I have noticed that since Caroline has been in preschool, she has been a bit 'bored' at home. I have had to step up the activities for her. On Thursday, we were stuck at home waiting on my freezer to be delivered and I needed to work in the garage to prepare for its arrival. So, I poured 4 bags of white rice in a large bowl and mixed in insects of different colors. I then gave her plates to sort her insects. This lasted for hours! I decided that my glass mixing bowl wasn't the best idea and replaced it with a plastic storage container. I put on the lid, put it on the shelf and now we have an instant learning center!
