New Year, New start

The little Bunnies are exited to start their year in the Nursery.

The first weeks in school are not easy for most of the children as they need to adjust to new environment and new Teachers, all the teachers are doing their best to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Homemade Giant Bubbles Recipe

Homemade Giant Bubbles Recipe

  • 6 cups water (distilled is best but tap water is fine)
  • 1/2 cup blue Dawn dish detergent
    *I used the ultra concentrated, but NON ultra (original) is supposed to work even better.
  • 1/2 cup corn starch (corn flour in the UK)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (not baking soda)
  • 1 tbsp Glycerine
    (in place of design dazzle’s secret ingredient)

To make your bubble mixture:

Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, stirring really well.  Then gently stir in the remaining ingredients.  Avoid creating a lot of froth.  Allow your mixture to sit for at least an hour, stirring occasionally if you see the cornstarch settling to the bottom.

It was a lot of fun  making the bubbles mixture and then trying to make the big bubbles:

 

Paint experiment

Trying to make a paint the rising in the microwave, we mixed flour, food coloring and baking powder  and then used it to draw on a white paper. After finish to draw we put it in the microwave for 30 second and: puff…… it’s rising on the paper.

Our Green beans

We have realized that our seeds sprouted  over the weekend and they need more water to continue growing. Each one of us sprayed his own seeds with water:

Giggly Jelly Fish

It’s Giggly  Jelly Fish time in the little Bunnies class!

We were making tiny holes inside a paper bowls, and the children needs to push the pipe cleaner inside the holes, they need to hold it by the end and try to push it into the tiny hole, for some of them it was quite easy but some of them really needs to make an effort to sit and concentrate to be able to put the pipe cleaner inside the hole.

This activity is a very good activity for the children to practice the small muscles in their hands.

Planting Green bean seeds

We are busy exploring water and giving the children many activities related to water. Today we gave the children green beans and clear cups (to see the seeds growing). first the children decorate their cups, then put tissue paper inside it and pour some water on the paper for the seeds to drink, last step is to sprinkle seeds on the paper and wait to see if it’s going to sprout?

 

Friday, May 15 – Happy Messy Day

Our Happy Messy Day:

Each class prepared different activity for our messy day. Our class cooked finger paint and soap bubbles.

 

We had much more activities: cloudy dough, frozen water balloons, liquid corn starch and soft water marbles. The children were happy to try and explore the many activities and had a lot of fun:

 

 

Tadpoles in the Little Bunnies class

Today Mrs. Naama brought some tadpoles that she caught in her garden. We put the tadpoles in a big plastic box and watched  how they swim and checked their body parts. The small baby frogs have only a tail and round body.

 

 

Mrs. Naama explained us about the frogs life cycle and show us some picture of tadpoles and  frogs. We need to be patient, feed the tadpoles with lettuce and see how they grow their legs and changing into frogs:
