Our Polliwog Thursday group has been getting to know each other, and getting to know the forest and pond at Huron Natural Area.
In our forest play area, our kitchen play has developed into a bakery. Campfire building is a popular chore for a couple of the children. And for several, marshmallows have played a big role over the past two weeks - this week, developing into marshmallow cookies with chocolate chips.
The log cabin is a popular play spot, and this week, an elaborate doorbell-ringing system was rigged up, with wiring running all through the house.
We've also met some friendly mice in the woods (pinecones) and we've made slides and amusement parks for them.
And we've seen evidence of creatures in the woods and pond: fish, ducks, geese, turtles, slugs, snails, and more.
And whose poo is this?
Giselle brought in a "feely box" where we could try to guess what nature items were inside. Some were prickly, some were hard, some were light and soft.
See you next week, Polliwogs!
