Today's Topic: FOOTPRINT CRAFT & SWAP MEET
Today we did our footprint craft and had our Nest swap meet!
We also had some fun sensory play things set up for the babies! :) I set up a sensory walk. Remember, grass, sand, and the sun are all sensory experiences for your baby so there is NO NEED to set up fancy sensory play for them as long as you're mindful of exposing them to the sensory experiences that exist naturally in their world. :) If you want to read more about sensory walks, though, check out this blog post!
