A favorite spot for our little ones is the one by the window! They love to stand and look out at the world going by. We will focus their attention this month on the birds and their activities. We will hang up bird feeders and bird houses and then we will mimic all things bird. We will make nests, count eggs and sing a sweet song with our friends. Watch as the rooms turn green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day when green play dough, green shaving cream and even some Leprechaun treasure will appear.
- March 4 – 8 –We’ve heard that birds of a feather flock together so we will be sorting bird feathers by colors and counting out eggs to match up with nests we may even build some nests of our own over in the block area.
- March 11 – 15 – We will be making a beautiful bird collage as the children practice tearing bird pictures out of magazines and gluing them on our large class mural. If you have any magazines with bird pictures you don’t want send them in!
- March 18 – 22 – The Leprechauns are coming and everything we do seems to be turning green as we make an paint our own shamrocks and make cool St. Patrick’s Day necklaces from green, glitter play dough.
- March 25 – 28 – This week’s cooking project is for the birds…literally! We will be making homemade bird seed treats with bread, peanut butter and bird seed. When we finish that we will make some kid seed treats with toast, sunflower seeds and raisins.
