Mystery Box: Inside our polka dotted box, we found a cute little purple SHOPPING bag!
Prop Song: We Went Shopping
We went shopping, we went shopping!
Now we’re back! Now we’re back!
We’ve got lots of goodies, we’ve got lots of goodies
In our sack, in our sack!
(tune: Frere Jacques)
What is in our shopping bag? Pizza!! Who likes pizza? Cookies! Yum! Anyone like waffles? How about a banana (not pictured)? Wow, we bought some good things today!
Books We Read:
Maisy Goes Shopping- Cousins
We’re Going to the Farmer’s Market- Page
Flannel Board: Five Big Ice Creams
5 big ice creams down at the shop
Cold and sweet with sprinkles on the top
Lion comes along with a penny to pay
He buys an ice cream and eats it right away!
Giraffe, Elephant, Monkey and Zebra also purchased ice cream cones today!
Craft: Shopping Maisy
I printed coloring pics of Maisy with a shopping cart onto card stock. I cut, folded and taped them to create a little pouch in the back. Kids colored objects from a Lucy Cousins coloring sheet, then adults cut them into squares and we put them in the "cart".
Two decent sized groups today and I loved this theme, especially the song for the mystery box prop song! My boss jokingly suggested putting a credit card in the mystery box for today's theme! My husband also suggested some cute alternate lyrics for the song as well, like "We went shopping, we went shopping! Now we're broke! Now we're broke!" LOLOL!
Kids seemed to LOVE the ice cream flannel board. I made little munching noises after each animal chose an ice cream. The food props are from some Lakeshore Learning Color and Shape Boxes we bought a while back -- so cute! Great day!
