Circus Week - Older Toddler

Posted by [email protected] on May 26, 2022 at 2:55 PM

Circus Week

What a great learning experience this week! Mostly all the children did not know about the "Circus". We watched short videos of all the circus acts, animals and yummy food you eat at the circus. By the end of the week, the children were naming animals, foods and the famous "Ring Master".


The children made paper plate clown and clown hats by gluing materials to make a clown face and decorations for hats, we made popcorn bags and glued the word "popcorn" and decorated with red/white striped paper and red glitter, and the children made "cotton Candy" tubes gluing on cotton balls on paper tubes.


The children practiced counting with jumbo plastic popcorn counters and popcorn paper bags for one-to-one counting, we used colored ice cream scoops and ice cream bowls to stack, count , name colors and make color patterns with the scoops, clown hats with dots and colored chips for matching colors and counting how many chips on filled the hat and circus paper cone hats and pom-poms for filling and counting, dumping and naming colors, and Bingo matching grid boards.

Motor Development

The children practiced with opening and closing animal chip clips and clipped them on popcorn buckets, scoops with popcorn counters and popcorn boxes to practice working the handles by open/clos motions, we used circus tickets to drop in circus box to push in with fingers, pull out and lift boxes to gather the tickets, and small colored stacking plastic glasses to make towers/pyramids/building/castles etc....
