COVID-19 Week 10 Survival Guide:
1. Memorial Day is Coming
• This week can be spent on art activities to celebrate Memorial Day. The goal is to let children know that we appreciate everyone, but this day is for the military
• Dress up your child for dramatic play to celebrate Memorial week (red white and blue).
• Good time to discuss water and beach safety, if you plan to go to the beach
• Talk about the colors and shapes in the American flag and what the flag represents
2. Activity Planner
• Make a flag or drawing or any creative project that incorporates Blue, Red, White, Stars and Stripes.
• Continue making cards for the Hoboken Police Department to show our appreciation for service workers.
• Often you do not have everything you need for a baking recipe and items are hard to find during COVID-19. Celebrations In The Kitchen offers a solution by delivering a right out of the box baking and decorating kits. The kits include things that kids like, such as Themed Cookie Decorating, Cupcake Baking from Scratch, Cake Decorating, Classic Cookie Dough, and Rainbow Cookie Dough! All products are nut-free, and allergy-friendly options are available. Kits are designed to provide extraordinary baking fun for kids while being stress-free for parents.
