On Safari

We spent time with the preschool class out on our walking path. The toddlers loved having freedom to explore on their own and discover all that there is for them to discover. They played together and alone, they played with dirt, grass, leaves, mud etc. They used all of their senses to explore.  The older toddlers were asking questions about things that they were seeing and hearing.
