Baby Bear also noticed that the grass was much easier to pull up, roots and all, when the ground was wet. He proved this fact over and over again! This was a great on-the-spot, toddler-friendly discovery science lesson! He could also note that the grass had roots which were previously hidden under the dirt. He stared at and touched these roots in fascination.
Clean-up was amazingly easy for this spur-of-the-moment task as well. We were playing in the spot sprinkler anyway, so I just hosed him off when he was done! Chalk another one up for discovery learning!
