This week the preschoolers tried to explore how to make different textures on paper using different items. They started off painting the tires of cars to make tracks but ended up painting the cars entirely instead.
We also used cotton balls with paint to dab onto paper, creating cloud/snow like textures on the paper.
Speaking of snow, the preschoolers tried to practice their cutting skills by making paper snow flakes. Although they found it harder to accomplish the more layers there were.
While using the light table, the preschoolers filled up little plastic cups with various small materials , pretending to make food.
A few preschoolers noticed that there was a feature on the white noise elephant that cycled through different sounds such as rain, waves and even bugs. They were quick to compare the bug sounds to the butterfly decorative plant next to it.
We set up another obstacle course outside to challenge the preschoolers balancing. They liked the jumping portion near the end, trying to land on the wood.
We also set up an obstacle course for friends that wanted to ride bikes for them to practice their reaction time and steering. They had to navigate through narrow spaces made out of traffic cones, wood planks, and water maze pillers.
