Changes to the Environment

For dramatic play we will play in the bakery.  For art play we will make mice dance with painted feet on white paper.  We will play with wood chips, PVC, and mice for sensory play and we will build train tracks for construction play.  For small motor play we will use scissors to cut paper and for large motor play we will dance to some “Mouse Tunes”.
