One Night Out: December

All the kids and staff had so much fun at this past weekend’s One Night Out at the Boston Ability Center. The theme was all about Winter, which was perfect with the snow in Boston!

The children signed in using watercolor paint over “mystery” winter pictures that were drawn in white crayon. When the children signed in using the paint, the picture underneath magically appeared. It was a lot of fun for the kids to guess what the picture was going to be.

We read the book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow By: Lucille Colandro and made two corresponding crafts. The first craft was ooey gooey fun– we made snow slime! We also made an ooblek filled snowman stress ball. Not only was it fun to make but also a good tool to use during the holidays.

Cooking is such a fun activity for the kids! They love being involved and making new recipes. This past weekend we made hot chocolate mix cones, which consisted of hot chocolate mix, crushed candy canes, mini chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. We also made chocolate and sprinkle dipped marshmallows sticks to go in our cozy hot chocolate. They were delicious!

The next One Night Out is scheduled for Saturday, January 6th!

One Night Out: November

We had so much fun during November’s One Night Out! The children LOVED playing in the large motor room with their peers and had so much fun making turkeys out of paper bags. While making the turkeys, we discussed things that we were thankful for and wrote them on our turkey to take home! The next One Night Out is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th.
