Infant Explorers Potato Flakes

 a little foot covered with a little potato cake formed from walking around in the potato flakesgroup of children playing with potato flakesToday Infants enjoyed potato flake play. Our inspiration came from Crystal Underwood's blog post featured on A Growing Jeweled Rose.
