Summer Fun at Immanuel!

How did you celebrate the Fourth of July? We had a whole week of fun activities to complement our learning about Independence Day!

We made fireworks art using glitter paint and dish sponges! It looked just like fireworks exploding in the sky.
The following day we mixed up cake pops and rolled them in candy melt and red, white and blue sprinkles.
We had a visit from the Talented Miss Vicki, who gave us colorful glitter tattoos!
And we used blueberries, watermelon and marshmallows to make patriotic fruit skewers!
This week we made suncatchers using wax paper and tissue paper squares.

First, we spread glue on the surface of the suncatcher.

Then, we covered them with tissue paper in primary colors. When the primary colors overlapped, they created secondary colors!

Our beautiful leaf-printed rocks would make great paperweights or decorations for your home garden.

We picked leaves from our own garden and used a roller to cover the leaves in ink.

Then we pressed the leaves onto the rocks to leave the impressions.

We created rosemary-scented candles made with Crisco.

We melted the Crisco in the microwave.

The children enjoyed smelling and feeling the fresh rosemary.

Our marbled buttermilk pancakes turned out perfectly!

We measured the batter into our cups, then added a few drops of food coloring.

We gently swirled the batter with toothpicks to create the marbled effect.

Our garden is flourishing!

We picked squash to sauté with butter. We also picked herbs to press and dry. We will use the dried herbs in the Montessori classroom this fall!
