The flour is a favorite of the children. They use the sifter (creates good hand muscles for writing) to make mountains, cakes, cover things up, make it snow, etc...they stir, measure, fill, pour.....all science. It is soothing and helps calm the ones that need calming. I will keep this up all of December.
This is the snowman making table....I will keep this up all week. I started with blue paper, white circles, buttons, tiny pom poms, red, green, and white yarn, and glue. I will add new things every day....Like popsicle sticks, clear colored plastic pieces, eyes, orange pipe cleaners, straw, etc...
