The title says it all (and went along with our first day theme for this past year)! I couldn't let this day pass by without sharing a little bit of it with you!
Breakfast: green lily pad pancakes with a tangerine flower and chocolate chip "flies". We also had homemade whipped cream available for those who wanted/needed it. ;)
Once the last assignment was turned in for the day, I told the kids to get into their swimsuits and meet me in my room. This doorway was what greeted their little eyes. Through it was a pond I created for their playing pleasure!
These were my homemade lily pads (I cut up a leftover green vinyl tablecloth and glued the pieces to the lids of plastic containers). The flowers were just some cheap pretend flowers I found in our box of spring things. :)
A pond wouldn't be complete without some creatures, right? I included a container of ducks, plastic flies, plastic frogs, and frog tongues (party blowouts). They had so much fun!
After splashing in the pond for a while, we headed out for a dinner of burgers and fries followed by dessert at home while watching a movie. It was a cozy way to end our day (and school year) together! :)
