PROJECT "LITHUANIA AND THE WORLD"
We have chosen to do this project in February. For Lithuania this month is very important because we have lot of special dates and events. Two weeks we dedicated to know Lithuania better and two weeks we dedicated to know better the whole world.
Firstly we celebrated the St. Blažiejus - Linen day.
We introdused with Linen way. Tasted flax oil and linseeds. We were able to see some linen clothes.
St. Agota's - Bread day
It was really special day. Kids brought their favourite bread to share with each other. Some of them baked bread at home and brought to kindergarten not only to share and taste it but explained the whole recipe and the way the bread was baked.
Shrovetide day (Pancake day)
We saw the fight of Greasy (winter) and Hemp (spring). It is traditional Lithuanian way to celebrate the Shrovetide day. And after that we had the pancake party.
February 16th is Lithuania Birthday
This year we decided to celebrate this day in a very special way. We made little gifts to passerbys in a city. The whole kindergarten went to the Cathedral square to sing the songs and play Lithuanian games and give our handmade gifts to passerbys. For this innovation and ideas have been seen, we were invited to the Presidential Palace and awarded by Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.
We chose to talk about seven continents and introduce children with something very specific and interesting about each conticent.
