It was a nice day today, with mild, mid-40 degree weather. It was a perfect day to do something, anything, as long as it was outside of the house. Every Thursday morning through much of the winter and into the spring, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory hosts Lil' Explorer Thursdays. In an open area of the conservatory there are rugs and tables set up with various activities, all tied into a theme. Today's activities all focused on seeds, plants, and trees. After planting a seed to take home, playing in a seed sensory bin, putting together a tree puzzle, and counting out apples and oranges to put on a paper tree, we moved on to touring the gardens in the conservatory, then the zoo.
