Tu B’shvat is here! We’ve been learning about trees and getting ready for a special Tu B’shvat fruit tasting party on Wednesday.

We touched a real tree branch. The brown bark felt bumpy and rough on our fingers. Together we created a forest on our window sill. We each made a little tree by painting a toilet paper roll and making green leaves for the top.

We also made a big tree to decorate the art room wall. We painted the trunk and made handprints for the leaves.

Some other things we’ve been enjoying are the sand table, playdough, and playing with bouncy balls in the gym.
