Previous Month’s Activities

The children have shown interest in food this past month.  Lillabelle, Caleigh and Nolan made a collage out of pictures of food. Dayton joined Kennedy and other friends at a picnic where they pretended making snacks for each other.  At our pretend grocery store, Keaton, Bentley and Jackson were busy pressing buttons on the cash register while Valerie and Everly were taking turns pushing the grocery cart filled with food containers.
