Heffalump Preschool open house party

Heffalump Preschool open house party

When: Saturday March The 3rd Time: 11 am - 1 pm Where: Heffalump Preschool 3990 Ventura Court Palo Alto ca 94306 “Squeaky The Toad Day” is a “unique holiday”, only observed at Heffalump and we’re going to celebrate big time. Join us for this potluck of food, music, games, and prizes. Kids and adults welcome to come in costume. Calling all Heffalump alumni, neighbors, and friends to a hop race Can you come out to play and spend time meeting new and old friends? Heffalump's magical holiday began 27 years ago with a Heffalumper, who arrived at school with their face painted, roller skates, a skirt and a batch of cupcakes. The only reason he gave was “Well, it’s March The Third”. The lore has developed around “Squeaky The Toad”, who lives on the moon. If the kids send messages in a rocket, he rides his vacuum to Heffalump, and if the children have remembered to put their shoes in their cubbies, he then fills them with treats. They had “toad cakes” and “slime punch”, toad games and prizes for all. Today Squeaky has a new son name “Squeaky Jr.” Squeaky Jr. rides a scooter and calls Heffalump on his satellite phone to challenge children to be active and win prizes. He love to share so we have a potluck. We are always looking for new friends so we celebrate with open house.
