The country we visited was Puerto Rico.
Clownfish (Parent’s Morning Out)
Our art project was: coloring a picture of a frog.
Other fun things we did were: played on the playground, read “Hands Are Not For Hitting,” and had a dance party with the tooty tot song!
Our snack was: goldfish and pretzel goldfish with a cookie.
Our physical education project was: playing on the playground.
Other fun things we did were: made frogs out of paper plates.
Our snack was: puffed rice crisps.
Something cool we learned was: parrots can hold their food with their feet.
Our art/PE activity was: making an Indian mask and had our faces painted.
Other fun things we did were: talked about Indians, carnivals and masks. We talked about how when we are scared we need to put our trust in God. We looked at pictures of Puerto Rico and danced with maracas.
Our snack was: veggie chips, fruit, fig newtons and water.
Something cool we learned was: In Puerto Rico they wear masks for carnival. Ancient Tiano Indians painted their faces and bodies to look scary. We talk to God when we are scared. We also talked about hurricanes and read, “Clifford and the Big Storm.”
Our art activity was: face painting like the Tiano Indians.
Our snack was: fruit, cinnamon rolls, water and pretzels.
Something cool we learned was: The Tiano Indian mothers carry their babies on their back on a board with their heads secured to intentionally flatten their foreheads. In their view this makes their babies more attractive.
