|He stayed busy using his scoops to put butterflies in small containers, dumping them out, and doing it over again and again. As always, he tried to eat our activity but since it was hard pasta he only tried once and I didn’t worry because it was just dried pasta. I like to try and keep our toddler activities edible.|
|Ms. Tiger (age 3.5) sorted her butterflies in containers and made them each a little bed to sleep in. After playing for awhile she also put her butterflies on her counting mat and we named the numbers together.|
|I love watching my kiddos play and learn together!|
