Sun Salutions


Dog Face Down

Hibernation: Did you know?

Koi fish hibernate too by sinking towards the bottoms of their ponds to rest while the top layer of their ponds are frozen over.

K is for Koi!

Painting, slowly and meticulously!

She shares; "I never heard of a Koi Fish."

We learn something new EVERYDAY!

I have to say, I love when the little tongue comes out because it means, this is some serious business I'm working on here! LOL

Spoken honestly, "I love preschool!"

L is for Lemur


Hibernation: Did you know?

The Fat Tailed Lemur hibernates too. They use the reserved "fat" in their tails to provide themselves with nutrition while they sleep. 


 

Our hibernating theme was a big hit this past week. We made a "stuffed bear". The process was so much fun. So, to continue the question.....


"Did you know?"

Bears can hibernate up to 6 or more months. They eat lots of food before its time to hibernate. They then slow down their heart rate and breathing and find a safe and warm cave or den to sleep until food begins to grow again during the spring months.

Never wake a sleeping bear, they may be grouchy!

Adding embellishments to her little bear. We continued and colored a back outline too. Once dried, we stapled the two together, all while stuffing the insides with poly-fill. Then we painted a bear cave.  When it dried, we cut an opening and added our little bear. This was so much fun!

Coloring the back of the bear.


Well, we just saw work from Thanksgiving thru the beginning of the winter months. Until our next blogging post.
