We have been exploring flowers through sensory play

In the baby room, we have been exploring flowers through sensory play. We enjoyed feeling the flowers and picking the petals off, as well as putting them on our noses! We explored the cold, slippery ice cubes, and watched them melt to reveal the yellow flowers! We explored the play dough with our flowers, creating textured and colourful designs.
