Here Comes Peter Cottontail…

We celebrated Easter last week by participating in fun, traditional holiday celebrations. Our friends decorated eggs, traced and paintedΒ drawings of eggs, pin-pricked paperΒ eggs and decorated them with assorted craft supplies, dyed Easter eggs, and ended the week with our annual HBMH Easter Egg Hunt!Β

Of course, Floppy had to make a photo appearance. Our very own Easter bunny!

All of the Easter eggs were donated from our families — thank you for making this event special!

These colorful, pin-pricked eggs adorned our walls all throughout the week.

Meet Floppy! Our Newest Apple Community Member

Today, Ms. Patti surprised everyone with our newest Apple classroom pet…Floppy! Floppy is a 7 month old, extremely gentle and loving rabbit. Our friends welcomed Floppy with open arms. We discussed proper care etiquette and the right/wrong way to pet him. So far, he’s adjusted to the new environment wonderfully!

We learned how to gently pet Floppy using two fingers.

We take turns watching our new friend as he settles into his home.

Our Apple friends were so calm and quiet as Floppy explored his new environment. He stopped by everyone individually to give them a sniff and a “bunny kiss”.

Welcome to your new home, sweet Floppy.
