Watching the train go 'round and 'round. Cool creation by Kim Adams at the AGO.
Our visit to the new local ol' time Candy Shoppe!! So many delicious treats from many different countries. Tasty AND educational!
Some of our ideas for being good friends to Earth and all living things were: Having more car free days -- Picking up litter -- Packing litter-less lunches -- Planting trees and flowers for the living creatures around us -- Turning off lights and running water -- Reusable bottles for water -- Having a garden -- Riding bicycles and scooters -- Having fun in parks --
Pretty amazing ideas from our little green friends in playgroup!
The group decided to help out on Earth Day by picking up litter out front of Dewson. We suited up with plastic gloves that would protect our hands from germs on the garbage. It was hard to decide on a name for our little crew of cleaners. "Good to the Planet" and"Balloon Hands"are what we decided upon.
We also made pinecone bird feeders to hang in our yards. We used the pinecones we collected last time we were in high park. It was fun turning them into feeders that could go back into the trees for the birds (or squirrels!) to enjoy!

Leah Gold (Bellwoods Playschool co-founder/superwoman extraordinaire) took us on a tour of her studio and then suited us up for some fun times with inks!
The process begins...
A creature is born!!!
Leah cut out the different shapes and patterns from our ink drawings and shuffled the beautiful pieces around like a puzzle until it all came together and a new creature was born!! We love looking to see what parts of the creature our drawings created.
Our creature will soon have a new friend to keep him/her/it company! The rest of the playschool friends are set to visit Leah and make a friend for this colourful creature!
Day 2 & Creature 2
OUR FINISHED CREATURES!!!!
