This week on Caitie’s Classroom we learned all about butterflies! Caitie explored in a sensory bin full of colored pasta. Make these colorful pasta pieces at home to create your own sensory bin. Show us your creations on social media using the hashtag #CaitiesClassroom! We’d love to see what you’re creating.
