The children of Toddler 1 created a natural dyed tapestry hanging.
Together the children crushed berries with their hands and added water to create a natural dye-cast. The children then gathered in the corral and helped lay muslin on top of a table. The dye-cast was brushed onto the fabric with paint brushes, by the children and then hung up to dry. The fabric was later mounted onto branches from nearby trees and hung in the classroom for permanent display.The children learned to
