Late last year, we managed to have some little furry friends that all the children loved helping look after, watching them hatch and grow under the warm lights. The children absolutely loved this experience, and it was especially nice for those children who do not have the opportunity to have pets at home.
This year at crèche each child got to create their own unique kete/ bags. Using fabric, paint and textured stamps, they chose how they would decorate the fabric. They have had opportunities to use technology like a sewing machine and an over locker to stitch them together. The children have already taken to using and transporting the treasures they find.
Eventually these bags will be used to bring in a variety of vegetables which we all will make into a yummy soup to share with whanau. Keep an eye out for our centre’s celebration to sample the soup for yourself.
It was a privledge to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Meadowood Community Creche, having been in service to the local community families for all of the 20 years. The children of creche worked to create the beautiful rainbow artwork which was gifted to the Community house to commemorate the occasion. It was great seeing so many of the people and families who have contributed to the creche over the years. Bring on the next 20!
Gong Xi Fa Cai and Happy Lunar New Year.
We have been celebrating and decorating at creche already but the most anticipated event was making the dumplings. Jenni Fox kindly lent her expertise with a tried and true recipe for a delicious treat. Children helped to make these delicious chicken and spinach dumplings today. If you would like to try them at home yourself find the link below and don't forget to ask the children to show you how they did it. www.withthefoxes.nz/homemade-dumplings
