The Garden Centre

The theme for Aistear this month was the garden centre.  We had some very eager gardeners in the class, visiting the garden centre to buy pots and seeds and then planting them at the potting station.

While at the play dough table, the boys were creating flowers, fences, hoses and many more objects that you would buy in a garden centre.
