The Ra-Ra Report
Is green your favorite color? I really love it because it's the color of lettuce, of kale, of cucumbers and kiwi, of fresh grass and hay- all the things I love to nibble the most! But I didn't realize until this week just how much there was to love about G-R-E-E-N. (That spells green, you know.)
You know how green we are here at EcoBaby, and we put those green skills to the test when our preschool friends made their cunning leprechaun traps for our Shamrock Shindig. Did you know you could catch a leprechaun? Neither did I!
Ms. Caitlyn, Ms. Ali, and our student teacher Hali made a big pile of all kinds of things- bits of cardboard, toilet paper and paper towel tubes, egg cartons, and every pom-pom, pipe cleaner, and pasta in the place! Whew! The kids set to work diligently gluing together their very fancy, and (we learned), very complexly engineered traps.
(Look out, RPI! In about fifteen years, they're coming your way!)
Ms. Caitlyn set them out carefully after each one was finished. We knew that sneaky leprechaun was in for it! The next morning, before anyone was here, I saw him appear in a shimmer, and he almost got snagged by every one of our friends clever traps!
Leprechauns are tricky and fast, and he wasn't quite caught. (If only they had used a cage like mine!) But a leprechaun sure loves mischief and he was proud of the kids for doing such a tricky job on their traps. I watched him leave them gifts of green magic jewels, (and sticky leprechaun juice footprints all over the classroom.)
Ms. Caitlyn had quite the time scrubbing those footprints off the classroom. I would have helped, but I had some very important things to nibble.
Our preschool friends celebrated their shamrock success with beautiful rainbow fingerprint paintings. What a day!
I see everything that goes on in our preschool classrooms. This is my account of a day in the life of the Eco Baby Bunny
