Our little friends have been very busy inventors, painters, and explorers!
*Leaf Collage Invitation*
Continuing our study of leaves and fall, we used our huge leaf collection to collage! Our Wednesday friends organized our leaves for us according to color which made it easier to choose which leaves we wanted to use for our masterpieces. This exercise was a great way for our minds to warm up in the morning as it took some good imagining and planning to foresee our leaf collage creation. We found that it was a little difficult for us to use the leave...
Leaves, leaves, and more LEAVES! Our collection of leaves from our nature walks has provided us with a plethora of nature inspired activities! Gotta love free natural learning tools! :-)

*Outdoor Creative Play*
Thanks to the beautiful weather we have had a never-ending opportunity to explore invitations outdoors! Introducing liquid watercolors to our friends encouraged them to invent new colors. We delved further into shapes by studying circles. We painted cylinder tubes and used p...
In case you missed us last Sunday, we a had a great time reading and creating as families! After reading Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni, our families enjoyed collecting natural materials to use in their collages. We let our inspiration from Leo Lionni's illustrations guide us!
Each collage was different and each told a unique story!
*Working together, we can find a variety of materials in nature!*
*We like to call this our glue concentration face! :-)*
*What may seem like a simple blade of grass can turn into a...
