Spring is here and I’m finding it difficult to stay indoors. Still, there is a lot of indoor work to do so sometimes I have to. Luckily the children and I have been able to spend several hours outdoors each day. Instead of spending too much time sitting here writing I’ll just post a few pictures and a brief description of some of their recent activities.
One day during spring break the children built ‘bridges’ all around the gravel area. This activity was initiated by one of the children but all of the others joined in. Everyone used the bridges/walkways. Everyone helped create and modify the paths as needed. There was no bickering, grabbing/pushing, or screeching ‘MINE!’ when pieces were rearranged.
On Friday we went for a super long walk up and down every street in the neighbourhood. These toddlers are becoming expert hikers! They are also very observant. These one and two year olds were easily able to spot the woodpecker when they heard the sound. The bird was barely visible so high up in the tree that my phone camera on maximum zoom could not capture it. Still the toddlers focused on it and stood silently for over five minutes watching the busy bird.
