April 6 - 10, 2020: Camping!

Hello all! I've decided to start sending out the weekly email a few days earlier so that you can have some time to gather supplies if you're out at the stores over the weekend. Please look at the attachment that is full of things for your child to do at home next week. Our theme this week is camping, but I included Easter ideas as well. I had a thought about scrapbooks. If you can continue to take photos at home during this time, they can be added to the children's scrapbooks when we come back to school in May. If we don't get to come back to school in May, I could drop them off at your homes and you could complete them with your child. I am truly missing you all and it gives me hope and relief to hear from you and see what you are doing with your kids at home. Please stay in touch and be well!

Hugs, Jen

On top of my cracker, So yummy and sweet, I’ll put on some chocolate, To Make a good treat. Then comes the marshmallow, So sticky and soft, And then one more cracker, So it won’t fall off. I put it together, So gently I press, If I squeeze to hard, It will make a big mess, I’m ready to eat it, This thing called a s’more, Oh my it’s so yummy, I think I’ll have some more.


3. Kids workout 1 Beginners (We have done this workout with Lucy for about a year now. Parts of it are hard for her, but I wanted to share it because it’s good for the whole family!

Crafts:

  1. Campfire art. Cut out pieces of wood from brown paper or color white paper brown. Use crayons or paint for the flames.

  2. Do you have cupcake liners? Turn them into fish! Just flatten them out, glue them down, cut fins, and use a black marker to draw on an eye and mouth.

  3. Make binoculars out of toilet paper rolls, tape and string!

Other Ideas:

  1. Set up a tent and/or sleeping bags inside your house around a pretend campfire. Use real sticks or brown paper bag sticks, tissue paper for flames, and pretend to roast marshmallows or hotdogs. ⛺ Load up a backpack with supplies like a water bottle, binoculars, sunglasses, flashlight.

  2. Count bears, sticks, marshmallows, rocks, fish, etc. Try doing a little addition too.

  3. Rainbow goldfish on hand? Count them! Graph them! Eat them!

  4. Marshmallow patterns (or any kind of patterns!?) are a good idea. I suggest giving your child a pattern to follow, then see if they can make their own.

  5. River sensory tub: Water, rocks, fish, frogs, snakes (plastic of course!)

  6. Make and eat s’mores! Roast hotdogs if you have a firepit!

  7. What else do you have around the house? I have the games “Let’s go fishing” and “Go Fish” I also have a wooden fishing puzzle.

  8. Go fishing if you can!

Easter Fun:

  1. Use your plastic Easter eggs with playdough or make shakers with them.

  2. Easter egg towers

  3. I'm finding all the ideas for used up tp rolls very amusing! Here is one for Easter.

  4. No sew sock bunnies! You need a sock, rice, twine for the neck and ears, and a sharpie to draw the face.
