Foot sensing in toddlers’ class
Toddlers love to explore with their body and try their senses.
It’s time in class to explore by using our feet. Sο, we take our shoes off, by ourselves, though we are still two y.o., and the trip begins….
We walk barefoot on cloth, on sand and on the wooden floor…
Eventually, we step on paint and left our footprint on paper.
Everyone loves it!

Here comes the first smile
September. First days in school for many toddlers. First goodbye to mom….
I notice colors impress children and make them forget their anxiety.
A white paper and temperas. Curiosity.
Choosing and mixing colors. Experimentation. First with brush. Second with fingers. At the end, whole hand is full of color.
Her comes the first smile.
Next day, the children come to me and ask for colors….
