    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will feature the bakery.  For art we will paint by shaking bells in coffee cans and we will find bells hidden in the pom poms for sensory play.  We'll build using the Duplo Legos in the construction area and we'll pick up bells with tweezers for small motor play.  For large motor play we'll dance with bells.
