Today’s Sunshine Report

The red group began the day making personal flags for the Olympic Games later in the day as well as helping create camp wide Olympic Rings. We also completed an obstacle course to prepare for our event later. After snack we had a blast playing in the Olympic Games created by our yellow and green group. We played soccer, javelin, archery and softball!

The orange group started our day by decorating flags go carry during the opening ceremony of our Olympic games. We also each made a piece for our Sunshine Group Olympic rings. We then had snack and did a session of yoga before our olympics games began! We all had so much fun participating in the games and events put on for us by the yellow and green groups!
Yellow and green group set up and ran the Sunshine Olympics today! We had Olympic Games like hurdles, jumping, throwing, “ice” skating, skiing and snowboarding, baton relay, softball and more! It was a great time seeing all of the Olympians shine!
A reminder for everyone to wear your red t-shirt tomorrow with sneakers! And if you have not handed in your permission slip in, it had to be handed in tomorrow morning!

Let the Olympic Games Begin!

Today’s Sunshine Report

The Red Group was super excited for the second week, which is themed Sports and Olympics Week. We started with a game of popcorn on our parachute and then quickly moved to a game of Olympic kickball. After snack we made some medals and flags for a ceremony tomorrow. We ended the day with water games, freeze dance and an Olympic ring game. We can’t wait to see everybody tomorrow!

The Orange Group started our day with circle, singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game, then we headed to field games, where we played Drip Drip Drop and a Name Game, because we are still trying to learn the names of all our new friends. We then had snack where we read books all about athletes and sports. After, we headed over to arts and crafts where we made Olympic medals and paper bag puppets of athletes! We can’t wait for the Olympic ceremony that the Yellow and Green Groups are putting on tomorrow!

Yellow and Green Groups made Olympic medals, crowns and flags. They played some Olympic-inspired games in the field. They also prepared to host a program-wide Olympic event tomorrow!
