We began our morning playing in the sandbox and with play dough. We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and we began to talk about what we want to be for Halloween. The children pointed out what type of food they would like to be based on the story. Here is what they said:
"Cupcake" - Hudson
"Lollipop" - Scarlett
"Cherry pie" - Max
"Ice cream cone" - Brandon
Next, we finished working on our individual collages. While the children were working , we noticed that they were very interested in the squeezing the glue bottle. We mixed paint in with the glue so that they could continue to explore and experiment these materials. "I need something to stick to this," Scarlett said as she picked up some recycled materials to add. "YUCKY!" exclaimed Brandon. We ended our day playing instruments to Do It Again by The Beach Boys during our Goodbye Meeting.
