Fuzzy chicks, mud puddles, and tiny seeds were the name of the game this week. Colorful signs of spring were explored through rainbow collaged books, plant-based dye-making (think raspberries making vibrant pink dye), and dyed rice rainbows. We began all kinds of seedlings (peppers, squash, arugula, tomatoes) in the greenhouse and in the cold frame. We also started seed experiments using ball jars and moist paper towels in the classroom. During our outdoor adventures, mud slurped up our boots which incited dramatic play of “mud rescuers”.
