Summer time fun!

Summer is here!  We have been hard at work making lots of fun crafts to decorate our room and hallway.

Sing With Me

Summer’s Here

(to the tune: “Frere Jacques”)

Days are longer, sunshine’s stronger.

Summer’s here!  Summer’s here!

Let’s jump through the sprinkler,

Let’s make lemonade,

Summer’s here, summer’s here!

 

Poetry

Summer Sun

The summer sun in the sky
Shining, shining up so high
Makes it warm for outside fun
To play at the park and run
To swim hike and fish
And go on a picnic, if you wish!

We read “I See Summer” by Charles Ghigna, “The Seasons: Summer” by Nuria Roca and “The Night Before Summer Camp” by Natasha Wing.

Arts and Crafts

Bouncy Beach Balls

We made fun and colorful beach balls out of paper plates that I divided into sections.  The children picked their favorite colors and painted each section to make their own ball.

Lemonade

The children loved making paper cups of lemonade with straws and umbrellas made out of cupcake liners and tooth picks.

We made popsicles for our Father’s Day crafts to show our dads how much we love them!

Silly Seagulls

I loved these seagulls!  They are made out of paper plates too.  It was a little tricky to cut them.  Once the wings were folded we painted them grey and added legs, eyes and a beak.
