October is always such a fun and busy month for us at Creation Kids. The Preschoolers were busy learning about Fire Safety and enjoyed a field trip to the Coralville Fire Station. They also had an eventful week learning about Community Helpers. They had a visit from a dentist and a trip to Olive Garden and Fareway. They all had a great time this week.
They finished out the month learning about fall, pumpkins, and Halloween. We also enjoyed a field trip to Bloomsbury Farms Pumpkin Patch. We combined both sites and Coralville and North Liberty went on the same day. It was a great day, though very windy. The children enjoyed a lot of activities and lunch in the barn. It is always a fun trip to the pumpkin patch.
The preschoolers had a great time during our Halloween Party. They were all dressed in their costumes. We had a costume parade through the church, played some games and activities, went on a scavenger hunt and more.
As we move into November the Preschoolers will keep busy with moving into the Holiday season. We will be learning about families, Thanksgiving and what we are all thankful for. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. All of our parents and grandparents are invited to come in and join their child for a Thanksgiving Dinner.
The school age children have been keeping busy after school with doing their homework, spending lots of time outside and enjoying it. Although with the cool weather quickly approaching, staying outside all afternoon won’t last much longer. We will be spending more time inside with the cooler months which means a lot of indoor games and activities as well as having a craft for them to do each afternoon. It’s something to keep them busy and have fun after their long day of school.
Chime Bars has started and is going very well. The children are excited every Wednesday to practice. We look forward to having them perform at our Christmas Program.
We are having a Cookie Dough Fundraiser and Tupperware fundraiser that will end November 2 and the cookie dough is set to arrive November 19 and the Tupperware to arrive 4—6 weeks after the end date. There will be some order forms in the Narthex if you would like to purchase any. All proceeds will go towards new playground equipment.
Thank you for your support!
