Birthday Celebrations!

Whenever it’s a child’s birthday at Utopia Preschool, parents/guardians are more than welcome to bring in a birthday treat for the whole class to enjoy! We pass out the treats at lunch time and sing happy birthday to the birthday celebrant! Today, the children got to celebrate Emery’s early birthday on Saturday! They indulged in mini chocolate cupcakes and watermelon juice! Later on in the afternoon, the children were busy at the art table outside. Ellie remembering Emery’s birthday was coming up, created a birthday card for her using colored construction paper and markers. Ellie asked Emery how to spell her name, so she could write it on the card. Afterwards, she asked Teacher Jamie how to spell “Happy Birthday.” The children have been so friendly and generous with each other!
