We celebrated the Queen's birthday and diamond jubilee at Discovery this week. Our Mountaineers and children from the local kindy (who joined us for a visit) had a great time learning about the Queen and her family, the Union Jack, and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - 60 years since she became queen.
Sparklebox. I loved our kiwiana wrapping paper and bought it especially for the Queen to enjoy (We will write a letter to the Queen later this week and I will take photos of our presents to include).
We coloured in the Union Jack, this child is only four - I think he did an amazing job! We also hung numbered Union Jack Flag bunting on ribbon.
We coloured in birthday cards for the Queen.
Check out the 'Carrot Tree' we made for the Easter Bunny.
We folded paper to make origami dogs, we discovered that the Queen loves corgis. I used these instructions.
We had an imaginary birthday party for the Queen, including birthday cups of pretend tea.
It was fantastic to have Totara Park Kindergarten visit us. My class really enjoyed seeing their old friends from kindy and loved the opportunity to show the younger children their classroom and all of the cool things they have done at school.
