What can we see today???

We took a field trip down 24th street to play, "I Spy With My Little Eye." We brainstormed ideas before the walk and came up with some tricky things to spy! Thank goodness for the window on Noe and 24th that happened to have many of the things we wanted to spy: Kangaroos, monkeys, fish, cowboys.... The list goes on and on.

We continued to explore "touch" by painting and playing with shaving cream. The kids created mittens, used the shaving cream as a canvas for their art and drove little toy cars through the pillows of cream! The beauty of simple fun.
