Today in 🍂 Artful Fall Big Kids Club 🍂we met the artist Pablo Picasso!.
.
His work was inspired by his life and experiences 🎨. We learned that he expressed his sadness and love 💌 through his paintings and this can be seen by his choice of colors, blue 💙 for sadness and pink for love 💞. Later in his life he explored cubism and how to pain people's moods😩😖😊 😤😳
.
Today we made a collage with a range of cold and warm colors and various shapes to show a contrast of possible expressions 🔺 and made our own portraits👩🐮
.
What an incredible day! We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at @storybookbuddings

Today in 🍂Artful Fall Big Kids Club 🍂 we explored light!.
.
It was the perfect day to go outside and and see the wide range of colors that nature 🌿 has to offer.
.
We went for a walk and took with us the color filters that we have at Buddings. How interesting was it to see the world in yellow 💡, red 🍅 blue 💙 and green 🍏!.
.
We also made our own homemade kaleidoscopes 🌐 out of recycled materials and we played more with light and colors! 🔦
.
These activities were inspired by the the incredible stained glass windows of Antoni Gaudí's Sagrada Família in Barcelona! ⭐.
.
Next week we will be introducing the works and life of Pablo Picasso 🎨. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at @storybookbuddings! ~Aïda~

Happy Halloween to 🎃 everyone!.
.
Today in our 🍂 Artful Fall Big Kids Club 🍂 we celebrated by making spiders and visiting with all of our Storybook friends! Everyone had such amazing costumes!.
.
Faces were painted and games were played! We had the spookiest of days! We learned that we scream when we are scared, but also when we are surprised...
.
Everyone had their chance to be a part of the scariest of paintings, 'Scream' by the well known artist Edvard Munch!.
.
Thank you everyone for coming over and we're excited to have you next week when we get a visit from the amazing artist Picasso! ~Aïda~

Today in🍂Artful Fall Big Kids Club 🍂we became real architects! Following Antoni Gaudí's designs and work💡, we built our own city and discovered everything about his mosaic technique!
.
Houses 🏠, tall buildings🏢, colors🎨 and all of the patterns from nature🌳 were present! Buses 🚨 and cars 🚗🚙 were not missing either!.
.
We even made our own houses 🏡 out of recycled boxes 🆒 and added our own handmade dyed pasta! Good job!
.
Wow and it was really impressive when all the big kids made their own tiles out of recycled ♻️CD 💛! We compared them with regular tiles and it was hard to tell the difference❗.
.
Finally, there was also the weekly color experiment! 🎨 Swipe up and check out the result!.✅
.
Thank you so much everyone! We can't wait to see you tomorrow at Storybook for a spooky Halloween 🎃! ~Aïda~

Today in 🍂 Artful Fall Big Kids Club 🍂we went on a Field Trip to Circus Play Cafe!🎪
.
Mostly of the kids knew this amazing place and were so excited to go back! 🎢.
.
Circus Play Cafe is on Commercial Drive and 12th and is an incredible cafe with an indoor children's 👭 play area! Our Big Kids had fun going down the slide, figuring out the busy boards and even learning to sail! ⛵
.
This place was great at bringing out the big kids curiosity and it is full of resources that encouraged dramatic play and socialization! 👪
.
🎨 Talking about art, this field trip brought us to a neighborhood full of street art! How cool was finding some mosaics on the ground that reminds us Gaudí's techniques?!.
.
Thank you so much Tomomi for joining us today! We are looking forward to seeing you next week!😊 Let's keep discovering the magic of Antoni Gaudí and his work! ~Aïda~

This week in our 🍂 Artful Fall Big Kids Club 🍂 we explored the work and art of ANTONI GAUDÍ: architect, designer and best known representative of Catalan Modernisme also known as Art Nouveau!🌺 🌱
.
All of Gaudí's work is based on nature's 🌳 forms, that's why all the shapes in his art look so familiar to us! We put the chairs in the shape of an S, like the benches in Parc Güell, and we found that it looks like a snake! 🐍 This long bench was made so that people can face each other when they talk! Also so natural!.
.
And wow! There is a funny salamander in that park! Its colors brought us to experiment with some mosaics techniques! We dyed pasta and used them to color in a picture in Gaudi's style. We also made some Casa Batlló chimneys!🆙 This artist used his imagination to the utmost as can be seen in his buildings.🌇
.
We have so many projects to do and Gaudí and Barcelona have never ending stories to tell! 'm personally so happy to share a part of my culture with all these Big Kids!.
.
Looking forward to seeing you next week! @storybookbuddings ~Aïda~

We had a Science Big Kids Club today at Storybook. We learnt EVAPORATION and WATER CYCLE. The lyrics of the song we listen every week is included the word of evaporation. Therefore, kids knew the word.
.
Then, when teacher Yuka asked “Where does water come from?” Buddies replied “it comes from pipes.” You have a point but it’s not completely correct.
.
After watching a short video about water cycle, we made a chart with friends. Here it is! When a buddy put a droplet, he told us ”This is Mr. Funny silly droplet!” .
.
After that, we tried some experiments about evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. The most hit experiment with kids was “HOW CLOUDS MAKE RAIN.” Buddies rained a lot of colours of rain into a jar!
.
Lastly, I asked them the same question I asked at the beginning. “Where does water come from?” Kids replied “From the ocean!!!😤😤😤😤” That’s perfect answer!👏🏻Water goes around!🔄🌍
.
👩‍🔬The Science BKC next Tuesday is field trip day!!! We are going to Sunset Park and doing some experiments from 1-4pm. Please come join us!
If it’s raining, don’t forget your rain boots and rain jacket :)

What happened to all the Dinosaurs?
When the meteor hits the earth, there's an earthquake and ... VOLCANOES!!
.
.
We made Mud Dough for our mountain using coffee grounds. It turned into magic playdough with muddy texture and coffee smell ! .
.
Then we tested it out on some Dinosaur footprints. It was the perfect consistency to leave behind clues for future paleontologists ...
.
.
After building our mountain around a cup, we poured in the magic vinegar .. and BOOM! The lava flows outtt! The temperature change became too much for the Dinosaurs .. and they all went extinct 😮! .
.
Wait a second .. isn't the temperature of the earth changing rapidly as well?
Join us next Monday at Storybook Buddings to find out about how we can prevent animals we love (like Dinosaurs) from going extinct 😍

Who's bigger than who?
This week we tackle the correlation between size, weight and .. attitude??
.
I love how Hyewon Kyung's book shows our buddies that..
1. There's always a bigger fish in the sea
2. It's not about size (or weight), it's all about learning to play with all kinds of friends!

We went to UBC to find skeletons of the biggest whale, a smaller minke whale, a smaller sea lion and an even smaller dolphin! We proved our theory and concluded that they're all equally awesome.

Let's ask more questions with Dig Deep, Mondays 1-4pm at Storybook Buddings ! - Kezia

What does the T-Rex see?
Imagine being as tall as a T-Rex!
On Mondays at Storybook Buddings we learn about our prehistoric friends through asking lots of scientific questions.
Can we high-five a T-Rex?
Can a Dinosaur be blue and yellow and green? (And purple at the same time?)
Will the Stegosaurus choose a lemon over Steak?
Find out more with Dig Deep, Mondays 1-4pm at Storybook Buddings !

This week at Buddings 🍁ARTFUL FALL🍁 Big Kids Club:

Draw

Associate

Learn

Ideas

We started this season class talking about the elements of art looking at some Salvafor Dalí's paintings. 🎨There were so many shapes, colors and...wait, elephants with long legs? Why?! Because that way the animals were half way to the sky and the ground!🐘
.
Dalí was famous for creating surreal art, it means inspired by dreams! When he learned something new he could see the picture of it on his head and painted it!.⭐
.
The big kids tried to sleep and have this amazing dream and talk about it! Some of them had great ones, others didn't have any. That's ok! Not everyone remembers their dreams!.🌉
.
We also read a book about the little Salvi and saw a lot of eggs! Dalí said that painting is like cooking and looking at a painting was like eating! For him, fried eggs were a beauty! Also bread was like imagination, he needed both to live!.
.
That's why we can find food in his paintings! Did you know that the famous melting clocks were inspired by melting cheese?! Time melts like a dream! Our Big Kids wanted to be inspired too so we cooked Dalí''s favourite recipe! Yum!.🍳
.
Everybody was ready to draw some long elephant legs!.
.
Great job! Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at Storybook Buddings! Dalí has a new challenge for us!.🎨

The adventure continues!

This fall season 🍂Big Kids Club🍁presents:🌎All About Us🌎

Together we will celebrate others, ourselves, and develop a sense of personal expression.
Today we traveled to UBC to visit the Museum of Anthropology.
Commuting by bus, and then on foot, together we trekked.

We found ourselves accompanied by towering trees and lush terrain. A woodsy scent lingered in the air, “What was here before all these buildings?” After enjoying a tasty snack, it was time to head inside the museum. Instantly we were immersed in Indigenous culture. The children’s faces lit up as we moved from exhibit to exhibit. “Look! This way! We have to see that!” With a map of hands on artifacts provided by the museum, we found ourselves on a quest to seek out what we could feel and interact with next.
As our time at the museum came to a close, we all seemed to be thinking the same thing. “Can we stay longer?” Thank you to the @moa_ubc for this insightful experience.
Tune in next week as we continue down the path of self discovery 🔎
