Play Day Plans Sa Kaew and Cha Cheong Sao

Play Day Plans:

Sa Kaew on July 21, 2008

Cha Cheong Sao on July 23, 2008

 

A Play Day is a unique and special event that provides new and exciting play opportunities for children. Play Days are comprised of many different elements of play, offering children a wide variety of play experiences. Play Days are set up as a number of different areas where children can experience different types of play. The Play Days will offer fun, interesting and novel stations to the children at Sa Kaew and Cha Cheong Sao.

 

Program Options

 

Each play day will have either three, or four sites. The FCD staff will choose whether three sites or four sites are better for the Play Days at Sa Kaew and Cha Cheong Sao. Children will rotate in groups between each site. They will spend about 50 minutes at each site, have about ten minutes to drink some water or go to the washroom, and then switch to the next site. Children will be divided into three groups based on their ages. The four stations I will suggest are the Paint Place, Blocks ? Boxes and Building Place, Games Place and Water Place.  The FCD staff can choose a number of different options for the Play Day program. The options are as follows:

 

  1. 1)The FCD staff can choose three of the four suggested stations. In this case, the play day would be about three hours long. There would be three groups of children, and children would rotate stations every hour.
  2. 2)The Play Day would be set up as four different stations. In this case the Play Day would be about four hours long. The groups of children would rotate to each station every hour.
  3. 3)The Play Day would be set up as four different stations. In this case the Play Day would be between three and four hours long. The groups of children would rotate between the Games Place, Paint Place and Boxes ? Blocks and Building Place for the first three hours of the Play Day. All of the children would spend the last 30-60 minutes at the water station.

*Length of time spent at each place can change if FCD staff feels that the time spent at each station is too long.

 

Supervision Options

 

Whan, Pik and Katie will set up and supervise the Play Day. There are two options for how to supervise the Play Day effectively. First, Whan, Pik and Katie could each be assigned to a group. They would rotate each station with their assigned group. For example, if Whan was assigned to the 3-6 year old group, she would move from station to station with the 3-6 year olds. The second option is for Whan, Pik and Katie to be assigned to a station. For example, Pik would be assigned to the Paint Place, and would stay there for the whole day, as different groups of children rotated through. However, the second supervision option would not work if the second program option was chosen.

 

Site Plans

 

*made using IPA Canada PlayDays Guide (www.ipacanada.org)

*FCD staff can choose to include all of the suggested activities at each site in the Sa Kaew and Cha Choeng Sao play days, or the staff can choose to include only some of the ideas suggested.

 

Water Place

 

Things to Do:

-Slip and Slide: A long piece of plastic will be used, approximately twenty feet long. It will be put on the grass, or sloped down a hill. The plastic will be wet, and a little bit of dish soap used to make it slippery.  Children can take turns sliding a long the plastic.

-Squirt bottles and sponges will be available in buckets of water for children to fill and play with.

-Bubbles: Bubble mix will be set out in several different containers. Some of the bubble mix can be dyed different colors. Children can use different wands to try blowing bubbles of all different sizes.

-Face paint: Children will have access to face paint, and water. They can paint on themselves or each other.

-Chalk

 

Materials:

-Access to water, a hose would be preferable for the slip and slide.

-A long sheet of thick, durable plastic (if thick, durable plastic is used ? this slip and slide can be used over and over again).

-Dish soap for the slip and slide

-Bubble mix: a safe, inexpensive way to make a lot of bubble mix is to combine dish soap, water and a little bit of glycerin.

-Food coloring to dye the bubble mixes.

-Bubble wands: old kitchen utensils with holes in them, netting and bent wire (as long as it?s safe) are inexpensive ways to create different types of bubble wands.

-Squirt bottles: recycled water bottles can be used.

-Sponges

-Face paint

-Chalk

 

Animators:

Animators at this station will ensure the safety of the children at play. They will facilitate the slip and slide, as well as to make sure that there are enough materials for all of the children.

 

Space Planning:

Two zones will be clearly marked off for this station. One zone will be the wet zone; this will include the slip and slide, squirt bottles and sponges. Here, a game of drip, drip, drop (similar to duck, duck, goose) can be lead. The other zone will be the dry zone; including the bubbles, chalk and face paint. These zones will be clearly marked; using string, rope or something to mark clear lines, and children will not take materials from the wet zone into the dry zone, or the materials from the dry zone into the wet zone. This way, all children will be comfortable. The slip and slide will need to be placed on a soft surface like grass or sand. It would be best if the slip and slide were set up on a hill.

 

Safety:

Animators will ensure constant supervision of the slip and slide, ensuring that children are taking turns. Animators will ensure that each child has a fair chance to play on the slip and slide, and will also ensure that children play on the slip and slide safely. Animators will ensure that materials do not move between zones. Animators will also ensure, dependant on age, that children are using the bubble wands and face paints safely. Three year old children should not have access to the face paints without adult supervision.

 

Accessibility:

Are there any children with disabilities in Sa Kaew, or Cha Choeng Sao? If so, what are the disabilities ? we can plan to accommodate these children. 

 

Paint Place

 

Things to Do:

-Free painting: large pieces of paper or cardboard will be provided to paint. Children can use their hands, feet or brushes.

-Project painting:

1) Nature prints: Children can collect leaves, rocks, sticks, bugs, vegetables, and other things from the environment and paint onto the object. The children can then stamp the object onto a piece of paper to reveal the print of the object.

2) Garden Rock Painting: Children will be given one rock each. They will be able to paint their rock however they choose. Rocks will be laid out to dry, and once dry will be placed in the garden that supports the Project for the Little Hungry to decorate the garden.

 

Materials:

-Paint (weather proof paint will be needed for rock painting)

-Paper (big and small pieces)

-Brushes

-Sponges (Can be cut into different shapes)

-Access to water

-Dish soap (for washing brushes, sponges, and kids!)

-Rocks

-Somewhere to dry rocks and paintings ? possibly tables

-Containers for brushes, paint and sponges (Recycles coffee cans, water bottles or jugs with the tops cut off, old containers work well).

 

Animators:

Animators will ensure that the supply of materials is accessible to all children. They will also help the children to be creative in their painting projects.

 

Space:

The Paint Place will need to be sectioned off from other places so that children from other stations do not run through the painting area. An area must be marked off where projects can be safely left to dry. Also, a station for washing brushes, sponges and children will need to be set up.

 

Safety:

Younger children will need to be closely supervised while painting. However, children should be allowed to get messy!

 

Accessibility:

Are there any children with disabilities in Sa Kaew, or Cha Choeng Sao? If so, what are the disabilities ? we can plan to accommodate these children. 

 

Blocks, Boxes and Building

 

Things to Do:

-Children can build towers, robots, cars, boats, houses, stores, abstract creations and whatever else they can think of using boxes of all different shapes and sizes.

-Children will have access to string, strong tape, markers and crayons to enhance their creations.

-Children can also try out the FCD block puzzles.

 

Materials:

-Cardboard boxes of all different shapes and sizes (We should be able to collect recycle boxes from grocery stores, and other businesses).

-Cardboard tubes (recycled from toilet paper rolls, wrapping paper and other items).

-Tape (Strong tape like duct tape or packing tape is best).

-Scissors

-String/Rope

-Markers and crayons

-FCD block puzzles

-2 tables

-Containers for markers and crayons

 

Animators:

Animators will ask leading questions to help stir the children?s creativity. They will also lead by example or suggest alternative ideas when needed.

 

Space Planning:

A large space will need to be sectioned off to allow for the children to create as big of projects as they would like. The zone will need to be sectioned off using string or rope so that materials do not leave the area. A space in the center of the station will be for materials. A table may work well where scissors, markers, crayons, string and tape can be left. The FCD block puzzles need have their own area, so as not to get destroyed where children are making other creations.

 

Safety:

Depending on the age of the children, animators will decide who is allowed to use the scissors. Animators will make sure that children and using the materials in a safe manner.

 

Accessibility:

Are there any children with disabilities in Sa Kaew, or Cha Choeng Sao? If so, what are the disabilities ? we can plan to accommodate these children. 

 

Games Place

 

Things to Do:

-Cooperative Games: A board listing several games will be provided for the children (Approximately twelve games). The children may choose any game from the list, which they wish the play; the objective being to try to play as many of the games on the list as possible. Children can also suggest their own games that they would like to play. Games like Human Knot, Extreme Rock Paper Scissors, Dodge ball, Three Goal Soccer and Four Corners will be on the list. (*Games requiring the least amount of equipment will be best)

-Free play: A variety of equipment will be provided for children to play with (Hula hoops, rings, balls, and more?). They are free to play whatever they would like.

-Large board games will also be available to play with; a checkers board made on poster paper (rocks can be used as the pieces), Hop Scotch made with chalk, and others.

 

Materials:

*Depend on the games chosen.

 

Animators:

Animators will lead the games listed on the board, encouraging the children to try all of the games. Animators will modify the games based on the age and ability of the children.

 

Space Planning:

A large space will be required to allow for big group games such as a field, court, or large room. This space will need to be sectioned off so that materials from this station do not leave, and so that children from this station are not running into children outside of this station.

 

Safety: All equipment should be picked up, and put into a box or area before each new group arrives to play. Games should be modified based on age and skill level of the children.

 

Accessibility: Are there any children with disabilities in Sa Kaew, or Cha Choeng Sao? If so, what are the disabilities ? we can plan to accommodate these children. 

 

Time Consideration:

The FCD staff will choose to divide the time at this station in half, or two thirds and one third. The first half, or two thirds of the time will be spent play cooperative group games from the list, the second half, or last third of the time can be spent at free play and large board games.

Example:

1:00-1:25pm- Cooperative Games

1:25-1:50pm- Free Play and Board Games

 

Or

1:00-1:35pm-Cooperative Games

1:35-1:50pm-Free Play
