The pig slaughter and carnival organized for the second time this year was held at 16-17 February. The time we spent together was constructive not only because we practiced our traditions but also because we were close to nature. The weather was great, as if it was already spring. We also took a trip with a horse cart. The theme of carnival was “The Bear,” so after lunch we dressed up like bears and the party started. The kind, enthusiastic musicians created a happy, friendly atmosphere. We played games and sang songs about the bear and the carnival. After a good sleep we took a walk at “Varjúvár”. The air was fresh, we breathed it in deeply with pleasure, and we saw how the winter said goodbye.
Although winter is here to stay, following the hungarian traditions we decided to banish winter. The purpose is to make as much fun and noise as possible by setting up a carnaval mood. We established the old traditions during carnaval period and choose to follow them in many ways. We digged out the carnaval mascaras and costumes and recalled the songs and rhymes. We also got to know the classical music from Camille Saint-Saëns called The carnaval of the animals. And created a lot of fantasy figures from shapes. The focus was on preparing a carnaval mood in every possible ways making it interesting and enjoyable!

The Green Earth themed camp for primary school students was a succesful experience. Despite the rainy weather conditions we had the opportunity to play outside and inside as well. Experiencing composting, it’s effects and benefits was helpful to understand how this factor works. Practising selectiv garbage collection from reusable waste was exited. Children had many great ideas on how to reuse different things. Taking care of the new seedlings was a challenge, watching it grow, waiting. We also had the chance to distinguish weeds from other useful plants. Go Green!!!
This year in the autumn break children can attend our Board games themed camp. We offer indoor and outdoor boardgaming opportunities for children who choose to take a meanfull break. It’s the perfect opportunity for children to socialize in a non tiring way, since they are living their most active time in their lifes. The lounging corner, the reading time, crafting table are other possibilities to have a good time in our home. If the weather is kind with us, activities are to be held in the garden, enjoying the sun and fresh air!!! We are waiting for everyone who is curious, friendly, and willing to jump in the game!!!!
Autum’s surrounding treasures make it worthy of celebrating. Taking advantage of this opporunity, the members of the daycare, it’s personal and guests had the time of their live on a beautiful autumn day. While the gulash was boiling guests were attending exciting games or peeking into the daycare. This experience uploaded everyone to last for the rainy weekdays.

Climbing trees, discovering the pumpkins, snails and nuts, our garden’s treasures enforces bonding with nature. This is how we live in our homey daycare in October.
This time we had the opportunity for parents to meet and get to know each other. We got the chance to work on our flower garden, to use gardening tools, and also to make beautiful crafts out of organic materials. Eating a lot of fruits was our first step to a healthy lifestyle, so we made a habit of it. We are into making our kindergarten as homey as possible!!!
