Last week I did what I like to call a “glorified storytime”. It’s a special program outside of the regular ST session but it’s very similar to the same setup as a ST except I may do another activity and I usually do a fun food craft. This one was called a Pajamarama Party and the kids came in their PJs and brought their favorite stuffed animal with them. It was so much fun and the kids all loved it! Here is a list of the things I did:
Read-Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late By Mo Willems
Sang-5 Little Monekys Jumping on the Bed
Read-If Elephants Wore Pants (with the flannel board)
Sang-If you’re Happy and You Know it
Read-Dino VS Bedtime By Bob Shea
Parachute Games-We wiggled it then we threw our stuffed animals on top and shook it like crazy! The kids loved this part and went nuts. Then they got to run and find their animals. I tried doing a “Merry Go Round” by walking in a circle while holding on, but the kids wanted nothing to do with that and just continued to shake it. Oh well, as long as they were having fun! Next time I will be sure to have a whistle or something more than my voice to grab their attention, it got a little noisy.
Craft- Night time mobile. I used our swirl die cut and we attached a moon and stars to it and tied a piece of yarn on top. They liked them!
Food-We made sheep cookies! These of course were a huge hit 🙂
