An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ Spring Break ~ April 1st-5th

Yay!!!  Finally!!  We can get outside on a daily basis!!  And get out we did!! 
The children loved every second of it.  And we loved it even more!

Double Down Hill Rolling!!!

Off to visit the chickens and visit the garden!

 When one friend got scared about coming back down the "mountian",
his friends quickly lent him a helping hand!

 The projects are taking a 2nd seat to the Outside Play, as they should.
We did read one of our favorite books, Mama, Is It Summer Yet?, by Nikki McClure!

We made spring flowers by using the bottom of water bottles as stamps (thank you Pinterest!)

Another Pinterest inspired project was to make spring window hangings using clear contact paper and a variety of natural items!  We called it a Sticky Paper Project and the children LOVED it!!

Each week I joined several linky parties!  What a fun way to share and learn!
