11th February first day for the year.

The first day of the year went well. There were a number of activities both inside and out with games of twister dodge ball and twister scram. The art activity involved making a grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.

Centuries ago in Western Europe, far from any village, faithful shepherds tending their flocks decorated grottos – cave-like openings – and used them as a place to kneel and pray homage to Our Lady and Jesus.

The children continued that devotion to Our Lady by creating their own special grotto using icypole sticks semi-precious stones and cardboard to recall the colorful crystal formations often found in ancient grottos.

The idea came via MARIAN GROTTO CRAFT KIT- OUR LADY OF LOURDES-Catholic Child Catalog
