Spring has sprung in the baby room

The babies having been exploring spring this week! They have enjoyed filling and emptying plant pots with leafy playdough.  They have also discovered a daffodil exploration tray, picking up the petals in between their fingers and smelling them! The babies also enjoyed mark making with spring colours. They were able to sit down and remain engaged whilst they painted until they wanted to explore something else.
