Day of the Bows. The script summer holiday.

Holiday Bows for children of the middle group.

The idea of this holiday I had in 1999. I usually spend this holiday in late July. It helps my new pupils (set to the middle group) to adapt in kindergarten, and parents to be creative and imaginative approach to making costumes.

This photograph was taken in 1999 (middle school children). This year these kids graduated from 11th grade! And then I was a young teacher (in the photo – I’m in the middle with two funny ponytails)

By the way, this holiday won Dasha – her mom sewed 74 charming bow. But IDA was recognized as the most extravagant and original!

This holiday I spent 3 times. And every time this sea of emotions and children’s happiness!
