Seasons Sort



Easter/Spring:

 I got the little hole punch at WalMart for like $0.97!!!

I drew an egg and I had Froglet add the number of stickers according to the number.

 Here was the sensory bin I made with multi-colored paper.
Ignore my finger lol
Froglet was searching for the eggs to lay on the paper.

We dyed eggs for the  very first time.
Later we used those same dishes to dissolve those capsules.

Froglet didn't like the trees and kept taking them out lol
