Wishing for Spring

So far this month, we've seen lots of spring-like themes for our programs.

Last week, Preschool Story Hour had stories about all the colors of the rainbow. We would have liked to have seen a rainbow. Instead, that night we got our biggest snow of the winter! The children especially enjoyed these books, though:

The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle
Monsters Love Colors by Mike Austin
Dog's Colorful Day by Emma Dodd

We also did a rainbow version of Hap Palmer's "Rock and Roll Freeze Dance," using our brightly colored scarves, watched Harold and His Purple Crayon, and made rainbow-maned lions.

For Toddler Time today, Miss Linda did stories about kites and wind, as well as talking about St. Patrick's Day.

The children enjoyed the story of "The Three Little Pigs."

And The Wind Blew by Pat Hutchins is a fun, cumulative story that the children can retell later.

For a craft today, the children colored and decorated paper kites. And if the wind is just right, they can fly!

Still to come this week:

Friday, March 15 and 10:30 or 11:30am, Mother Goose on the Loose for infants to 35 month olds and their caregiver.
