the ra-ra report
Ra-Ra here, and it smells to me like we're just getting to the best part of our long unit on the five senses here at EcoBaby! At the preschool, the kids are smelling up the place with all kinds of fragrant and delectable projects from one day to the next. Let's take a look!
Our friends had a lot of fun making these deliciously scented cinnamon paintings! I bet Jackson Pollock never thought of using that in his work! They hung them up right by my cage and I noticed something interesting. Even though I try and keep my cage really clean just like a big bunny should, the scent of cinnamon really helps on those stinky litter pan days. Thanks, guys- this is the best!
When it was time to start tasting, I knew I was up for the challenge. I've tasted most things around here. Cubbies, pants, even Lincoln Logs. Our friends got to try out their different senses of taste with sour lemons, salty pretzels, sweet apples, and bitter dark chocolate. Ms. Caitlyn even saved a little apple just for me! Sweet! (No, I mean it. They're sweet.)
You know what else is sweet? The luscious banana pudding our student teacher Hali lead our friends in whipping up! Some got to mix, some got to pour, and everyone got to enjoy this sweet treat. I'm bananas about bananas. The best part was getting to have our pudding picnic in the sun outside. HELLO SPRING!
Today was a citrus blast, taking turns helping to put together a batch of soft moon dough, scented with lime. The kids even got to taste a bit of the lime before it was used in the project and wow! They were so clever to remember that they tasted sour, just like the lemons they'd tasted the day before!
Well, that's all the news that's fit to nibble from the preschool. I'll hand it over to Cooper & Max at the daycare, and smell you later! (I probably will, honestly. Have you seen the way my little nose wiggles?)
The coop scoop
Thanks, Ra-Ra, and you'll never guess what! The preschoolers paved the way for the project our infant student teacher did with all these babies. Babies are already so good at feeling things with their little fingers, especially my fuzzy coat! Our student teacher helped the little ones with the same squish paintings your friends were just doing! Take a look!
How talented are these babies? Too good!
Over in toddlers, Ms. Jasmin put together a lavender-scented sensory experience with water and sudsy soap for our friends to splash in. I could smell it all the way from here. It smelled clean and fresh like someone was having a bath!
Hey Max, what's the word?
A few words from max:
My favorite smell is those stinky toddler feet.
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
The newest addition to our team, Cooper is always ready to report the action at the daycare in his segment "The Coop Scoop"
