In KW recently, we’ve been interested in reflecting on certain parts of past experiences to the Canal. Jay has mentioned that he would like to build a clay bridge that we could add to the current clay canal construction. Today we asked friends if they’d like to paint some variations of the bridges they’ve seen along the canal. In addition to bridges, some friends painted the forsythia that we saw growing along the canal. It was nice for children to engage with a bigger space on the easel for these ongoing reflections.
Max: What kind of flower is that?
Kate: It’s called forsythia.
Max: Yes, it’s the first spring flower. I need a yucky color for the canal water because it’s yucky and dirty.
It was interesting to observe the different bridge details that friends included. Carl's bridge focused more on the column-like structure while Jay's highlighted the arches.
Play in the dollhouse and a skate park construction that was created in the Tucker Room were also popular this afternoon.
We're looking forward to some cooking projects this week and a trip to the waterfront this Friday to continue some duck (feather) research! Stay tuned!
