Zoo week in the sunflower class camp

We celebrated Mazali’s birthday by baking pink cupcakes, making her a Jewelry box and birthday crown. We sang happy birthday and ate the delicious cupcakes.


For our animal theme this week the children enjoyed playing with the farm house toy animals and sand old mc Donald with animal puppets.

The children glued loose parts on their fish. They also glued on black and white foam paper on to a plate and made zebra masks.

The zoo came to visit camp. The children got to hear facts about the animals and touch some of them.

The children ate teddy bear graham cookies for snack in honor of Zoo week.

The children love using their imagination while playing with their friends.

Riding bikes,scooters and bouncing on bouncy balls is a good way to work on our gross motor skills.

The children squished their hands into shaving cream during water play. They used sponges to wash cars and spray bottle to clean it off. They cooled off with a ices treat.

The children used animal foam shapes and painting outside with foam paint. It was fun to wash out hands off in the water table and watch the water change colors.

For our zoo theme week we made a snake out of beads. The children are so good stringing the beads onto the land yard.

Play dough time

We had a camp wide Shabbat with Rabbi Mischel. We sang Shabbat songs while listening to the guitar. We lit the candles ,drank grape juice,ate challah and had a special Shabbat treat.

Summer went by so fast. We all had a blast. We will miss everyone. Hope to see everyone for Camp Cochavim 2020.

Shabbat Shalom,

Beach week in the sunflower camp class

The children really enjoyed art time this week. They made many beach themed projects. They glued fish onto a fish bowl and poured sand on to it. They poured different colored sand and made a sand necklace. They were so proud to wear their necklaces. They also made a beach in a bottle. Pealing and sticking on fish stickers to the bottles, pouring sand and sea shells into the water bottle really made us feel like we were at the beach.

In honor of our counselor Klilah’s birthday we baked a beach theme cake. The children measured, poured and took turns mixing the ingredients. We added blue food coloring to represent the ocean. We joined the sprouts class for a picnic birthday party. The children ate the delicious cake as well as an ice cream treat for our carnival day.

Carnival day was so much fun. The children jumped in the bounce house. Played all kinds of carnival game like ring toss. Took pictures in our photo booth and got their faces painted.

The children gave the lemonade drink for carnival day a thumbs up.

The children’s imagination grew during play time when they used the toy tools to fix the doll house. Reading stories, riding the scooters and bikes was enjoyed by all.

During circle time the boys shared their tzitut to make a bracha and kiss it.

During water play the children had fun squishing their hands into the blue food coloring that was mixed into the shaving cream. They washed toy cars with soap,water and sponges. The car wash has become a very popular game at water play.

For beach week we made moon sand. The children poured and mixed flour and baby oil into a container and […]

Beach week at Sprout Camp

The children had a wonderful day on Monday celebrating beach week at sprout camp. We started off with water play and welcome to our new camper Boaz. It was cool outside today so the children enjoyed playing for a while at the water table, sprinklers and cars. Then we came inside to dry off and have our delicious snack together. After snacktime we went into the art room to paint a treasure box present for Ami who turned two on Sunday. We will celebrate his birthday together tomorrow. Since it’s beach week the children also went fishing in a mock fish tank with colorful rings made from a pool noodle. The children had a wonderful time scooping up the rings and catching them with wooden spoons and other utensils. We finished off the day in our exploration room where the children played with the sand table boxes of beans giggled together on the slide and played hide and seek in a tent. We had a great day together. p

On Tuesday at camp we started off with water play, but filled the tables with liquid soap to make suds to wash the cars. We also had a fun time coloring the water with food coloring, to make green, blue, red, orange and yellow water. The kids had a great time playing with the suds and washing no cars and each other. Then we came inside to dry off and celebrate Ami’s Two-year-old birthday with a special treat of marshmallow rice crispy bars with sprinkles. The children really enjoyed singing to him and giving him a beautifully decorated tzedkah box that they made themselves. Then we made lemonade with the children since it’s beach week. The […]

We had a great time playing in the exploration room in the afternoon with the sand table and buckets of dried beans.It was a great day at camp,

The children had a fabulous day at camp on Wednesday. We started off in the shade of the playground. The children played with balls and chalk and bubbles and had a great time.

Then we came inside for snacktime and enjoyed some quiet playtime with our classroom toys and books. Since it was Wednesday we […]
