Exploring and Experimenting



So happy the weather cleared up! Loved spending the day outside.  We welcomed Heather, Scott (and his baby brother) to our group this week! So happy you joined us!  

  
There was lot's of digging and shoveling going on!
                                                      The children worked hard and loved it!



I love how our days always flow so naturally...the children leading the way!  As the children were digging on Wednesday, Sam said "Im digging for worms."  This led to a worm and bug hunt!  And we found lots of ants, and rolly pollies!  



We had fun making nature pies and cakes!





 And we were Scientists experimenting with baking soda and vinegar.  Children love observing the fizzing chemical reaction...fun fun!






And of course we shared!  I love watching the children's faces when they are in the spot lot as we sing the sharing song....


 We took a walk and explored the gardens again.  We found more vegetables growing.  One of the parents spotted some sleeping bees.  I did a little research and yes the bees were indeed sleeping.  When it gets a little chilly they take a rest until their wings warm up, so they can fly again!



                                                       

                                                      And we read some good books and wore silly hats! Thanks for another terrific week!  Have a great weekend!   Joy
