    Changes to the Environment

    We will open a flower shop for dramatic play. For art play, we will paint with pom-poms and clothespins. We will look for seeds, animals, and bugs in dirt for sensory play. We will build kites for construction play and we will sort seeds for small motor play. For large motor play, we will move like different spring animals.
