So since I've got a new camera I took some photos today. They're not of the best quality, but give some idea of our space.
|A view of the whole room.|
|We created coffee filter art with q-tips and food colouring.|
|Door stars from India. When someone enters the room they will bring in only positive feelings, and thoughts. :) The children refer to them as twinkle stars.|
|This is a new piece of furniture for dress up clothes.|
|We enjoyed making these Rice I Spy Bottles with pom poms|
|I provide lots of labels with photos on my shelves to help my children with clean up.|
Here in the block area we have a pattern for stacking blocks.
|We made these birds with origami paper and glue. I borrowed the idea from Melissa at The Chocolate Muffin Tree, and her potato print birds.|
|A parent picked this refrigerator box up for us, and we love it.|
|This origami bird was made by a university arts student, who created 1000 cranes for Japan. She donated her proceedings through the |
Red Cross. I hung this in our room and I plan to do some origami with my children next month.
|This is art we created with the tops of pop bottles, and tissue paper. They look nice hanging in the sunlight, I think. My children LOVE creating with glue.|
|We spent several sessions snipping yarn, and straw to make a nest building station for birds.|
|Then we hung the nest building station outside. We check lots to see if birds are helping themselves to the material. So far we haven't observed this. I'm not sure if this will work.|
|We have three large windows in our room, which makes for good light.|
|A view of the reading corner. I really love this wooden bench, and the children do too.|
|We made these baskets from yogourt containers, and used them to take home our coloured eggs.|
|Our center recently purchased one visual timer for each group. They are helpful to help the kids see the time pass, it reminds me of the old sand timers, in a way.|
|Just a last whole view of our room.|
Hope you might have enjoyed this. It's great to have a chance to share some photos!
