We’re thinking about kindness, gratitude, and sharing this week at PLAY. Hope you’ll join us for some special activities (below). After such a difficult week, and the hardships that continue for so many of our friends and neighbors affected by the wildfires, we hope you and your families are safe and well

Reminder: We’ll be closed the entire week of Thanksgiving (11/19-11/24).
Thanks & hope to see you at PLAY—

PLAY music: “There’s A Little Wheel”

In the PLAY music adaptation of the traditional song, “There’s A Little Wheel ‘a Turnin’ In My Heart,” we use the song as a mirror. After the traditional first verse, we create verses about what’s going on around us in class. This small act of shifting focus from inward (a verse about me) to outward (a verse about you) is a way to touch on empathy. It’s also fun, and easy to try at home.

Check out our award-winning PLAY music recordings (including “There’s A Little Wheel”) on SoundCloud.

Messy Mixed Media: Culinary Collage

This week in Messy Mixed Media (ages 2-5), we’re serving up some family style collage materials, practicing our tearing skills on some rainbow lettuce, and painting with our forks. Our workspace: A communal table where painting on the table cloth is allowed (and encouraged).
