The children had a great day making apartment buildings. The loved making the elevator shaft and decorating with stickers. Older children practiced cutting and glueing.

I forgot to list today's story time as one of the favorite activites. The book, If I Built a House, is brilliant.

The children enjoyed lunch. Today's favorite lunch food was Carrot Mochi. We've added a recipe link. The children's meals were cut into bite size pieces for safety.

Today's groups for PE were very effective. The children LOVE the air track activities most of all.

Our STEAM challenge to see how tall our tallest tower will be was lots of fun and a little frustrating for some. The older children enjoyed making super tall towers and the little ones enjoyed kicking them over.

Overall, a nice, busy day.

In a while, crocodile. (Bye 👋🏻)
