Slimy the Slug

 This is Slimy. He is a slug that one of the toddlers found on the playground. 


 The toddlers had fun watching Slimy. We put him into a small jar with some grass so the we could take him inside with us to show the other teachers and the preschool class. The toddlers were excited to share their amazing find. Slimy spent the afternoon with us safe inside his jar while the toddlers carefully watched his activities. He was released back into the garden at the end of the day.
