Outdoor Play

Plunger Prints:  It took quite some strong muscles to pull the wet plunger from a piece of paper with paint on it!  The children were provided with an opportunity to be creative using a household object.

Water-play, wet-sand play and water brush painting: These activities allowed cognitive skills to be integrated with physical play which engaged the children and fostered their learning.  They were able to investigate, observe and explore conceptual understanding such as volume - full/empty.  Playing with water and sand offered the children an opportunity to experience and discriminate a multitude of sensory information through the skin such as tactile discrimination - wet/dry.  Besides promoting spontaneous speech and language, these emotional engaging activities encouraged them to interact, share and collaborate.
