Essentials For Every Field Day ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2018 )

Students had fun at the Field Day games

Water slide was K’s favorite at the Field Day.

The classic game of Tug-O-War. Field Day 2018.

Yesterday, Friday, was Field Day at K’s school. Everyone was very busy preparing the outdoor games, obstacle courses, bounce house, and water slide.  The children were very excited and couldn’t wait for the special day to come.

The night before, I prepared the important things K may need according to the school’s notice-sunscreen, towel, bottled water, change clothes, and snack/sack lunch.

Sunscreen

Because all the activities are outdoors and late Spring in Texas start to get really hot, it is very necessary to put on sunscreen. Even if it is a cloudy weather, putting on sunscreen is highly recommended to prevent getting sunburns especially on young children’s skin.  We’ve been using Banana Boat Sun Comfort Sunscreen Spray.  It has been our trusted protection against harmful UV rays for years whenever we go outdoors or to the beach.  It’s non-sticky feel after spraying gives it the advantage.

Towel and Change Clothes

Usually field day activities include water games.  Darling daughter said the water slide was her favorite among all the fun games yesterday. So she brought a towel and change clothes because, boy, the students were soaking wet yesterday from the water slide and sponge battle. They had a lot of fun.

Bottled Water

Of course, with constant movement in the heat, the kids needed hydration. And the most convenient item to bring was bottled water.  The only thing was, there’s no place to put those drinks in.  The crate was full of towels. So I had to look for a big plastic bag to put all those drinks in so I can carry them around.  Gladly one of the staff at the sign in area under the shade of the trees had an extra big plastic bag.

Sack Lunch and Snack 

I don’t remember if I ordered a sack lunch for K from the cafeteria weeks before the field day. So I packed her lunch anyway just in case I didn’t.  After the students’ completed all the outdoor activities, they went back to the classrooms and changed.  Then they proceed to the cafeteria for the dance party and yearbook signing. The students ate lunch in their respective classrooms after.

It was an awesome fun day. Good thing the First Graders were the first ones in the schedule to go outdoors before it got too hot at mid day. To end the day, they had Kona Ice to cool them off.  What a great day!

Elementary Field Day Filled With Physical Activities and Water Fun ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2017 )

Tug-of-war

K’s school had it’s yearly Field Day this morning.  All elementary students were geared up and excited for this amazing day to show their physical capabilities on fun games and to enhance their social development and sportsmanship.

The event was held at the high school athletic facility.  Students, together with their respective teachers, facilitating staff, and attending parents gathered at the athletic field for a great day of fun.

The activities/sports were facilitated according to stations. Each station had at least three assigned coordinator so the children were well-guided at these games: Bouncy Ball Race, Sponge Water Splash, Relay Race, Soccer game, and the classic game of Tug-O-War.

Sponge water splash.

K enjoyed the bouncy ball race and the sponge water splash most. She didn’t get the chance to guard the goal and got to kick the ball only once at the soccer game. But she had fun playing. That’s the most important part of the Field Day. Having fun.  Then we had a picnic lunch under the bleachers because it’s shady and the wind was very refreshing.  Then we had Kona Ice after lunch. Yay!

Picnic lunch.

Kona Ice. Yay!

The school was prompt sending announcements about this special event. We were well-prepared for the Field Day. It’s a hot cloudy day and the wind was blowing pretty hard. We brought:

  • Sunscreen
  • Water
  • Extra clothes
  • Towel
  • Food

Another memorable and fantastic day today. 🙂
