THURSDAY - God's Power over Death
(because Circus tricks are death defying!)
Ours today was similar, but an upside-down version of that, so to speak! The children started with their cone, then had a scoop of ice cream on top, dipped half of it into 100s & 1000s, and on the other side added smarties as eyes, and teeth/lips lollies as a mouth. Well, that was the initial idea...
|Rice was measured and put into bags|
|Bags were tied up|
|The tops of the bags were snipped|
|Bags were counted, and grouped into 10s|
While I was snipping the tops off these multiple bags of rice, though, I couldn't help but be reminded of a Dr Seuss book we often read to our children: One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. In particular the part where the little 'Zeds' need a hair cut every day because their hair grows so fast...
Anyway, here's the set up for the craft:
Here is Tamara with her finished (I think I even made two of those) juggling balls:
Next craft was clown puppets. This was a much simpler task! I had printed out outlines of the clown's upper body for the kids to colour in, cut out, and stick onto a brown paper bag. I had ample amounts of coloured wool in my pantry, so cut that up to use as the clown's hair. I found some craft pom poms that were used as noses, or on the tops of the clown's hats - it's near the end of the week, so it didn't really matter!
Here's the outlines for the clown:
And here's my finished clown, and a child's finished clown
(who had time to make it colourful):
