For our holiday story times we combine all three of our groups together to make things a little easier. This included our Lapsit (Birth - 18 months), Toddler (18 - 36 months), and Preschool (3-6 yr. old) groups. We had an amazing turnout with some super awesome costumes.
Mrs. Alicia started off the festivities by introducing special guest Mrs. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus ( Pssst... It was ME!) to read the story for the day, Pumpkin Trouble by Jan Thomas.
Next Mrs. Alicia did Five Little Pumpkins sitting on a gate with the assistance of her mitten and five pumpkins.
Finally, Fancy Nancy (Mrs. Jillian) joined the story time to help us sing some pumpkin tunes.
This was followed by snacks, sparkle juice, and crafts. Mrs. Alicia had bags they could make to pick up their loot when they went on the parade later. Mrs. Jillian had black paper plate wreaths that they glued ghosts and pumpkins on and I had Paper Plate Ghost crafts.
For the finale we took a parade up and down both floors and stopped by each desk to get a special treat and see all the other staffers all dressed up. Everyone was wonderful and did a great job helping out!
And for a special treat here is a picture of the Garden Variety Mrs. Frizzle and Fancy Nancy:
