The children celebrated 2017 Thanksgiving by making the pilgrim's hats and bonnets. The process was very simple but the result was rewarding. The children were excited about their works and all looked so cute! They loved it because they felt like becoming the pilgrims when they wore the hats and bonnets.
I was glad that the fall has finally arrived but it seems like it's gone already.
The children and the teachers worked so hard for the fall decorations and we are enjoying it as much as we can.
The dolled-up baby pumpkin!
The children painted the stick a few weeks ago and it looked so awesome when we hung it on the wall. The children were soooooo proud of their stick and the colorful pumpkin!
We took the photos of the children with the polaroid camera. The children were so excited to see how the white film paper was showing their images.
The front view!
The close-up view of the beautiful things!
We have so much to do in this autumn but....the winter is already knocking our door.
This year, I really wanted to do a pumpkin art with the children. Carving is fun but it has limitation to work with the young children so I decided to paint it. I got the best looking one from the Trader Joe's and painted it with the primer so the children's paint colors could stand out.
The pumpkin canvas was ready and waiting for the children!
The children were so excited and they painted it very enthusiastically. They commented about each other's colors and loved how it came out.
Messiness is the evidence that the children really enjoyed it!
I coated it with polyurethane just to save it for longer time, but the colors would've been more vibrant without it.
Ta~dah~! This became the great piece for the mantel decoration.
We are the teachers of Little Atelier. We love to share our fun days, meaningful plays, and memories with you!
