Thanks for your patience! :)
This week I had the kids try and take the most unflattering selfie they could think of. I'm so glad that some of our more quieter kids came. They really got to express themselves in the weirdest and silliest way possible. Each kid got to take as many selfies as they wanted to however they were only allowed to choose 3 to submit to our judges. Obviously are judges were our staff and we looked through them all and had a laugh, complimenting and deciding who had the most unflattering picture.
Pictures will be up in a moment!
Thanks for your patience! :)
Hello Lion Club Families!
December was quite a short month, but packed with all kinds of festive fun at Lion Club! One of my favorite highlights of the month was our Polar Express Day! All kiddos were invited to wear their PJs, bring blankets and stuffies! Everyone that wanted to board the Polar Express received a golden ticket that they had to hold onto in order to get on the train when it arrived! Once the train arrived, everyone presented their tickets, got them punched, and boarded the train to the North Pole! After everyone was settled, the movie began! Right when the hot chocolate song came on in the movie, we got our own hot chocolate cart that pulled in! And lastly, before kiddos got off the train, they received their very own bell to take home! It was quite a special day and a great way to kick off break!
Wishing you all a very Happy Holidays and we will see you in the new year!
One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is go to holiday bazaars. It is so fun seeing all the creative (and sometimes yummy) creations people make, usually to help raise money for their community.
This year, I planned a holiday bazaar for Lion Clubbers! The students first submitted a proposal for their booth, then they started making the inventory of items they would be selling. On Wednesday, we set up our bazaar and then invited the rest of Lion Club to go shopping and check out their wares!
We had so many creative booths- from selling homemade gingerbread cookies to slime, origami to cat houses, Lion Clubbers could do almost all their holiday shopping in one place!
I am so proud of the innovation and teamwork I saw displayed during this activity and am looking forward to doing more market activities for Lion Club to show off their talents and creativity!
The point of this challenge was to, first off learn how to put on a diaper, BUT mainly how to become a Master at it. They were given many random objects such as a Basketball, Football, Pitcher, Pillows, and anything random thing you can think of. However this preceded to be to easy for them. (To be honest I thought it would be a lot harder) so the kids went to the next step and tried to diaper themselves.
Of course the diapers were meant for BABIES so how they actually managed to fit it on themselves was beyond me. BUT parents, your kids now have no excuse to not help when diapering their little sibling or when ever the opportunity arrives.
Here's our two Fashion Models (Below)
These past few nights have been super cold and hopefully soon we'll get some snow! BUT until then we are making our own. Today the kids made instant snow and its very simple. All you have to do is add water to the powder and it instantly turns into a fluffy wonderland. The kids got to play around with it awhile and even got to take some home. While this isn't a in depth activity its always nice just to be around each other and talk while playing with some snow.
K-2nd graders had a blast in the gym building their own fort! We all worked together brainstorming our ideas, then building tunnels, entrances, exits, and a fort with multiple rooms! It was a lot of fun seeing their imaginations run wild and getting excited about playing in boxes! Those were some of the best memories for me growing up, and it's awesome to be able to share that joy with the kiddos! A shout out to our school tech, Mr. Dan for all the big boxes!
Hope you guys have a great weekend and go see Wreck it Ralph 2!
Today the older kids got to make a different kind of stress ball. We had balloons, clay, water and food coloring and of course we had glitter and any other random thing you can fit into a balloon.The project was pretty straightforward put whatever you want inside the balloon and seal it! However the kids had lots of fun actually trying to put the stuff INSIDE the balloon because it was so hard. Kids were laughing when water was spilt when they couldn't get the balloon opened wide enough, glitter being sprayed everywhere. But once they did finally manage to get it the stress ball worked. It was a nice squishy stress reliever...well.
Some of the balloons managed to end up with some holes which caused some of the water to spray out aaaaand if you squeezed it to much the balloon itself would pop and everything would go everywhere. So ironically the kids were actually more "stressed" worrying if it would pop or not! Jokes aside they had a blast even if it had holes they would spray it at each other and if it popped a burst of laughter came from the kids and they cleaned it up.
The K-2 also had a blast doing the Parachute! We played some fun mini games like Sharks & Minnows. We also did the bets one (in my opinion) where you trap all the air inside the parachute and it sits like a dome and it feels like your in a cave!
