Another addition to our play yard this week was a mini see-saw or balancing board. It is wonderful for children to walk across the board, feeling it tip under their weight when they reach a certain point. They also like to just stand in the middle and try to keep it even and level. This is good exercise for their gross motor skills. We also added in some big, sturdy dump trucks which were rolled and hauled all over the yard. With so many puddles, car washes became a renewed interest, with brushes and watering cans pulled out to do cleaning duty.
