Play-Doh Tree Faces

Before April Vacation, all of the teachers attended a really cool workshop that explored different ways to reconnect children with nature. One of the activities that we thought the kids would love involved bringing a bunch of play-doh outside and using it to create faces on the trees. They were told to gather any natural supplies they could find around the trees to use as their face's features. This activity really brings out the kid's creative sides while also letting them explore nature.

Craft Fair at Countryside

Kids in all grades participated in Michael and Elif's "Charity Craft Craze" class during the last few months, and they created many beautiful crafts that they sold at our first ever craft fair on Thursday, April 6. 

It was a huge success, and the children raised $208 for the MSPCA. Thanks to everyone who came to the fair and supported the cause!
