An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ April 29th-May 3rd


Each week we spend more and more time outside. 

On this particular day the children took our nature bags and went in search of all sorts of nature:
dandelions, violets, dried tulip petals, buttercups, pinecones, grasses....








After gathering all sorts of lovely nature,
the children glued them to cardstock to make a nature picture!







While out and about we stopped by Poppaw John's garden!
Our peas are up!!



 We nibbled onions and lettuce and brought some back for lunch!



And like every time we visit the garden, the little ones MUST hunt worms. 
Poopaw John is a good sport!




Climbing, creeking, and rolling down hills makes up the rest of our mornings!








**I'd like to thank Carla for reminding me how much fun Nature Art can be!

  7. Nature looks so amazing in these pictures. Our dandelions are still all yellow and there's no blowers about. I need to get out and play with the mini-beasts with my boy and this has reminded me.

    Thanks for linking up with the Spring Carnival.

  22. Another fun idea is to grow a pet TickleMe Plant and watch how the leaves fold and the branches fall down when you Tickle It! http://www.ticklemeplant.com
