Our preschoolers adored the puppet show Tricky Fox, performed by Squallis puppeteer Nora Christensen this week. The story was brought to life through the beautiful puppets, the interesting voices she used for each animal, and the silly humor that preschoolers (and teachers) love! Our friends laughed and giggled at Trixie the fox as she tried to “trick” nice people into getting her a pig. We learned a big lesson about being a good friend – it’s not nice to trick people and we should be kind to one another. After the show our preschoolers were invited to interact with and play with the puppets. Nora shared her “tricks” about how she makes the puppets move their mouths, heads, and hands. The show sparked imaginations and hand puppets were seen throughout the day everywhere we looked.
Spring Egg Hunts
Our Spring Egg Hunts and parties will be held on Wednesday, April 17th following morning carpool. We are asking for volunteers to help hide the eggs that morning. We are also asking each child to donate two dozen plastic eggs by Wednesday, April 10th. Each year we contribute half of our collected eggs to Keystone Academy in support of their egg hunts. The eggs can be filled with toys, stickers, fun band-aids, or non-chocolate, non-nut candy. Please tape the eggs shut (so they stay together when hidden), and remember an egg could be picked up by a two-year-old or a five-year-old. Thank you for supporting our egg hunt and one for our friends at Keystone!
