Our main school bins are always available, and come down a lot.  I move things around to inspire “choices” and sometimes will lay a bin out to encourage play.  This day I had set out the stacking pegs and she went right to building!IMG_4199

We played SO much, but I hardly took any photos during play time!

Ladybug has become quite the artist this past week, drawing little faces everywhere!

One day I showed her how to draw a stick person, and she copied me!  Hers is on the left and she then added to my example on the right!IMG_4091Our great friend was over one night and she drew him!  I think it looks just like him!IMG_4280

She also explored finger paint, be sure to see the post if you’d like to see more!

We have a few friends come over once a week for a play date.  What a wonderful time of learning this is for Ladybug.  On the right, she was waiting for an apology from the sweet little boy who accidentally hit her with the trike.  I love her face!

Little Miss learned how to drink out of a water bottle without spilling and was quite proud of herself.  She is also pretty proud of her Daddy.
