4th of July Fun

Better late than never…I have to share a few photos taken last week during our Independence Day Celebration in our Primary Community. As part of our Summer Camp Theme “Natural Art”, our friends used recycled items to create holiday decorations. What a fun way to celebrate our country’s independence!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail…

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

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!
