Session 4 Clubs End
Coloring Club with Jeanne-
Our last day of club was filled with more coloring. Velvet coloring pages were decorated with bright, beautiful markers. There is no doubt about it, coloring is an activity that provides so many positive benefits. Coloring Club opened the door to many fun conversations giving the children the opportunity to connect with new friends. It was a pleasure working with the group and seeing them take part in the art of expressing themselves through coloring.
Pet Club with Kathy-
We had such a great time in Pet Club! We made leprechaun traps, pet seashells, bird nests and had a stuffed animal adoption! The kids were so focused and really took their time and did such a great job with all of their projects!
Kitchen Science Club with Kim-
What a lot of fun this club has been!! We did so many experiments with Peeps, Skittles, Lemons, Popcorn and more! Each child is going to come home with a packet of all the experiments to try over and over again.
Imagination Club with Trish-
Imagination Club was amazing!! Our last two clubs we used our imagination with popsicle sticks and cups. We built creative things with different sizes and colors of popsicle sticks. But our favorite was designing structures using plastic solo cups! We also turned off the lights and added string lights and candles! So much imagination!!!
Minute It To Win It Club with Scott-
Minute to Win It club was a raving success with friends chomping at the bit every week! We had an absolute blast challenging our hand-eye skills, fast thinking skills, balancing skills, and an opportunity to eat an extra snack every Wednesday. I have posted each weeks statistics up on our club boards, so feel free to check out your accomplishments. If anyone has a new challenge they wish for me to add to club, fill me in.
Passport Club with Terri and Carol-
Passport club is back after 6 weeks, tired but happy! ...yes we went through the magic hat and filled our passports with stamps from Japan, Australia, Disneyland, Costa Rica, Iceland and Norway. The kids did some creative crafts and learned some fun facts - reindeer bacon for breakfast anyone?.. visit Norway for that or rise and shine to howler monkeys when you head to Costa Rica! We found out Walt Disney didn’t like mice yet his most famous host is none other than Mickey Mouse! We tried Brie and Berry lemonade from France but were unable to get fish jerky from Iceland - next time maybe!
Super Structures Club with Megan and Joanne-
We recently constructed and raced wind powered cars. The children really enjoyed placing their cars in front of a box fan and watching them zoom across the cafeteria floor. We learned to make adjustments to the cars to make them run straight and increase speed. In our next session, we discussed packaging delicate items. (Think Amazon deliveries!) We proceeded to carefully bundle up eggs, using recycled materials, to prepare for a drop off of the playground structure. All of our engineers had success with their individual package designs! Not a single egg cracked! We will be wrapping up our sessions this week with a parachute and zip line challenge day.
Circus Fun Club with Nancy-
Circus Club was so much fun in many ways. For me, it provided a great opportunity to really get to know my group of children. They are passionate, creative, and willing to learn. I truly enjoyed their individual personalities and spirits. For the children, they worked together to create a circus train mural, circus animal costumes, and they hand-made the very fun carnival games for our final club day activity, the MAP Circus Carnival! Ring toss, juggling, ball toss, ping pong ball obstacle course, and more! It was a terrific way to end our weeks of fun!!!
Surprise Club with Jodi-
We ended Surprise Club by surprising a friend on the other side of the world! We made pictures and sent some yummy snacks to Captain Nicholas Losapio who is currently flying Osprey helicopters in Kuwait on his second tour of duty. I’m happy to report he received the package and was thrilled! Thanks for making surprise club so fun!
