Welcome to Episode 1 of the 8 Winter Camp Blog series called:
How about we call it…
The Incredibly Exciting Countdown to Winter Camp Adventures. Join us in our exciting blogging adventure where we get ready for lots of fun, games, detective work, contests & research as we countdown to our creative and fun Winter Camps at 4Cats! (writing appear in hand writing?)
We thought this is a better name than, "Get Ready for Winter Camps." Agree?
If you have been to the studio lately you may notice that we are REALLY into Christmas Decorating.
If you are one of our Exploratory class families that were at the studio for Our Trim the Tree Celebration last Sunday. THANK YOU! We all had so much fun! What's that? You want to see all the trees we created? Ok! Watch this video!
The trees look soooooo beautiful! Side note: The matching ornament of you made of you will be available for pick up by this Friday at the studio!
That being said said, we just want to say a heartfelt sorry to all the kids who's self -control is being seriously tested by the REAL Candy Canes in the trees. We had one little girl say, "Why are you doing this, now all I can think of is wanting a candy cane!”
We understand your pain. We love the peppermint ones but seriously, really love the cherry flavour ones!
Speaking of candy canes, it is time for a detective game and coincidentally, this is also today's contest!
On this winter camp page there is a mouse with a CANDY CANE!
They look like this…
Aren't they adorable??? Awwwww....
Let's start with a fun introduction to our winter camp page!
This part is for the kids...
When you find the mouse on the camp page, you will be entered to win the cutest little mouse in the history of mice Ditto Oven Bake Clay Kit!
Once you found our little furry, cute mouse friend to enter all you have to do is:
1. Be registered for winter camp.
2. Go to our chat in the bottom right corner - see it over there.
And say... By golly, I did it! I found the mouse!! Enter me to win! I am a fabulous detective!(Then tell us where it is!)
3. Comment below telling us you have sent your secret message to chat but please, NO SPOILERS! Do not write the answer in the comments, I repeat do not write the answer in the comments.
And if you really love mice, you can PRINT a mouse colouring sheet here or pick one up at the studio. After you colour it in, you can bring it back to the studio and we will hang it up for all to see and oooo and ahhhh over!
So how else can we keep busy as we count down the days to camp you ask?
