This time of year is all about candy coated goodness! For our last week before break at Mustang Club we decided to start Monday afternoon off with mini graham cracker houses made by our kinders, first, and second graders. Our houses were covered in lots of tempting frosting and candies, from peppermints, twizzlers, sixlets, sprinkles and more!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Winter break is almost here and our children are filled with sugary cheer! On Tuesday, our 3-5th graders made and decorated graham cracker houses. We supplied a lot of candy, sprinkles, and frosting for the kiddos to make their dream home!
Good Morning from Mustang Club. We've had such a fun week complete with a puppet show, chasing a gorgeous sunrise, and a holiday waffle bar.
We hope you all enjoy a wonderful and restful winter break with your families and friends. Have a most Happy Holidays. See you all next year!!
Congratulations, Pranav and Nora!! Thank you both for always being quick to volunteer and help out,and for being kind and respectful with everyone.
On Monday afternoon we made Aerial view Snowman Art in the art room with the K-2nd graders.
We used crayons and blue liquid water color to decorate the background, cut out 3 different sized circles to create the snowman's body, then added the arms, scarves, buttons, and eyes.

There is a chill in the air and Mustang Club is getting ready for winter! This week, our 3-5th grade students made snowman luminary jars! The first step was coating our mason jars in fake snowflakes.
Put on the button eyes, carrot nose, and ear muffs to complete your snowman!
If any of these snowman come to life, please let us know!!
What a relaxing and peaceful morning we had making ornaments with cinnamon sticks, and other fun holiday decor.
Have a great week!!
This week with K-2 we had Slime with Miss Jenny on Monday, held Rudolph Races on Tuesday, and on Friday afternoon we made Reindeer toothpaste at Mustang Club. We had fun watching our Reindeer Toothpaste mixture flow up and over the top of our bottles.
To make Reindeer Toothpaste we started out with water, then added food coloring, active dry yeast, dish soap, and lastly hydrogen peroxide. Enjoy pictures below!

We observed in awe what happens when we place peppermint candies and candy canes in water for a couple of minutes and compared it to letting them soak in dish soap. And we watched colors fade beautifully on watercolor paper. After we experimented with this, we spiced things up a bit. We were curious to see how this would work on paper. So we tried it out.
We were impressed to see that the candies that soaked in water left a more artful blend on the water color and the candies that soaked in dish soap. Check out these designs!
At Mustang Club, we love cooking projects and thankfully we have an Instant Pot to make these projects quick and easy! This week, we made the most delicious Mac and Cheese that both kids and staff rave about.
Here are some pictures of our chefs making this Mustang Club favorite!
