What an exciting week of visitors!
On Monday we had Mika and Liam come to Tree Frog with the fun and exciting Travelling Puppet Show thanks to Salt Spring Island Public Library, and funded by IslandLink Library Federation and Young Canada Works. The children were enchanted by the magic of the puppets and the stories they were used to tell! Liam and Mika held their complete attention with their enthusiasm and encouraged the children to participate by speaking with the puppets. Following the show, the children had an opportunity to "meet" the puppets- to touch them and interact with them, before moving on to a puppet making activity also provided by Mika and Liam.
Thank you very much to the Liam & Mika, Salt Spring Island Public Library, IslandLink Library Federation and Young Canada Works for bringing this great show to us!
Check back soon for photos of the fun!
On Thursday we will be having a visit from Tree Frog's very first Coordinator, Anne Hohmann. Anne and her family left Salt Spring years ago to sail the world before settling in New Zealand. She is currently here for a holiday and will be coming back to The Frog for a visit and to deliver cards from the children of Parua Bay Childcare Centre (known colloquially as Pukeko Place.) We will be sending her home with cards and letters of our own to begin our Friends Across the Miles Pen Pals relationship. We are all looking forward to sharing our Salt Spring way of life, and to learning more about life in New Zealand from our new friends!
