Travels & Holidays









Hh – Hot 

Christmas is on the way and that means summer holidays, road trips, braai’s every day and spending all day out at the pool, or even better – at the BEACH! This week was all about holidays and travelling. We had fun learning about the different ways you can get to your holiday destination, like cars, airplanes and even trains! And we had even more fun talking about and hearing about all of the fantastic holiday destinations your Pups are expected to visit this December! I hope you are all prepared for the crocodiles and sharks, all the animals at the Kruger Park and the hours of “Baby Shark” and “Wheels on the Bus” you are going to get in the car on route to your holiday!

We are busily preparing for our end of the year routine – reports are coming in to be checked and with that comes assessments. Our Pups are observed closely all year long and we know them and their capabilities very well by now but this week, we dedicated a bit of time every day to double check some of their skills and knowledge. We also weighed and measured them for their reports.

For art this week we created our very own beach, we painted the background blue with water paint and we went to the sandpit to sprinkle on some sand for our beach. This was so much fun!!

It is so important for us to be real at Ecokids. Christmas is a fun and happy time and of course we should all spoil our kids with presents and be a little “extra” at this time of year, but it is really about so much more than that and we have a responsibility to teach our children how to appreciate the season, and how to give of themselves to the needy, as that is where the true joy of Christmas and giving can be found.

Have a wonderful weekend.

We also had a wonderful time talking about our dads and how amazing they are. Their faces lit up with joy as they shared stories about their awesome daddies. Well done, Pups!

We kicked off the fun with some imaginative play, pretending to drive cars and be trains. The Pups absolutely loved it! Their giggles and excitement filled the room as they zoomed around and chugged along.

There was also lots of messy play, which, of course, the Pups had a blast with. One of the most fun activities was decorating a sheep with icing sugar and adding popcorn for its wool. The smiles on the Pups’ faces as they carefully placed each piece of popcorn were absolutely priceless!
