He LOVED this day!

Continued with counting, colors, and lining
up the frogs.  Added different sounds of frogs
from YouTube

His favorite to date - pipe cleaner and beads
First three beads he needed my help but
after that he was a pro!  Created patterns,
counted, and so much fun.

He was zoned in

Water Play

Play-Doh Time - let him use a plastic knife and then
scissors to practice cutting
