This week in storytime we celebrated
We talked about our favorite flavors:
Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate.
I made very simple felt sugar cones and single scoops in lots of colors. Each child participated building up their favorite ice cream cone. As we sang:
Ice cream, Ice cream Piled High.............
Ice cream, Ice cream touch the sky ..........
We finished our creations with Cherries on Top!!!
I shared these stories with my 2 year olds:
And I also shared this story with my 3 year olds:
We also celebrated our love for ice cream by singing and playing with Debi Derryberry's Song: Scoops of Ice Cream.
Each child was given a paper water cup covered with brown paper ~ to resemble an ice cream cone. In a plastic baggie they each received 10 poms poms. First, I had the kids count out their ten "scoops" in a row. Then as I played the song, they placed each "scoop" inside their "cone."
We all had a marvelous time and since we were only playing with pom pom scoops and not real ice cream scoops, we didn't get Tummy Aches.
See you next week!
