I use to just watch the kids when they played outside to make sure no one got hurt and that they played nice. Now I realize that their outside play contains important learning opportunities such as social skills, cooperation and problem solving! I am learning to grab onto these opportunities more and more!
These two were trying to create a teeter-totter with our logs, but it was not working out so well! I loved watching them problem solve and work together to come up with a solution!
