This holiday is one of the favorites of the children who are resting in the camp. Neptune Day is often held in kindergarten during the heat of the summer. In addition to the sea king Neptune, there may be such characters as Water, Kikimora, the Little Mermaid, Frog, Medusa, Sea Devils and other evil spirits that live in the seas, lakes and swamps. Educators with the help of methodologists are developing a script.
Neptune Day in Kindergarten
The holiday should be held on a very hot day, because dousing with water is mandatory, and in kindergartens that have their own swimming pool, bathing is also required. In order not to spoil the clothes, the children participating in the competitions change into swimsuits or swimming trunks.
Neptune Day Holiday
First, the host greets the kids. He proposes to consider the holiday open and, together with the children, calls the main character - Neptune. The music turns on - some kind of marine theme, and under it the sea king himself appears. Along with him come his assistants, these may bedevils, kikimora, fish. Then there are competitions and games. Children are divided into two teams with "marine" names. If the kindergarten has a swimming pool, then the water descends to a safe level. Many tasks can be completed in it.
Neptune Day Pool Games
Bring a coin
The pool is divided in half, several coins are scattered along its bottom. Participants are divided into teams and quickly collect money in their zone, passing them to their captain. The team that completes the task first is the winner.
Instead of coins, kinder surprises without chocolate with a load inside are placed in the pool. Children catch them with small buckets. The team that defuses the most shells wins.
Moor the ship
2 boats descend into the water. Team members must moor it to the port located on the opposite edge of the pool, without touching it with their hands, but only blowing on it. If there is no pool, then games can be played on the playground.
Cross the swamp
Plates and pebbles are placed on the ground. These are bumps. It is necessary to move from one edge of the site to the other without stepping on the ground. The team with the most participants who managed to complete the task wins.
Save the fish
Buckets with water are placed on the stools. On the other side of the site, jars are placed in which there are plastic fish. Team members run to the bucket, scoop it up with a wooden spoon and quickly move back, after which they pour the brought water into the jar. The team whose container fills up the fastest wins.
Collect the rain
Neptune's helpers are standing on a stool, they have watering cans in their hands. They spin in different directions, pour water. Children hold disposable cups in which they try to catch the "rain".
Neptune Day in kindergarten. The end of the holiday
In between active competitions, you can arrange intellectual ones by picking up riddles on the marine theme. Then the results are summed up, the winners receive prizes, the losers receive gifts. Neptune says goodbye to the guys, praises them, says that he did not expect them to be so brave, strong, provocative. Then everyone pours water on each other.
