We are all enjoying the Spring weather, here at Little Starfish. And...we are making the most of it by spending time outside playing in the Starfish play yard, digging in the dirt, climbing the beautiful cherry tree which bloomed early this year, and rolling and romping in the lush green grass.
The Pea Patch is nearly ready to be planted with peas, carrots, pumpkins and sunflowers. We have started the seeds in little peat pellets inside plastic cups set on the windowsill so that we can watch them sprout. Each day we give them a drink and observe their growth process.
The children are fascinated with the natural world. They enjoy learning about where our food comes from and growing their own too.
Becoming familiar with nature as a child helps to foster understanding and respect for nature as an adult!
