After reading “The Looking Book,” I gave each child their own pair of lookers to wear so we could head outdoors and take our own looking walk!

Crafting Connections shared some fantastic ways to encourage young scientists with this practical guide… Blog Me Mom shared this really cool red […]
I have always wanted to try gelatin play and finally took the time to put it together using our own version of spider parts and it was totally worth it.

Spiders are quite common around our preschool and so we spent a little time reading about and making our own very busy spiders.
Today’s explore and discovery linky is all about science! I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed this simple science process with bubbles and water color!
