Over the past couple of weeks we have been exploring several sensory experiences.
Lentils with black beans plus little plastic ants and spiders.
I included little cups and spoons.
But the children enjoyed picking out the little black pieces with
their finger and thumb.
We played with cloud dough but this time I added orange powder paint.
Although the paint makes the dough quite attractive it does cause a bit more
of a mess when the little ones brush their hands on their clothes.
So I don’t think I’ll add paint again.
Included were mini Hallowe’en shaped cake pans and pumpkin shaped jello
moulds with wooden spoons.
Orange garland that had Hallowe’en shaped cutouts attached.
I included little black pots and little spiky balls for pinching.
And lastly mini pumpkins to cut, carve and poke.
Having a variety of pumpkins gave us the opportunity to talk about
- that some of them are easy to cut while others are very hard.
- that some pumpkins have only a few seeds and others have lots.
- that some are orange and others are white or even yellow.
