This week was a busy week of crafting and baking. We dyed eggs, baked a special bread, filled eggshells with dirt and mud, and played in some newly created mud by our rainy Monday. We had guest "old school" visitors to join us this week, who brought fresh new ideas to our playtime. And with families visiting the beach as vacations are planned, one of the newest games has been to "drive a van to the beach". A playstand gets turned on it's side and children all pile in with their suitcases, snacks, and pets. There are stops to the gas station to refuel and get extra snacks. Then they get out at the beach and some children roll in the sand, some swim, and some prepare for the ride home.
