BASE Purdy staff members Miss Sam and Miss Megan planned 2 full days of No School Day programs for BASE kids on Thursday, October 31st and Friday, November 1st. BASE Barrie’s Miss Abbey, volunteer Miss Lauren, and BASE Rockwell’s Miss Beth and volunteer Miss Josie supported organizing and delivering the programs and activities.
BASE staff and kids celebrated Halloween on Thursday and the planned activities included STEM (groups created a spider web using yarn), Halloween arts and crafts (kids made a pumpkin lantern), recreation (parachute, bowling and other group games and individual play), group sharing with chit chat and listening to spooky stories, lunch and outside recreation (there was snow to play in this afternoon), creating Halloween masks, playing Minute to Win it games (mummy wrapping and marshmallow toss and catch), afternoon snack, watching a Halloween movie and coloring. The kids came in costume and enjoyed the Halloween fun!
Friday was packed full with more planned programs and activities which included STEM (Kinects and Legos are definitely a favorite at BASE), Fall arts and cooking (making play dough), recreation (parachute, bowling and other group games and individual play), group sharing with chit chat (which of course led to a fun dance party) and listening to spooky stories, lunch and outside recreation, Fall science (candy corn experiments and predictions), Minute to Win it games (cup stacking), afternoon snack (healthy make your own spiders), and watching a movie. Thank you BASE staff and kids for a great two days of No School Day FUN! Our BASE Program Calendar in the monthly parent newsletter highlights all days that BASE is open and closed and we update our website calendar with important dates.
