Warm summer days are here and I think that one of the best ways to cool off is to splash around in water! We don’t have a pool and Henry is a little afraid of sprinklers so I decided to take the water sensory bin outside.
I wanted to add some new objects to the bin for Henry to explore but didn’t feel like running to the store and spending money. Instead I turned to our recycling bin! You know what they say…..one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. I gathered up a mustard bottle, dish soap bottle, mayonnaise jar, fruit cups, parmesan cheese container, Gatorade powder scoop and lots of Coke bottle caps. In case you were wondering; no we didn’t not drink that much pop in one week! Stephen got the caps from work.
Henry had a marvelous time exploring the objects and discovering different ways to manipulate the water!
While he played I talked to him about what he was doing; using vocabulary words like pour, scoop, dunk, shake, squeeze, in, out, empty and full.
