Sea Star Newsletter

May 15 – 19, 2017


I learned a lot on our trip to Africa. My favorite was watching the kids embrace using “what we have” to make jewelry, art, toys… The creative juices were flowing! The kids made newspaper balls with lots of tape. They worked well for basketball, football and soccer. We made cars out of toilet paper tubes, sticks and lids. Now when the kids have a lid left over from a snack item they say, “save this to use as a wheel.” Love it!

Our new theme is BUGS! We will explore bugs in many different ways. Yes, we often think, “Ahhh, yuck!” But when you really check them out, they are pretty cool! If you find any cool bugs please bring them in and we will put them in a bin to check out.

  • Monday and Friday – Feed the Homeless Service Project. PLEASE DONATE CANNED GOODS.
