Sensory/Mindfulness/Dramatic Play: Mud Kitchen: Once you’ve made some mud with your mud kitchen, see what you can add. You could add tools, sticks, leaves, rocks, or anything else you want!


Gross Motor/Yoga/Outdoor/Games: Bug Scavenger Hunt: Now that you’ve been finding bugs outside, see if your Turtle can decide if the bugs you see are insects or not! Check for three body parts, two antennae, and six legs!



STEM: Color worms by size: Challenge your Turtle to draw their very own worms in different sizes! See if they can draw a small, medium, and large worm. You can ask them to compare their worms by using words like “larger, smaller, largest, and smallest”
