Play in the mud! Fun times during Spread Your Wings today. We'll be back at it next Thursday! #playinthemud #getoutside #spreadyourwings #natureplay #petalsinthepines #canterburynh

Practicing...... I'm pretty sure sticks are my kids all time favourite thing to play with ever, which I really love! It's so fun to watch what they do without adult interference, don't worry though, it didn't work so no fires were had this day 😉 .

We had a zootots class today @dickersonparkzoo. We explored forest habitats and got to see a screech owl up close! Monroe was excited to see how far the owl could turn it's head around since it was one of the characteristics he knew about owls. They had a green noodle sensory bin with forest animal figures and a painting craft of their names with forestleaf presses. I feel so lucky to get to experience these classes with my kids, they're wonderful!

Nature is just cool - lakes, dirt and rocks can be rich reds, set against deep green forests and vibrant blue skies. I’ve enjoyed watching Tristan at work with his art, painting water different hues - yellow, blue, red (here at this lake). Each time I was briefly confused by his color choice knowing that he was coloring water (and unimaginatively of me, I was picturing it blue)...until I realized that he saw the picture so much more fully and picked up on the full palette of colors on display before him. I think I’ll have to start taking art lessons from him!

When we’re @kidspacemuseum we like to pretend we’re going through the tunnel to Totoro 🌰🌰🌰🌿. Kidspace Museum and “My Neighbor Totoro”, both essential for kids in my opinion. #myneighbortotoro #anime #kidsmuseum #stillgrowing #letthemplay #nature #natureplay #imagination

Before today, I’ve always been a little bummed about being in a building with concrete floors. Not cozy or homey at all right?! Rugs everywhere! However, today, as it pours outside and our littles have a ton of pent up energy, these same floors came in so useful. With a little out of the box thinking, we decided we could do some chalk exploration (super easy clean-up, too). Our toddlers LOVED it! Seriously, they had so much fun. And, a few friends even asked for their name cards to practice writing their names. How cool for me as a teacher to see the two activities combine! What part of your room do your dislike the most? Has it ever come in useful for you? .

I have my very own little mermaid haha 😂. She has such a wild spirit. Some days I can’t even handle her, but I wouldn’t change her for the world. ❤️

She loves playing in dirt... so why not do something with her involving dirt 😃 transplanting our strawberry plant into a bigger pot. #breastfeedingmomma #letthembefree #ourcandidlife #natureplay #wildandfreechildren #gentleparenting #momof4 #mommyhood #ohheymomma #letthembekids #girlmommy #runwildmychild #yogamomma #nothingisordinary #dailyparenting #adventureswithchildren

This morning was all about “super jumps” 👣💦 Puddles, puddles, and more puddles for our explorers! #thanksmothernature #puddlejumping #endlessfun #superjumps #puddleplay #natureplay #earlyexplorers #creekfordacademy #ygk #ygkfamily #kingston_on #kingstonontario

We had so much fun in the woods on Tuesday with @discoverysprouts. We made houses for little piggies and mixed our own mud paint to decorate the trees with. Ava was captivated by these ribbons which blew in the breeze. Thank you @bizibees, we will be back! XX

We had such a lovely time playing with our piggie friends in different ways. We hid, balanced, and went on some wild rides! This summer is flying by!

•RAIN CLOUDS• This was a simple but totally fun activity. For our rain cloud I used half of a #Mashems container, it comes with holes already in the bottom so it made a perfect little rain cloud 🌧
.
I filled a small bucket with water and put some #fisherpricelittlepeople in a container standing on top of pouch lids which were our grass. The nice thing about the pouch lids was the water would drip right through the holes in the lids so our people weren't drowning in a giant puddle. Also, it created a great representation of how rain water soaks down into the ground. 🌿
