Spring Celebration

Families arrived with scrumptious spring food and fragrant flowers.
We made our way out to our picnic spot, shaded by some friendly trees.
Through the meadows let us walk
See what wonders spring has brought...

The flowers were a beautiful centrepiece for our circle time as we sang our songs of spring.
Then we set to work weaving beautiful flower crowns

Spring is here!Spring is here!
From flowers make your crown.
Place them on your sunkissed heads
Join hands and dance around.
(Old Freedom Train, Shayne Jackman)

The children chose their flowers and mamas helped plait their crowns with green rafia. The flowers were then woven through the plait.

Crowns ready, it was time for the Maypole.
In and out, in and out,
Weave the ribbons tight.
'Round the maypole we will dance,
To the left and to the right.
We wound our way around the maypole to some lively accordian jigs.

The table was laden with fresh, vibrant spring fare for our Spring Feast.

Then it was time for our Magical Bubble Wands.
The children gathered around eagerly to receive their wands.

"Bubbles, bubbles, the most beautiful bubbles we've ever seen
Bubbles, bubbles, lets catch a rainbow dream"
(Susan Perrow)

Who can resist the magic of bubbles?

Finally we ended our beautiful morning with outside Storytime.
