Burnham Bunch: Pizza

Happy to be back after a week of spring ‘break’. I decided on a pizza theme for today. Because, seriously, who doesn’t LOVE pizza!? We read a cute book by Frank Asch about Baby Bear having his first pizza. We sang a The Silly Pizza Song (didn’t get pictures of that flannel board, errr) But, you can find the words here.

Our craft today? A slice of pizza! Yummmmm, now I am getting hungry.

Burnham Girls: Lipgloss and Gossip

As we sat down to our delicious chocolate chip cookies from the Bridgewater Village Store, I overheard the girls talking about why another girl wasn’t attending today. ALL their stories were different and it led to a perfect discussion on gossip. It’s like a game of telephone and as  people add their insights, biases, and prejudices a simple story becomes one of legends.

The recipe only uses three ingredients and can be found on Your Homebased Mom: coconut Oil, un-petroleum jelly and Crystal Light mix. Super-easy! I found that my gloss came out perfect … but the girls’ gloss wouldn’t set? I am hoping that a little refrigeration will help that along! We discussed the many of uses of coconut oil … and the girls had an amazing time running it through their hair (sorry moms and dads!)

Burnham Bunch: Chicks

We read two books about chicks today: There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick by Lucille Collandro  and Chicks Run Wild by Sudipta Bardhan. Our flannel board was all about our silly Old Lady … boy does she like to eat some crazy stuff! Craft today: Chicks!
