Celery Preschool Activities

March is not just the beginning of spring; it’s also National Celery Month, providing a perfect opportunity to incorporate some celery preschool activities into your child care program.  From sensory play to open-ended art to snack time fun, celery can be a versatile learning tool for young children.
