Spring has sprung

With the flowers blooming on the cherry blossom trees and the blue skies with a light breeze I would say that spring has sprung here at New Hope. So it was only fitting that this past week's theme in preschool was spring!

We enjoyed reading our new book Mouse's first spring and filling our week with spring filled crafts. We made windsocks and we even got a slight breeze for the morning classes and were able to take the kiddos outside and let see their creations blow in the wind. They are now proudly hanging from the ceiling in the preschool room where they are pointed out at least 5 times a day. My favorite craft that we made this week had to be our snails! They are all so stinking cute and proudly hanging up and covering our glass door.

They all love the doppers

Spring frames that they all decorated
Aren't these the cutest ever!
Every Friday is outside play day for preschool weather provided and this week it would gorgeous! I made up some edible "mud".......lets just say that trying to convince preschool/toddler age kiddos that they can't eat something that smells like chocolate is fun. We had a few that tested it but overall I think they had a lot of fun playing in our "mud".... I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.


We end also went on a hike over the "mountains" or the slight hill behind the preschool playground. But the kids had fun exploring new areas and picking flowers and looking for sticks.

With the start of spring weather also brings "white fluffy stuff" season. These little white flower puff things are everywhere and I will try and get a picture of them in full force because it looks like big fluffy snowflakes. I am personally very thankful for having my seasonal discomfort oils on hand with all of the new things in the air.

Thank you all for your love and prayers.
