Home Sweet Home Child Care


Our very hot summer was perfect for nature water play. Our little explorers were busy exploring a variety of natural water play activities. One of our favorites was to make nature soup. We gathered rose petals, rocks, leaves, fresh lemons and water. We made several bins of soup with assorted shades of food coloring. Our children were so busy creating their soup. They squeezed the lemons from bin to bin and used all kinds of spoons, cups and buckets to move the colored water around. Let’s just say it was delicious.

They love to play with the tea dispenser turning the spout on and off, watching the water flow. We froze sand with hidden sea shells inside. Our explorers were very engaged with painting anything with paintbrushes, rollers and putting water or mud in a tray. We had our annual butterfly project, at the end of the project all the butterflies were released.
