Although Halloween looks very different this year, we still found a way to celebrate and have a good time! All the children were excited to see each other in their costumes. We also did a Halloween egg hunt outside and get to take the eggs home filled with some treats and goodies. The children also made spider snacks by spreading cream cheese on to a ritz cracker and then using pretzel sticks for legs and chocolate chips for eyes. It was a fun and exciting day!! Happy Halloween!!

This week, the children in the Sea Turtle class worked on puppets from our favorite stories The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes! The children read the stories a few times to get familiar with the words, then made their own popsicle stick puppets. We created a theater inside our Dramatic Play Area and took turns retelling our favorite stories. The children also pretended to make snacks like popcorn and candy to eat as they watched their friends perform. This activity promotes language and literacy, as well as fine motor skills as they draw, cut, and glue their puppets together.
