We've traded a lot of our indoor play and art time for being outdoors. It's perfect weather these days. There's lots to do outside--play in the sand, garden, bounce on the trampoline, pull things in a wagon, climb the playground equipment. Sabrina does it all, but always feels the pull of her art and so every morning and afternoon she will use her chalk, decorate a mound of dirt with flowers and pebbles or make sculptures out of sand and dirt. I really want us to explore using more natural materials in art this season. My first step is to watch Sabrina because she finds incredible uses for everything she finds.
