The kids were asked if they had wings like a butterfly, what colors would they be? They chose colors and we made symmetrical butterfly wings! They were given a piece of folded paper, painted with their choice of colors and then we smashed the paper together.
We played in sand, grass and rice this week. I gave the kids easter grass, bugs and numbers. They fed the bugs matching numbers and grass! They asked for ABC's so we played for well over an hour with bugs, numbers and ABC's all their choice. Shhhh...don't tell them they are actually learning so much by playing and using their imaginations. We talked about colors, numbers, letters and so much more while playing. As an educator I do my best to set the invitations to play up in such a way that they are irresistible to these little kiddos! Today was a success with the bugs & grass.
