Looking ahead to February!
Hello children and parents! Well, we've got lots planned for February! And it's Leap Year so we have an extra day to add even MORE activities and crafts too!! To but name a few things, we'll be making Superhero capes, Knuffle Bunny fluffy tails for *Mo Willems week, Dancing Hearts for Valentines Day, handprint snowflakes, froggies for Leap Year, and we'll even celebrate "International Polar Bear Day" on the 27th!! So much creativity!!!!
*Mo Willems is the author of the beloved "Pigeon" series, as well as both the "Gerald and Piggie" and "Knuffle Bunny" series also! His stories are a staple in the centre - the children and I absolutely love them! They're great for the kids and they're fun for adults to read (and trust me, when you have to read them 10 times in a row, you want them to be fun!). I found out that Mo's birthday is on Feb 11th, and thus "MO WILLEMS WEEK" was born! An entire week of Pigeon!!!! I believe it's another fine example of the "unusual" holidays we can celebrate with the kids! Goes right along with "Talk Like a Pirate Day" (Sept 19th) and "Star Wars Day" (May 4th)! I may have to send Mo some pictures!
