Thursday, Day 4 -- Fish
Theme of the Day: Fish
Campfire Story: The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen. We talked about that going fishing may be one of the activities we could do on a camping trip. We also made bubble wands with yarn and drinking straws in preparation for our morning outside activity.
Morning Outside Activity: We used our newly made bubble wands and homemade bubble soap to try and make some enormous bubbles. We found out that it wasn't as easy as we thought it would be, so each of us also had individual bubbles with mini bubble wands to blow a multitude of magnificent bubbles.
Snack: We made a fishy trail mix snack by combining oyster crackers, Goldfish and Pretzel Goldfish.
Indoor Centers: was everything about Fish!! We:
painted a clown fish with orange paint and blue tape. After we finished painting, we removed the tape to reveal the white stripes of a clown fish.
made a Rainbow fish by painting on the scales of a fish with celery, using red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple paints.
assembled a fish tank by putting blue hair gel into a Ziploc bag and adding (4) candy Swedish fish and (1) plastic fish to our tank.
went fishing with nets outside. Make sure you take a look at the pictures to see what we caught.
Music and Movement: More fun with Mrs. Turner.
Dessert: As an added surprise after lunch, our friends from Greenwood Forest Baptist Church (GFBC) surprised us with a fish inspired dessert. It couldn't have been a more perfect day since we were talking about fish -- blue jello, Swedish fish and whipped cream. GFBC hosted the Fun, Food and Fellowship event and had extra desserts left over to share with us.
Afternoon Outside Activity: With our squirt bottles filled with water, we tried to knock cups off the playground timbers. Some children chose to fill their cups with water, while others chose to knock them down. We all found that the closer we got to the cup, the better the results.
