Hello Families! Last week we had what was our first real taste of Fall weather and all that it means in Ohio. We had some “hail” which turned into snow. There were moments of sunshine and wind. And, like the weather – we shifted our plans to fit the day. We read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert, and then kids had an opportunity to go inside to do some leaf glueing to create their own “leaf person.” The play was still outside – and it was fun to experience the outdoors and the snow. Their ideas were to find and establish shelters, using spare parts to board up the houses, and create spaces under the climber.
This coming Sunday we invite you and your child to join us for a visit to the story “Stone Soup.” And, we plan to make some soup together. Since we are only together for a short time in the morning, you are welcome to bring a container to take home some of the soup to warm and enjoy.
Just a quick note regarding how things are looking regarding indoor / outdoor going forward at this time. We are still doing much of our time outside. This means that our main playspace is outside. However, for brief warm ups and art projects (sometimes) kids may go inside, at the discretion of their parent. For any inside time we are asking our grown-ups to determine and communicate with their kiddos around maintaining social distance and other precautions that are important to you and your family (that may be no time inside, or being a few feet away from others, or going in when there are less kids). Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns as we continue this journey together. – Jenifer, Amber, and Christine
