Earth Day at TOP

The sun and the water and sticks.
We celebrated Earth Day at TOP by creating some "earth art" with coffee filters, markers and spray bottles.  Everyone was enthusiastic about the project.  Flora said "Earth!!  My mommy and daddy and grandma and grampa live there!"  We learned 2 songs about the world and will continue to sing them as our new circle time songs.

Reduce Reuse Recycle Song ( sung to the tune of Have you ever seen a lassie)

Reduce Reuse Recycle, recycle recycle
Reduce Reuse Recycle It's easy to do.
Cause your wold is my world, and my world is your world.
Reduce Reuse Recycle It's easy to do.

We've got the whole world, in our hands
We've got the whole world, in our hands
We've got the whole wild world, in our hands
We've got the whole world, in our hands
We've got the whole world, in our hands

We've got the little bitty babies, in our hands
We've got the little bitty babies, in our hands
We've got the little bitty babies, in our hands
We've got the whole world, in our hands

We've got the Outdoor Preschool, in our hands
We've got the Outdoor Preschool, in our hands
We've got the Outdoor Preschool, in our hands
We've got the whole world, in our hands

(then we make up our own verses!)


A new place to climb.
 Hiking on Tuesday was exciting.  Everyone was glad to be back from spring break.  There were lots of changes in the forest.  The water was high and rushing along.  We looked for the owls but didn't see them.  We saw lichen and moss and new fern fronds.  The kids found secret places to climb on top of and scampered up familiar climbing areas.  The sun was shining on the stream in places making it a cool place to  watch how the current changes with sticks.  The sun came out and pretty soon jackets and hats were off and everyone was happy to have lunch in the sunlight.


When the sun came out, we got to have a picnic!
