At Preschool, Little Elephant is learning about foods, or, as she says, FOODIE! They did an art project about carrots where they cut out leaves and the carrot in the appropriate colors and pasted them on paper. Then, they smudged “dirt” (okay, coffee grounds) on top.
Tonight on Skype, we were talking about it. I explained that the art was teaching her how carrots grow in the ground and what a fun idea it was. She ruefully looked at me: “No, Mommy! Carrots grow in COFFEE!”
Of course! How did I miss that.
