It was a short week, but a busy one.
Using the children's interest in cooking, we used the mixer to make play-dough. Everyone took a turn helping to add our ingredients to the bowl. After it was done, everyone sat around the table to play and explore. Each child chose a color glitter to put inside their dough ball. Singing a variety of songs, we managed to flatten our dough. During the remainder of the week, the children used scissors with the play-dough, helping to strengthen their fine motor skills.
We introduced the children to using loose parts to create work.
We also brought out our table easels for the children.
