Some spring stuff.

Spring forward to new materials...

Friendship bracelets for friends!

Tonging mini eggs into a nest.

What's hiding in the grass. "Peep, peep."

Pouring sand with a funnel.

Local birds with three part nomenclature cards.

We have been learning to draw faces. This outline helps children think about placement of eyes, nose, and mouth.

Self-portrait work. This work offers the child a bit more of a challenge: having to draw the shape of the head and all the details of their face that they see in the mirror.

We took close of shots of each child, then cut the pictures in half. The child completes the other side of his or her face.

Children learn gentle touch and enjoy a break from busy work cycles with the massage materials.
