Missing Summer!

Today in the Oak Room,  we were missing the hot summer weather! Livy, Harper and Mathias thought it would be a good idea to build a beach with water out of the building blocks to remind them of how the summer air feels.

Livy was helping Harper and Mathias collect rocks. Harper said, "Livy! We need more blue blocks for the water, and more green blocks for some seaweed."
Mathis followed with, "You guys! Do we have orange rocks? Maybe those could be the fish at the beach."

Here, Livy was looking at what blocks or other materials she could gather next, to make sure the water would stay in the beach and if they needed more barriers to keep it in. 

Mathias started a separate barrier for his starfish, rocks, and tiles that he called shells. Livy said, "Mathias, we could add actual seashells that we have in a basket over there!" 

It was a chilly, but great Monday at the CDLL!
