What an incredible summer we have had with our Parent and Tot campers at Green Acres! Our “tots” ranged in age from 15 months to 3 years old as they joined us for action packed morning on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Our mornings began with free exploration at various sensory stations such as sand, water tables, chalk drawing, balls and bubbles. Marni played her guitar and Risa helped lead the morning circle with musical instruments, active songs and creative movement activities. The children had an amazing opportunity to experience all of the amazing activities that Green Acres has to offer. The children rotated between two structured and hands on activities each day and they had the opportunity to experience farm, ponies, gymnastics, cooking and pottery. Each week featured a different theme such as “Dynamo’s Birthday”, “Dr. Seuss” and “All About Me” and the daily crafts supported these themes. During our seven week program, the children got to meet Dynamo and they participated in Corn Roast, tractor rides and parachute games Our campers especially loved the water slides and swimming (We’re not sure who had more fun on the water slides – the children or their parents!). Our campers arrived and left each day with huge smiles on their faces and Snickle Snackle in their hands. We have made so many new friends and hope to see our tots back at Green Acres next summer!
