I use to be so good sharing what we have done in our program and my new goal is to get back into it and try to at least post something new once a week. So here goes. :)

It is now fall.... We are back to school so that means back to our preschool themes. The sad part is now that summer is over, our fun with the mud kitchen is getting close to an end..... Our new addition to our play yard was a mud kitchen and the children took full advantage of play in the mud.... I really mean playing in the mud.

We will still enjoy our mud kitchen but no water.... Pump will be put away for the winter.

Now with fall we are back with our preschool program. School Days has been our theme last week and this week. We have been enjoying Chicka Chicka Boom Boom theme. Getting back into the routine of preschool. We have a smaller group this year, but we are all enjoying the smaller group and more one on one attention.

In addition to preschool, each month we will be visiting a different county. On Fridays. The month of September we are visiting Australia. We are having a blast.

Here's hoping I will be good and start posting more.... Good Day Mate. :)

Elf on a Shelf...... What's he up to now?

I heard my ipod playing in the day care and I thought that was really weird because everything was shut down..... I went into the play room and wild one was playing.... That's when I noticed Cuddles riding the giraffe... Boy that elf sure is a wild one.... :)

Of course there will be no music in the morning..... Right Cuddles? I love how the children come in the morning looking to see where he is, and they are awesome about not touching him.

Teddy Bear Tea Party

Awards were handed out at our Teddy Bear Tea party. :)
We had such a fun time we have decided to do this once a month.

Our Bear

 Drawing and coloring a bear. Once we got done, we cut it out and taped it up. We took turns coming up with one word to describe our bears, or stuffed animals.

Bear Activities

The children brought bears, or other stuffed animals for our teddy bear tea party.... We did some different activities with them in the morning. We had our tea party in the afternoon.

We started out putting the stuffed animals into 2 groups. Bear or not a bear. We counted to see what group had more stuffed animals.

Another activity was separate the toys into stuffed animals or dolls.
The stuffed animals won.

Painting in our Brown Bear Books

Our new friend - Little Elf on a Shelf

We watched the movie Elf on a shelf and the next morning we found our little elf, that we named Cuddles stuck in the magnetic letters. I'm so glad he is able to spell, but we still couldn't touch him. Thank goodness he got out the next morning because we found him attached to the tree house ready to bungee jump.... I didn't realize our little elf was such a dare devil. :)

I'm thinking after his big bungee jump, he needed to relax a little bit because the next morning we found him with some pop and popcorn ready to watch Twilight. I think he said he was on team Bella.

The next morning we found Cuddles playing Connect 4 with one of the Barbie Dolls and it looks like he was winning. He gets so excited.

Each morning the children are excited to look and find out what Cuddles has been doing during the night...

I was walking past the writing center this evening, and guess who I saw there all ready for tomorrow? Our little elf Cuddles..... Looks like he wrote a quick note to the kids and even drew their picture. They are going to be so thrilled with his art work.... He is soooo talented. :)

I wonder what he will be up to next??????? :)
More pictures to follow.

Bugs Building Game

Roll the dice and whatever color it lands on, remove that color bug. Be careful... We don't want to knock the bugs down. I was impressed with the children's skills. )
