Investigative Play

Toddlerhood seems to be accompanied by an insatiable appetite for exploration and investigation. Today, I provided Bee with an opportunity to do just that - a treasure box!

 I filled our box with some items from the yard, and a chunky bracelet painted with a floral motif. Bee has really taken a liking to flowers lately, so I thought she'd really enjoy it! I also introduced a new tool for her use, a magnifying glass that I picked up at the dollar store. We also had the perfect fashion accessory ready for this sweet little detective! 

 As I suspected, she went straight for the magnifying glass, and it was a huge hit! We spent the afternoon examining rocks, sticks, dirt, leaves, and flowers under the lens.
