Ayla loves the moon at the moment, if he is out she will spot him and make sure everyone knows “moon” is out. Ayla used her cups to pour the beans and even laid in the tray a few times. Ayla for the first time (that I have noticed) entered the enveloping schema, she began placing the stars and other objects into the cups and covered them with the beans. I asked where they went and she responded with “in there”. As Ayla played I read ‘hello world solar system’ which is a really lovely book for introducing the solar system to toddlers!
