Protecting our (Baby Dolls') Bodies!

North Carolina certainly has an interesting weather system that fluctuates regularly so it is important for us to be constantly learning how to take care of our bodies. Last week it was quite cold, with the ice from the previous weekend melting, our activities in Team Woods centered around taking care of our bodies in cold weather. We read Under my Hood, I Have a Hat which goes through all the clothing one wears in winter with several classes including the Super Heroes, Eloquent Elephants, Rocketeers, and Magnificent Mini’s. Afterwards we delved into dressing our baby dolls for winter using fabric, string, pipe cleaners and scissors. The fun and adorableness quickly ensued, I will let the pictures and quotes speak for themselves about what happened:

Owen focused for a long time on cutting this very large piece of fabric
into smaller pieces to dress his baby doll.

"I'm a pink chef!"- Olivia

Ethan made sure to give a shirt to keep
his baby's tummy warm

"I need to cover all her knees"- Adelaide
Elise decided she would make beautiful summer clothes for her baby!
Lucy was excited to dress her bunny
for winter. And focused on keeping
the ears warm!
A few other fun quotes:
"I made a hole for my baby to fit its head through"- R
"I made a ninja baby"- W
"I am going to use a pipe cleaner by myself"- Hazel

All of the kids were proud about what they were able to make with their hands. There were moments of frustration and times when they asked for help but many of the children were happy and excited to do it by themselves, feeling empowered to help their dolls.
