First Steps Preschool recently had a four-day camp for 3- and 4-year-old children. The week was filled with special visitors, crafts, games and music that corresponded to the theme of the day.

On the first day the children learned the parable of the wise and foolish man, and they made stepping stones out of cement and polished rocks.

The second day they learned the story of the Good Samaritan and a nurse taught them about proper hand washing, wound care and nutrition. The students also made get well cards for members of the community.

The Rincon Police also visited and spoke with the children about car seat, gun, and stranger safety.

On the third day the children learned the parable of Jesus feeding the multitudes with five loaves of bread and two fish. They enjoyed rolls for snack to correspond with the story.

On the fourth day the children climbed into a pretend boat and learned the story of Jesus calming the waters. They enjoyed making wind noises out of plastic bags and having real water squirted on them.

The Department of Natural Resources also visited bringing their real boat and taught the children all about boating and water safety.

The camp ended with the children swimming and having a pizza party.

First Steps Preschool is a ministry of the Rincon First Christian Church, located at 5835 Highway 21 South in Rincon. For fall registration information, call 826-9738.
