The younger infants
The young infant class explored oranges, grapefruit, and kiwi through sight, smell, taste, and touch. They really enjoyed rolling the oranges as well as filling containers with the oranges, and then dumping them out again. The weather was beautiful this week, and we took full advantage by taking neighborhood strolls. Next week, will be filled with more activities to tantilize the infants senses.

The older infants
The older infants have spent a lot of time outside this week. They have been playing as a group in the sand and also socializing with some of the older children in the play house. They have been exploring mud and sand, mixing dirt with water and using it as paint. Next week we will continue exploring their love of mud and will use it for printing.
