Upcycling Before Recycling

Our idea for this final month of the school year was to bring recyclable materials to the preschool in place of toys, letting each child’s creative imagination run wild.

We had no idea how many benefits this would have. Besides being lots of fun, the children have gained skills such as problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and so much more. We look forward to the adventures to come these next few weeks!

Freddie Fruits and Veggies!

We finished our nutrition course here at the preschool with our friend Freddie Fruits and Vegetables. We did this in various ways, such as making art with fruits & veggies, cooking applesauce, making carrots and lemon, eating some lemons (then turning them into lemonade for improved taste!), and finally planting some veggies in the garden that we will check on after Spring Break!

Pink Shirt Day

We had a surprise thanks to our wonderful BMP mom, with LOTS of pink in support of anti-bullying efforts!

Fresh Snow Fun!

Freshly fallen snow always gives us an opportunity for science (inside the school and out!), along with a whole lot of fun!
