Feeding the ducks
On our way home from the library we stopped to feed some of the ducks and birds.
We visited the local library and enjoyed reading the story of Elmer the elephant. We even spotted a fairy door…wonder what type of books that fairy likes to read?
With lots of snowfall on Wednesday, we thought it would be a good idea to feed the birds. We also made a small snowman with the fresh snow. Afterwards, we had some hot chocolate to warm up🍵.
The girls learnt about the life cycle of chickens.
After learning what seeds and plants need to grow healthy and strong, the girls enjoyed planting cress seeds, peas and spinach seeds.
